Respiratory Medicine is focused on the diagnosis and treatment of respiratory system disorders. Subspecialties include: Interstitial lung disease, Interventional pulmonology (treating airway disorders, lung cancer and pleural diseases), Obstructive airway disorders (Asthma, COPD), Suppurative Lung disorders (Bronchiectasis) etc. These conditions need specialized respiratory care. The group of physicians are involved in specialty clinics in these disorders have considerable expertise in managing these disorders.
Specialized procedures such as endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS), tunnelled pleural catheter insertion, endobronchial debulking and lung cryobiopsy can be coordinated through this centre. A rapid access clinic for complex respiratory conditions including thoracic malignancy will be offered.
Sleep medicine is a medical specialty devoted to the diagnosis and therapy of sleep disturbances and disorders. These conditions need specialized care. The group of physicians involved in specialty clinics in these disorders have considerable expertise in diagnose and manage the full breadth of sleep disorders including obstructive sleep apnea.
We can organise diagnostic tests including in-lab sleep studies, home based sleep studies, CPAP/BiPAP titration studies, Multiple Sleep Latency Tests (MSLT) and Maintenance of Wakefulness Tests (MWT).
General Physicians are highly trained specialists who provide a range of non-surgical health care to adult patients. They care for difficult, serious or unusual medical problems and continue to see the patient until these problems have resolved or stabilised. Much of their work takes place with hospitalised patients and most general physicians also see patients in their consulting rooms.
Their broad range of expertise differentiates General Physicians from other specialists who limit their medical practice to problems involving only one body system or to a special area of medical knowledge.
Aged care physicians, also called geriatricians, are medical doctors who specializes in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease and disability in older adults. Geriatricians provide comprehensive medical care for people later in life.
Geriatricians are concerned with health problems that frequently affect older adults, such as pain, falls, memory loss, incontinence (involuntary loss of urine), and medication side effects. Another important aspect of geriatric medicine is evaluating an elderly patient's ability to care for him- or herself (e.g., prepare and eat meals, bathe, dress). Other medical conditions that geriatricians may treat include Alzheimer's disease, Dementia Parkinson's disease etc.
