Clinical Services

Yale Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine is nationally and internationally recognized for its advanced clinical programs. Faculty members are board certified in internal medicine, pulmonary medicine, critical care, and sleep medicine. We also have physicians who specialize in interventional pulmonary medicine. Members work closely with physicians in cardiothoracic surgery, diagnostic radiology and pathology to provide comprehensive care. Patients are seen in the Winchester Chest Clinic (see Programs & Centers), adjacent to a state-of-the-art Pulmonary Function Laboratory. Programs in airway disease, interstitial lung disease, pulmonary hypertension, lung cancer and sleep disorders are available.

Yale Sleep Medicine (see Programs & Centers) offers outpatient sleeps studies in New Haven, Guilford and Norwich. Physicians manage complicated lung problems such as pulmonary vasculitides, lung cancer, refractory asthma, and advanced interstitial lung diseases. Difficult cases are discussed and managed through interdisciplinary weekly conferences, including physicians specializing in cardiothoracic surgery, radiology, pathology, radiation therapy, and occupational medicine.
