Pneumology

Following a referral, the doctor's evaluation confirms the diagnostic and determines the proper treatments, thanks to:

  • Pulmonary function tests
  • Medical imaging
  • Blood samples
  • Allergy cutaneous tests
  • Bronchoscopy or other relevant tests (see information booklet)

According to the needs of the patient, the pneumology nurse will meet the patient and his/her family, in order to reinforce their understanding of disease and treatment prescribed by the Pneumologist.

If the patient requires the care of a specialist, the Pneumologist provides a follow-up in conjunction with the pneumology nurse. Otherwise, the patient is sent back to the family physician or paediatrician with the Pneumologist's written recommendations.
