Visit to a pulmonary specialist

Respiratory medicine is the specialty that deals with diagnostics and treatment of respiratory and lung diseases.

Performed investigations:

  • Spirometry (SPG) – volume and speed of inhaled and exhaled air;
  • Bronchodilator test (BDT) – evaluation of the spastic component of obstruction;
  • impulse-oscillometry system (IOS) test – measurement of air flow-resistance in different parts of the respiratory tract;
  • skin prick tests – to investigate fast type allergy;
  • Computed tomography;
  • X-ray.

Visits to a pulmonary specialist are possible with a referral letter from a family doctor or a medical specialist; paid visits do not require a referral letter.

Visits are held in the Lasnamäe Medicum.
