The Respiratory Laboratory is a rapidly growing department providing an efficient respiratory testing service to inpatients, outpatients, referrals from General Practice and from other hospitals. The Laboratory possesses state-of-the-art equipment with procedures being continually updated to reflect the latest in testing standards.
The Laboratory offers standard and specialised testing for indications such as:
- Evaluation and follow-up of respiratory symptoms and disease
- Assessing impairement and/or disability
- Quantifying the severity of known lung disease
- Assessing the potential effects or response to environmental or occupational exposure
- Evaluation of sleep disordered breathing
Our sleep study service is conducted through the Respiratory Department.
Introduced as a limited service in 2007, the department can now provide full diagnostic testing to evaluate respiratory sleep disorders such as obstructive sleep apnoea and has a treatment initiation/follow up service in place to assist in the treatment of these disorders. All studies are conducted within the hospital (on an inpatient basis) and are non-invasive.
Referrals are accepted from Respiratory / Sleep Consultants only, these referrals are prioritised and placed on a waiting list.
