We also maintain the state’s only certified adult cystic fibrosis (CF) center. Working in coordination with colleagues in the pediatric CF program, we offer comprehensive care for this chronic, genetic disease.
UAMS’ participation in research to find new treatments ensures that you have the best care available when you choose to use our services. Our caring, compassionate doctors have the latest diagnostic tools for identifying lung and respiratory problems, including:
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
- Chronic bronchitis
- Chronic lung disease
- Pulmonary embolism
- Pulmonary fibrosis
- Pulmonary nodules
- Pulmonary emphysema
We also treat patients who are experiencing shortness of breath, chronic cough, pneumonia and sleep disorders such as sleep apnea. Sleep deprivation can interfere with your quality of life, so we can help if you have symptoms such as snoring or excessive daytime sleepiness.
Critical care expertise extends to inpatient care and critical care consultations of seriously ill patients.
Our resources for testing pulmonary function using state-of-the-art equipment include a complete Pulmonary Function Laboratory. There, full pulmonary function tests, metabolic studies and other assessments can detect the symptoms of lung disease and respiratory problems.
