Overview

The Department of Pulmonary, Critical Care & Sleep Medicine is a state-of-the-art fully-equipped facility committed to transform the scientific findings into effective treatment options required for respiratory diseases, critical medical disorders and sleep disorders.

This super-speciality unit fully integrated with high-end infrastructure, path-breaking technology, globally renowned physicians makes it a preferred choice in terms of managing critical respiratory problems and complex interventions. This unit is complete in all aspects and is one of the few centres in North India to have EBUS (Endo bronchial Ultrasound) facility.

The state-of-the-art fully equipped facility offers most advanced ICUs, Sleep Laboratory with 24 channel sleep system to carry out Polysomonography studies, world-class Bronchoscopy and Thoracoscopy suite, two Pulmonary Function Laboratories promising accurate test results for Spirometry, Diffusion studies and Lung Volumes.

Bronchoscopy Unit

The Bronchoscopy Unit offers the present-day procedures and latest monitoring equipment for bronchoscopy procedure, thereby ensuring maximum accuracy, quality and safety for patients. We have an advanced bronchoscopy suite with Olympus bronchoscopy system for diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. The unit promises highest level of comfort, privacy and convenience throughout the procedure for patients and their families.

EBUS (Endo Bronchial Ultrasound)

The Ultrasonic bronchoscope specifically designed for diagnostic biopsies and staging in the lung to visualize lymph nodes and surrounding vessels in real-time, via ultrasound, while simultaneously viewing the endoscopic image.

Medical Thoracoscopy Unit

This has enabled accurate diagnosis in patients with pleural diseases possible with less chances of infection. It is a minimally invasive approach to visualize and intervene in patients having various types of pleural diseases.

Pulmonary Function Testing (PFT) Lab

The PFT laboratory ensures accuracy of its results in Spirometry, Diffusion studies of lungs and Body Plethysmography. It includes:

  • Spirometry and Diffusion (DLco): The new dimension self contained portable PFT device with maintenance free automatic calibration technology for slow & forced spirometry, and single breath CO Diffusion for DLco with Trueflow ultrasonic flow sensor technology to further perform procedures like FVC, SVC & MVV with pre and post challenge studies with no influence of humidity, barometric pressure, or contamination.
  • Body Box: The Body Box 5500 series is a precise, elegant pulmonary function instrument that ensures the highest quality of respiratory measurement with a quick-release absorber ensuring full fidelity gas analysis, all measurements in a pressure-less breathing circuit, reliable testing and comfort and flexible designing.

Intensive Care Unit

The 150 bedded fully-equipped ICU offers latest monitoring facilities, excellent backup system, highly advanced ventilators including high frequency oscillatory ventilator (HFOV), non-invasive Bi-level ventilators and transport ventilators for critical patients.

ECMO (Extra Corporeal Membrane Oxygenation)

ECMO is an extracorporeal technique of providing cardiac and/or respiratory support to patients whose heart and lungs are so severely diseased or damaged that they can no longer serve their function.

Sleep Lab

The sleep laboratory is the most sophisticated laboratory having additional sensors, hardware and latest software to carry out polysomnography studies and has been designed to provide a comfortable place to sleep in addition to being a scientific facility.
