If you are suffering from shortness of breath, chest pains, sleep problems, or a persistent or troublesome cough, you may be referred to our Pulmonary Clinic by your Johns Hopkins Aramco Healthcare (JHAH) Primary Care physician. Our pulmonology experts will carry out thorough checks to rule out any lung disorders, or a work-related lung disease. If you need treatment, you can be confident that our specialists will be there every step of the way, with state-of-the-art diagnostic evaluations and a wide range of outpatient treatments.
Managing asthma is not always as simple as using an inhaler. Our skilled Asthma Clinic doctors, nurses and support staff understand the challenges that this condition can present. We offer a full array of treatments, including cutting-edge therapies, such as Xolair. But treatment is just one aspect of care – we also provide education and support, so that you can learn how to better manage your asthma by yourself.
If you have been diagnosed with interstitial lung disease, we provide a diagnostic work-up to identify the cause. We will then recommend treatment options, depending on the cause, and carefully monitor disease activity and any treatment side-effects.
Should you be worried about your lung health, you will want information and support as quickly as possible. Our specialists are experts in the evaluation and treatment of nodules (small masses of tissue in the lung) caused by lung cancer, esophageal cancer, mesothelioma, thymoma, tracheal tumors and other diseases.
Left untreated, pulmonary hypertension (high blood pressure in the lungs) can have serious consequences. The first step to successful treatment is an expert diagnosis. At our Pulmonary Hypertension Clinic, we will thoroughly evaluate your overall lung health and your symptoms. We begin with a range of non-invasive tests, including chest X-rays, pulmonary function tests, echocardiograms, sleep studies, CT scanning/angiograms, ventilation/perfusion scanning and comprehensive blood testing.
