Gwinnett Pulmonary offers a variety of services related to helping any lung diseases or issues. The first service offered is the Pulmonary Function test. Pulmonary function tests (PFTs) measure how well your lungs take in and exhale air, and how efficiently they transfer oxygen into the blood. Spirometry measures how well the lungs exhale (breathe out). Lung volume measures how well the lungs inhale (breathe in). Testing the diffusion capacity of carbon monoxide (DLCO) shows how efficiently the lungs transfer oxygen from the air into the bloodstream.
Another service offered by Gwinnett Pulmonary is Pulse Oximetry. A pulse oximeter is a medical device that indirectly measures the oxygen saturation of a patient’s blood (as opposed to measuring oxygen saturation directly through a blood sample) and changes in blood volume in the skin, producing a photoplethysmograph. It is often attached to a medical monitor so staff can see a patient’s oxygenation at all times. For Medicare patients needing to re-qualify for their home oxygen and to evaluate a patient’s oxygen levels during exercise, exercise pulse oximetry is included as well.
Injections and vaccines are also offered at Gwinnett Pulmonary including XOLAIR which is used to treat patients with extreme asthma as well as the pneumonia and flu vaccines.
For those who suffer from chronic lung conditions or lung problems, Pulmonary Rehabilitations are offered as well. This program includes exercise training, health education, and breathing techniques.
Lastly, Gwinnett Pulmonary offers Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing. This is a non-invasive and objective method of evaluating both cardiac and pulmonary function. It allows a very accurate assessment of possible cardiac failure, in a quantified fashion.
All procedures listed can be done in each of our 5 offices in Gwinnett County, northeast of the Atlanta metropolitan area. For any questions regarding the services offered, contact us today by calling any of our 5 locations.
