If you’re seeking diagnosis or care for a pulmonary (lung) illness such as emphysema or asthma, Banner Health wants to help you breathe easier and enjoy a better quality of life.
Our patient-centered approach to lung care includes pulmonologists, respiratory care practitioners, allergists and sleep medicine specialists. For some conditions, our lung experts partner with specialists in heart care, cancer and transplant. Our Banner Children’s pediatric asthma and allergy specialists offer high-quality care for children with lung conditions.
Treatment for lung and breathing conditions is available at Banner Pulmonology Health Clinics and Banner Health Centers, as well as our hospital locations.
The pulmonary team at Banner Desert Medical Center specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of lung-related problems in adults. Our highly qualified team includes:
Our pulmonary services include diagnostic tests to evaluate how well the lungs are performing. These tests may be performed to help diagnose disease, to monitor disease progression or monitor therapeutic intervention over time. Arterial blood gas analysis (ABG) is one such test. It’s most often performed to evaluate respiratory diseases and other conditions that affect the lungs, as well as to evaluate the effectiveness of oxygen therapy.
Banner Desert Medical Center also offers a nationally certified Pulmonary Rehabilitation program. We specialize in the individual medical, emotional and social needs of each patient with chronic lung conditions. Trained staff members will monitor your heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen saturation and medical symptoms while you walk on a treadmill, ride a stationary bike and work on arm strengthening.
