Pulmonary medicine is treatment of diseases related to the lungs and breathing.

Pulmonary and Critical Care Consultants, part of Carolinas HealthCare System, treats problems such as asthma, emphysema, lung disease, vascular disease and tuberculosis.

Doctors trained in critical care, as well as pulmonary and sleep medicine, provide pulmonary care at our Carolinas Medical Center. We also offer pulmonary specialty services outside the hospital provided through Charlotte Medical Clinic.

Pulmonary Rehabilitation

If you or a loved one has a chronic condition that causes breathing problems, pulmonary rehabilitation can help give relief. Such conditions might include chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), restrictive pulmonary disease or asthma. Preventive and rehabilitative care can reduce your need for hospitalization, improve your quality of life and even prolong your life.

The pulmonary rehab team works with you to develop a plan that includes:

  • Exercise therapy
  • Health education
  • Breathing retraining
  • Behavior modification services for nutrition and stress management
