Bronx Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine
Pulmonologists specialize in the diseases of the lungs and bronchial tubes, which often involves evaluation of the heart and the upper respiratory tract (nose, pharynx, and throat). Pulmonologists treat sleep disorders as well. Our Bronx pulmonologists have internal medicine backgrounds with specialized training to treat both pulmonary and sleep disorders.
Conditions treated by pulmonologists include cystic fibrosis, and obstructive sleep apnea, among others.
Our Bronx pulmonologists at Boulevard Medical Healthcare offer a number of tests on site. These tests include:
Peak Flow Testing – a test for determining the level of airflow to the lungs. This helps those with asthma by detecting airway narrowing before symptoms present themselves. This lets doctors instruct patients on how to adjust their medications in order to prevent further asthma attacks.
Sleep Testing – If your doctor suspects that you are experiencing obstructive sleep apnea, they will order you to undergo sleep testing. This is an overnight test that allows doctors to observe your sleep patterns, taking into account both quality and quantity of your sleep. A better night’s sleep can be the key to solving your constant fatigue and inability to function. It can also help prevent chronic diseases such as high blood pressure and obesity.
