      Assessment, Testing, Treatment

      As pulmonary and critical care specialists, Redwood Pulmonary frequently encounters lung infections in both office and hospital settings. When caring for patients with lung infections, we conduct a thorough history and examination, complemented by additional data such as arterial blood gases, laboratory tests, cultures, and X-rays. Based on this comprehensive assessment, we provide recommendations and closely monitor patients until their illness resolves.

      Tests commonly ordered in the evaluation and management of lung infections include:

      • Oxygen saturation analysis under various conditions
      • Arterial blood gas analysis
      • Sputum gram stain and culture
      • X-rays and CT scans
      • Bronchoscopy

      We prioritize accurate diagnosis, tailored treatment plans, and ongoing monitoring to ensure optimal outcomes and the resolution of the infection.
