The pulmonary and respiratory health professionals at Longview Regional Medical Center specialize detecting, monitoring and treating lung - related issues.
The respiratory therapy department at Longview Regional offers a broad range of respiratory care services, including:
- Pulmonary function tests - diagnostic tests that help to measure the lungs' ability to exchange oxygen and carbon dioxide appropriately. Pulmonary Function testing can be done in our office at 709 Hollybrook Drive , Suite 3400.
- Bronchoscopy - a procedure that allows the physician to directly visualize the interior passageways of the lower respiratory tract through a bronchoscope
- Arterial blood gas - a blood test that is used to evaluate the lungs' ability to provide blood with oxygen and remove carbon dioxide, and to measure the pH (acidity) of the blood.
Respiratory services are available to both inpatients and outpatients 24 - hours a day, seven days a week.
