The Respiratory / Chest facility cares for patients with breathing problems, lung disease, cancer, emphysema, asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and other respiratory disorders. With a range of specialist services including oxygen therapy, biopsies, blood tests, lung function tests, heaf tests, bronchoscopy, spirometry, ECG, x-ray and urine tests. The Respiratory/Chest facility at Swedish Specialist Hospital is fully equipped to assess and treat patients with any respiratory complaint.

Diseases and conditions of the respiratory system fall into two categories:  Viruses such as influenza, bacterial pneumonia and the new enter virus respiratory virus that has been diagnosed in children; and chronic diseases, such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

COPD is the intersection of three related conditions — chronic bronchitis, chronic asthma and emphysema, Chaisson told Live Science. It is a progressive disease that makes it increasingly difficult for sufferers to breath.

Lung cancer is often associated with smoking, but the disease can affect non-smokers as well.
