Two Convenient Locations
Pulmonary and Critical Care Consultants, Inc. offers two convenient locations for your convenience. Our newest office is conveniently located in the New Miami Valley Hospital South Campus.
The physicians of Pulmonary and Critical Care Consultants, Inc. are specialists that are certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine. Their specialties of certification range in Pulmonary Disease, Critical Care Medicine and Sleep Medicine.
Pulmonary medicine is concerned with diseases of the lungs and bronchial tubes, but can include the evaluation of the upper respiratory tract, heart and vascular system. The pulmonary specialists evaluate and treat diseases such as emphysema, asthma, or complicated chest infections. They may be consulted when there is an x-ray abnormality or to evaluate shortness of breath. Pulmonary specialists do not perform major surgery, however; they frequently perform special procedures such as thoracentesis (the removal of fluid from the chest) and bronchoscopy (the examination of the bronchial tubes). If a major surgical procedure is necessary, the pulmonary specialist often works closely with a thoracic surgeon before and after the procedure.
Critical Care specialists provide care for patients in the intensive care unit. Critically ill patients may have respiratory failure, sepsis (serious infection), shock, severe neurologic diseases, circulatory failure, kidney failure, liver failure or metabolic diseases. Critical care is provided in the hospital or other emergency setting.
Sleep Medicine is a specialty that involves care that could reverse various sleep-related disruption such as sleep apnea (short episodes where breathing stops during sleep), severe snoring, insomnia, excessive daytime sleepiness, narcolepsy and restless leg syndrome. There are different diagnostic tests that may be performed to diagnose the exact sleep disturbance. After diagnosing the disturbance, the specialist will work with the patient to find solutions to improve the sleep cycle.
