Punxsutawney Physician Group Pulmonology/Critical Care

 

Pulmonary/Critical Care

Pulmonology/Critical Care Medicine refers to the medical specialty dealing with the causes, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases affecting the lungs. It is considered a branch of internal medicine, and is related to intensive care medicine.

Pulmonology/ Critical Care Specialists are specially trained in diseases and conditions of the chest. In particular, they can treat conditions such as pneumonia, asthma, tuberculosis, emphysema, and complicated chest infections.

Our specialist provides care for patients who are in the diagnostic or treatment stages of life-threatening or potentially life-threatening illnesses or injuries. These include conditions such as sepsis, shock, cardiac arrest, life-threatening infections, and severe respiratory failure.

In addition, our pulmonology/ critical care medicine team consists of experienced critical care nurses and respiratory therapists. They utilize one-on-one observations, state of the art life support systems, ventilators, central venous monitoring, and coordination with many sub-specialists. This is tied together with a patient-centered approach and specialized care to alleviate bothersome and life-threatening respiratory infections and catastrophic conditions.
