If you are having trouble breathing, it’s hard to focus on living your best life. Any disease or disorder that limits your lung function is known as a pulmonary (lung) disease. The experienced and caring pulmonologists at Adena are here for you.

    COPD Management

    COPD can be diagnosed through a physical exam and specialized tests, including chest X-rays, pulmonary function tests and CT scans. Chronic bronchitis and emphysema are the most common forms of COPD, because both block the flow of air in and out of the lungs. Early detection and treatment of COPD can help lessen your symptoms and lower the risk of developing other respiratory diseases, lung cancer and heart problems. 

    Common signs of COPD include:

    • Blue lips and/or fingernails
    • Chest tightness
    • Excessive mucus in the mornings
    • Frequent respiratory infections
    • Shortness of breath
    • Wheezing

    Lung Cancer

    If you have concerns about lung cancer, Adena offers lung cancer screenings for at-risk patients using a simple, painless, low dose CT chest scan.

    We also offer educational opportunities to help you greatly reduce your risk for getting  lung cancer, which includes not smoking, eating healthy, exercising regularly and limiting your exposure to environmental factors and second hand smoke.

    Bronchial thermoplasty

    If you suffer from asthma, this procedure may help. During three outpatient sessions,  a physician inserts a bronchoscope through the mouth or nose and into the lungs. Mild heat is applied to remove excessive smooth muscle. Less smooth muscle decreases the narrowing and constriction of airways when exposed to triggers and during an asthma attack.
