Respiratory Medicine

We offer respiratory consultation as well as a pulmonary laboratory with exercise testing, and flexible bronchoscopy and polysomnography services.
About
The Respiratory Medicine Service comprises 

  • the general Respiratory Outpatient clinic
  • the inpatient consultation service
  • the Pulmonary  Function Laboratory
  • the Sleep Laboratory
  • flexible bronchoscopy and polysomnography services. 
Lung disease in children is the most common reason for admission to hospital and lung problems complicate many other illnesses in children. 

There are over 2500 visits to the outpatient clinic each year. 

The Pulmonary Function Laboratory is accredited as a category 3A lab by the BC Diagnostic Accreditation Program and performs detailed pulmonary function and exercise testing on children with respiratory symptoms. 

The Sleep Laboratory performs diagnostic overnight sleep studies on children, particularly those with suspected sleep disordered breathing after they are seen in the Sleep Clinic.

Flexible bronchoscopies are performed on inpatients and as day care procedures.
