The Winchester Center for Lung Disease (WCLD) opened in March 2021 at the North Haven Medical Center to improve access to exceptional care for more people with lung conditions. The expanded facilities at the Winchester Center have allowed expansion of subspecialized pulmonary care as well as access to a wide array of multidisciplinary services, more than what was possible at the original Winchester Chest Clinic (WCC) on Yale New Haven Hospital’s York Street Campus.

The Yale Interventional Pulmonary team in Yale’s Section of Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine (Yale-PCCSM) employs advanced technologies to diagnose and treat diseases in the chest, such as lung nodules and masses, lymph node enlargement, complex airways, and pleural effusions. The program, led by Kyle Bramley, MD, assistant professor of medicine (pulmonary), was one of the first interventional pulmonology programs in Connecticut when it was established in 2009. Today it remains the largest interventional pulmonary service in the state.

Older adults who survive a critical illness, such as sepsis or respiratory failure, often have symptoms that restrict activities, but little is known about how these symptoms change over time or compare with those prior to illness, and whether these changes differ among vulnerable subgroups. In a new study, Yale researchers evaluated changes in restricting symptoms among adults aged 70 or older during the six months after discharge from the ICU or intensive care unit.

Scientists Apply High-resolution, Single-cell Profiling to Understand Immune Response in Severe COVID-19
A new study by Yale researchers provides a single-cell resolution profile of the inflammatory severe COVID-19 disease, and the loss of coordination between the innate and adaptive immune response. This loss of coordination has the potential to amplify a person’s immune response to COVID-19, delaying viral clearance.
