Procedures and methods in pulmonology

  • Spirometry
  • Body plethysmography
  • Measurement of the diffusing capacity and compliance
  • Ergospirometry
  • Pulmonary endoscopy and invasive procedures (flexible and rigid bronchoscopy with sampling, thoracoscopy with sampling, adhesiolysis, chemical pleurodesis)
  • Interventional bronchology: endobronchial resp. endotracheal laser therapy, argon beamer therapy, brachytherapy
