Pulmonary

Our specialized pulmonary services address disorders of the lungs, airway and breathing functions. From diagnosis to treatment to recovery, our pulmonary specialists employ today’s most trusted diagnostic techniques to determine the most effective mode of treatment.

Respiratory Services

IRMC offers a wide variety of pulmonary function testing such as methacholine challenges to diagnose asthma. In addition, our Pulmonary Services Department conducts an array of bronchoscopy procedures, including EBUS (endobronchial ultrasound) and navigational bronchoscopy, state- of-the-art tests used to diagnose lung cancer in its earliest stages.

Lung Cancer Detection

A lung cancer screening using a low-dose CT scan is the first step in knowing your risk of developing lung cancer. With this screening, other non-cancerous nodes can also be found.

Treatment

Depending on the diagnosis, Indian River Medical Center has the staff and technology to help treat pulmonary diseases, from common respiratory disorders to advanced lung cancer. And because Indian River County has a high incidence of lung cancer cases, IRMC is committed to providing a full array of treatment options.

Take our online assessment to find out if you’re at risk.
