A Breath of Hope for Lung Disease Patients

Breathing is the body’s way of oxygenating the blood. Normally, lungs take in oxygen when you inhale fresh air and expel carbon dioxide when you exhale. In patients with lung problems, movement of air into and out of the lungs is limited, making breathing difficult.

The pulmonary team at Deborah Heart and Lung Center are experts in all facets of chronic respiratory conditions and disease and have a wide-range of the latest pulmonary diagnostic tools and treatment options to manage even the most severe lung conditions.


At Deborah, we routinely treat patients affected by these common lung diseases:

  • Asbestosis
  • Asthma
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
  • Pulmonary fibrosis
  • Pulmonary hypertension
  • Sarcoidosis
