About Us:

The Division of Pulmonary Medicine has expertise with the breath of life in all its aspects: control of breathing; sleep disorders; obstruction to airflow in the common diseases of upper and lower airways such as croup, bronchiolitis, asthma, cystic fibrosis, primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD), bronchopulmonary dysplasia; restrictive lung, congenital anomalies, inhalation injury and secondary effects of non-pulmonary system disorders.

Diagnoses may not be immediately apparent, and an efficient approach to the differential consideration of causation with procedures such as pulmonary function testing, bronchoprovocation, exercise testing, various imaging methods, in vitro evaluation of immune competence, allergic sensitization, and flexible fiberoptic videobronchoscopy may used for evaluation.

We offer Advanced Diagnostic Testing for Lung Disease to answer specific questions about medical conditions and provide more information for individuals who experience ongoing symptoms without a definitive diagnosis. Samples and data are held at Stanford for analysis. Available testing through our Innovative Diagnostic clinic includes blood or urine biomarker, blood cell isolation, beta sweat testing, nasal potential difference, nasal brushing for human nasal epithelial cells, high speed video microscopy (HSVM), immunofluoscence staining, nasal nitric oxide measurement, Lung Clearance Index, and fractional exhaled nitric oxide testing.
