The department has the following equipment and facilities:
- oxygen concentrator. It is used to treat the patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (long-term oxygen therapy);
- pulse oximeters;
- nebulizer therapy room;
- room for the collection of sputum samples.
The specialists of the department perform fiberoptic bronchoscopy, computed tomography, x-ray examinations, spirography with function tests. There is the “Asthma School” and the “COPD school”, where the patients may learn more about the diseases, treatment options, medications and side-effects of medications. They are also taught to properly use inhalers and peak flow meters. Such activities proved to be effective, because fewer patients with asthma and COPDs need inpatient care and patients those who still need inpatient care sty in hospital for a shorter period of time.
