Your lungs move air in and out of your body to ensure that your body’s systems function properly. But if you have a lung disease, breathing can become difficult or painful. Bayfront Health’s interdisciplinary team of pulmonology doctors, cardiologists, interventional radiologists, surgeons and other respiratory specialists can help. We diagnose and treat lung conditions, including asthma, bronchitis, emphysema, lung cancer, pneumonia, pulmonary embolisms, hypertension and sleep apnea.

  • Arterial blood gas sampling and analysis
  • Arterial line catheter insertions
  • Bronchial hygiene therapy
