Respiratory

The key symptoms in Respiratory Disease are cough, shortness of breath, wheeze and chest pain or discomfort. The presence of any of these symptoms over a period of time requires medical assessment – with chest pain often warranting urgent assessment in an emergency department.

Allergic Respiratory Disorders such as asthma and hay fever, along with cigarette smoking-related lung problems (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and lung cancer are very prevalent in our region. There are, in addition, a range of other diagnoses which are frequently encountered. These range from chronic lung infections, to inflammatory reactions in the lung, to asbestos-related respiratory problems. Although the diagnosis is sometimes immediately apparent, often sophisticated testing is required to help define a diagnosis before appropriate advice about treatment can be provided.

Manse Medical supports healthcare providers to improve the level of care of people with respiratory disease in our region, by firstly helping to make that testing readily available and secondly by providing a professional opinion on diagnosis and treatment options when required.

Manse Medical offers a range of Lung Function Tests that measure the function of the lungs.  Testing includes Spirometry, DLCO Gas Transfer, Lung Volumes, Bronchial Provocation Tests, Cardiopulmonary Tests, 6 Minute Walk Tests, MIPS/MEPS and SNIP.

  • monitor the lung function of certain conditions

  • assess pre-operative risk
