North Shore Lung Function Laboratory
We are pleased to announce the establishment of a new state-of-the-art Lung Function Laboratory Service at North Shore Private Hospital to facilitate the investigation of your patients.
General respiratory complaints and undifferentiated shortness of breath are a major issue in primary care and specialist practice. Trying to ascertain the cause of these can be a diagnostic dilemma. Complex lung function can greatly help in this process and provides considerably more information than spirometry alone. In addition, lung function provides an important way of monitoring general respiratory diseases, making an assessment in a pre-operative setting, or investigating the presence of abnormal office-based spirometry.
We are now able to offer a direct referral system for lung function at this new laboratory. This will allow more rapid diagnosis and treatment for outpatients in the area, and inpatients at North Shore Private Hospital. It is conveniently co-located with North Shore Respiratory and Sleep (NSRS) which is happy to provide a consultation service for your patients if requested (valid medicare referral required).
We are confident that this development will enhance our ability to serve this clinical need with respect to the investigation and management of patients with Lung disorders and/or complaints of shortness of breath.
In order for Health Care Professionals to take advantage of this service please print the downloadable Lung Function Referral Form from the link on this page fax it to us on 02 9966 4688, or contact us directly on 9966 4600.
