The department provides intensive care for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, bronchial asthma,

interstitial lung disease, pulmonary vascular disease, pulmonary infection, tuberculosis, lung cancer, and specialized treatment for respiratory organs such as endoscopic bronchial intervention.

The Department of Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine operates outpatients and inpatients units and a pulmonary test lab (providing pulmonary function tests, respiratory rehabilitation, bronchial tests). The department also operates a separate Tuberculosis Ward within its inpatient unit, and an Asthma Clinic, a Pumonary Hypertension Clinic, an Interstitial Lung Disease Clinic and a Sleep Apnea Clinic within the outpatient unit.

Education of interns and residents is another focus of the department. It holds regular X-ray conferences, chest conferences, research meetings, and journal reviews, and has the medical ICU open to the public for observation of the newest treatment methods applied to patients. It also hosts annual mechanical ventilation workshops and pulmonology conferences, and triennial pulmonary function test workshops.

The department has an intensive care specialist dedicated to ICU and is actively involved in the research of new treatment methods for respiratory failure, such as nitric oxide, heliox, and liquid ventilation. The department is also proactive in the use of methods that include laser surgery on tumors that use bronchial endoscopy and bronchial interventions such as balloon treatment and bronchial stent insertion in conjunction with the Department of Radiology.

Medical Specialities

Take a look at the treatment of major diseases in your department.

Lung Cancer

AMC Lung Cancer Center is different. We allow patients to receive fast diagnosis and best medical services as quickly as possible. We draw up treatment plans and schedules to allow patients to get diagnosis and medical care as soon as possible through specialists’ consultations and coordinators’ counseling service.

Sleep Apnea

It happens due to the narrowed airway, causing a drop in breathing capacity and hypoxia. Subsequent sleep fragmentation, hypoxia, and sleep architecture disturb the nervous system, leading to cardiovascular complications and a decline in cognitive functions
