Pulmonology at Mayo Clinic Health System is dedicated to understanding, diagnosing, and treating diseases of the lung. Providers in this department see patients with diseases and disorders of the lung, which include COPD, asthma, restrictive lung disease, sarcoidosis, bronchiectasis and lung cancer, as well as sleep apnea.
Patients may be scheduled for further diagnostic testing after an appointment. We typically test patients with pulmonary function testing (PFT), overnight sleep oximetry, polysomnogram (PSG), and radiology exams, such as chest X-ray and chest CT.
Appointments are offered via facility-to-facility video visits, which reduce the need to travel far and enable patients to receive care close to home.
For a facility-to-facility video visit, patients arrive to the clinic and a nurse connects them with the specialist via video. The innovative technology uses a Bluetooth stethoscope, a USB otoscope and high definition cameras that can move and zoom in for a high-quality physical exam and personal conversation with the specialist.
