Outpatient Pulmonary Services
Outpatient pulmonary services are available to those suffering from pulmonary conditions. With a physician referral, an appointment can be scheduled at Manchester Memorial Hospital and Rockville General Hospital to be checked out by our pulmonary specialists. During your appointment, our expert staff will perform a series of tests to help determine the best care plan to meet your individual needs. These tests include:
Pulmonary Function Testing
A pulmonary function test reveals how effectively the lungs are able to distribute oxygen to the rest of the body. The results of this test are used to diagnose associated pulmonary conditions and also to monitor whether a patient is responding to treatment. ECHN’s pulmonary test laboratory is located at Manchester Memorial Hospital.
Oxygen Saturation Studies
An oxygen saturation study measures the amount of oxygen entering the bloodstream. This study includes the pulse oximeter and an Arterial Blood Gas test (ABG Test), which measures the amount of oxygen and carbon dioxide levels in the blood that can be indicative of a respiratory condition. Both of these tests can be performed at Manchester Memorial Hospital and Rockville General Hospital.
