Medical Subspecialties - Respiratory Medicine
The Northern Beaches Hospital Respiratory Medicine service provides public and private patients with inpatient care for all respiratory medical conditions, including lung function testing and bronchoscopy.
Outpatients may access:
- the Mona Vale Hospital Chest Clinic for the investigation and treatment of tuberculosis and related conditions
- the Northern Beaches Hospital Lung Cancer Clinic and bronchoscopy services.
The Respiratory Department also runs the Lung Function Laboratory at the Northern Beaches Hospital; a leading testing facility that can accurately measure lung function at rest. It is expected to offer sophisticated exercise testing in future. Bronchoscopy equipment is used to examine the insides of patients' lungs whilst they are anaesthetised. These tests are helpful in diagnosing lung cancers and infections, among other things.
