PULMONARY DIAGNOSTIC TESTING

Helping You Stay Healthy

Randolph Pulmonary & Sleep Clinic has the only Pulmonologist located in Randolph County, North Carolina. 
We are trained to evaluate and treat multiple lung related issues.

 

PULMONARY DISEASES WE TREAT

At Randolph Pulmonary & Sleep Clinic we treat a wide variety of pulmonary disease. Below is a list of the most common disease we treat.

COPD

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a chronic inflammatory lung disease that causes obstructed airflow from the lungs.

ASTHMA

Asthma is a chronic, or long-term, condition that intermittently inflames and narrows the airways in the lungs.

EMPHYSEMA

A type of COPD involving damage to the air sacs (alveoli) in the lungs, so your body does not get the oxygen it needs. May experience chronic cough and trouble breathing during exercise. Commonly caused by smoking.

PULMONARY HYPERTENSION

A type of high blood pressure that affects arteries in the lungs and in the heart.

SARCOIDOSIS

Inflammatory disease that affects multiple organs in the body, but mostly the lungs and lymph glands.

PNEUMONIA

Infection that inflames air sacs in one or both lungs, which may fill with fluid.

LUNG CANCER

A cancer that begins in the lungs and most often occurs in people who smoke.

LUNG NODULES

A small round or oval-shaped growth in the lung.

PULMONARY FIBROSIS

A lung disease that occurs when lung tissue becomes damaged and scarred. This thickened, stiff tissue makes it more difficult for your lungs to work properly.

IN-OFFICE TESTING

PULMONARY FUNCTION TESTING

Pulmonary function tests (PFTs) are noninvasive tests that show how well the lungs are working. The tests measure lung volume, capacity, rates of flow, and gas exchange. This information can help your healthcare provider diagnose and decide the treatment of certain lung disorders.

Normal values for PFTs vary from person to person. The amount of air inhaled and exhaled in your test results are compared to the average for someone of the same age, height, sex, and race. Results are also compared to any of your previous test results. If you have abnormal PFT measurements or if your results have changed, you may need other tests.

SPIROMETRY

Through a holistic approach to medicine, I try viewing each patient as a whole rather than a single symptom to be treated. This is just one of many procedures I perform when coming up with any diagnosis. Your health deserves proper care and attention and I’m able to provide. Please contact me today to schedule an appointment.

6 MINUTE WALK TEST

It is used as a simple measure of aerobic exercise capacity. The results of this test may or may not lead your doctor to do more sophisticated measures of your heart and lung function

LARYNGOSCOPY

Laryngoscopy is a procedure used to look at the larynx (voice box), including the vocal cords, as well as nearby structures like the back of the throat.

This test can be used to look for the causes of symptoms in the throat or voice box (such as trouble swallowing or breathing, voice changes, bad breath, or a cough or throat pain that won’t go away).

X-Ray

X-RAYS & ULTRASOUNDS

Randolph Pulmonary has their own on-site X-ray and ultrasound machines to make treatment more cost effective for our patients.
