Inpatient Pulmonary Services
Our physicians provide inpatient pulmonary consultations at NSMC Salem Hospital and work closely with NSMC hospitalist physicians to evaluate, diagnose and treat pulmonary disorders. Critically ill patients are cared for by our physicians and critical care team in the intensive care unit at NSMC Salem Hospital. This unit provides state-of-the-art care for patients with respiratory failure and multi-system disease. In addition, we also provide services at Spaulding Hospital North Shore in Salem to patients who require inpatient pulmonary rehabilitation and long-term acute care for respiratory failure requiring mechanical ventilation.
Pulmonary TB Clinic
Our team evaluates and treats patients with tuberculosis at our clinic at NSMC Salem Hospital (located on Davenport 4). We work closely with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health to provide these services.
Sleep Disorder Services
NSPG pulmonologists also work closely with the NSMC Sleep Center located on Macomber 5 at NSMC Salem Hospital. The Sleep Center conducts sleep studies using advanced monitoring techniques to detect and diagnose sleep disorders such as sleep apnea. After sleep studies are complete, our team provides comprehensive follow-up care and education for patients with sleep disorders.
Home sleep testing
Home sleep testing is also available for some patients. This tests monitors breathing and oxygen levels and records pauses in your breathing known as Apneas, while you sleep in the comfort of your own home. The information gathered during the test provides our sleep medicine physicians with the information he or she needs to diagnose sleep disorders and prepare you for appropriate treatment
