Pulmonary Care

At UPMC Passavant, we have pulmonary specialists and talented respiratory therapists who can help you breathe easy by treating diseases like asthma, bronchitis, and emphysema. In fact, we treat thousands of people for acute and chronic respiratory conditions each year.

Our pulmonary physicians and respiratory therapists can diagnose and treat conditions including:

  • Asthma
  • Chronic bronchitis
  • Pneumonia
  • Emphysema
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
  • Lung cancer

 

Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program

This program helps people who have experienced pulmonary problems like emphysema or chronic obstructive lung disease improve their quality of life. The program features breathing re-training, education classes, and aerobic or light weight training in our exercise testing facility.

 

Center for Sleep Disordered Breathing

Heavy snoring, morning headaches, and daytime fatigue may be symptoms of sleep-related breathing disorders like sleep apnea — a disorder that causes a person to stop breathing for short periods of time during sleep. Specialists at this center can help you with this problem and others.
