Respiratory Consultations

Assessment of all respiratory conditions and undifferentiated symptoms (i.e. shortness of breath and cough). Our physicians have particular interests in respiratory physiology, asthma, chronic obstructive lung disease, bronchiectasis, pulmonary arterial hypertension, assessment of lung nodules and pulmonary malignancies.

Sleep Diagnostics

External referral for overnight oximetry a type 4 sleep study to evaluate for severe obstructive sleep apnoea. Patients complete an extensive questionnaire prior to this study. We ensure that current guidelines for the assessment of sleep conditions are adhered to (see FAQ related to sleep studies and AASM guidelines for portable sleep studies). Our physicians can provide rapid assessment and referral for an appropriate type of sleep study in both the public (Royal Melbourne Hospital and Western Hospital) and private (Western Private Hospital and Epworth Hospital) systems.

Respiratory Diagnostics

Comprehensive pulmonary function testing including spirometry, gas transfer, lung volumes, bronchoprovocation testing and 6 minute walk tests. Our respiratory laboratory maintains the highest standards to provide an accurate assessment of lung function. We also have close relationships with tertiary respiratory laboratories and can organise arterial blood gas measurements, cardiopulmonary exercise testing (VO2 max test) and high altitude simulation tests (HAST).
