At Maranatha Medical Clinic, we are dedicated to providing diagnosis and treatment for common and rare lung diseases. We are experts in asthma management, COPD, bronchiectasis, sarcoidosis, lung cancer, and other less common problems like interstitial lung diseases and pulmonary hypertension.
However, if patients get sick, they can receive optimal acute treatment in our clinic consisting of bronchodilators, chest percussion therapy, intramuscular injections, and intravenous fluid administration. This way, we can prevent admissions to the hospital and keep our patients at home with skill nursing care and close monitoring.
Pulmonary Function Laboratory
To help us understand how well your lungs work, accurately diagnose what is causing your symptoms and to develop a treatment plan to address them, we typically perform pulmonary function tests. Pulmonary function tests are not invasive, meaning nothing is inserted into your body. Instead, you simply breathe or pant into a device as instructed.
Pulmonary function tests are performed by a certified respiratory therapist using state-of-the-art equipment similar to the one found in academic institutions. It includes using a body plethysmograph, also known as the body box, and a metabolic cart to diagnose pulmonary diseases and now with our brand new PulmOne we can perform the same test without the inconvenience of getting in the “box”.
Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program
Pulmonary rehabilitation is a multi-disciplinary program formulated through accurate diagnosis, therapy, and education. It stabilizes or reverses the pathology of pulmonary diseases and attempts to return patients to the highest functional capacity allowed by their pulmonary handicap and overall life status. It is designed for chronic obstructive lung diseases, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, asthma, bronchiectasis, pulmonary fibrosis, sarcoidosis, and more. Our comprehensive program aims to improve overall health by helping patients increase their exercise tolerance and develop healthy behaviors. We achieve these goals through aerobic and strength training exercises, breathing exercises, symptoms management training with activity, and relaxation exercises.
