Respiratory And Sleep Lab

 


 
# The National Institute of Diseases of The Chest and Hospital is recently enriched with a modern Respiratory lab. Here We have the world class equipments for performing Complete Pulmonary Function tests and Sleep study.


# In addition to spirometry, The body Plethysmography (Body box) measures static lung volumes which helps confirming the restrictive ventilatory defect and air trapping or hyperinflation.


# And DLCO (Diffusing capacity of lung for carbon monoxide) helps in early detection and monitoring of ILD.

# In the Sleep Lab, overnight polysomnography has been going on for diagnosing and treating upper airway obstruction (Obstructive sleep apnea).
