Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease(COPD)
COPD is a group of lung diseases that include chronic bronchitis and emphysema, which are most often caused by heavy smoking. COPD can also include chronic asthma, which is a hypersensitivity of the air passages in the lungs. Bronchitis, emphysema and asthma all have one thing in common; they limit the flow of air in and out of your lungs. As a result, you may cough, wheeze and feel short of breath.
Pulmonary Stress Test
Pulmonary stress tests combine a regular stress test with a pulse oximeter to measure oxygen levels during the test. This test will help determine what your exercise capacity is, related heart/lung problems, and determine the need for oxygen while exercising. The test can be scheduled at our Diagnostic Center.
