Pulmonary Medicine - SBH Health System

Pulmonary Medicine

The Bronx has the city’s highest incidence of asthma and COPD, as well as smoking-related lung conditions. To address this need, The Department of Pulmonary Medicine provides state-of-the-art diagnostic, management and critical care services for a broad range of pulmonary diseases, including sleep-related breathing problems, pulmonary infections and lung disorders caused by other diseases.

In 2015, we integrated the department with critical care to better serve the management of conditions that are highly prevalent in our population. This has allowed us to structure our pulmonary critical care services around the needs of our patients, providing comprehensive care that will assist with early recovery, avoid hospital re-admissions and improve their quality of life. This means rendering timely critical care, offering self-directed treatment plans for conditions like asthma, and educating patients on how they can better manage and control their conditions so they can avoid having to come to the emergency department in the middle of the night.
