Respiratory

The specialty of respiratory medicine involves care for patients with a broad range of acute and chronic lung conditions.  St James’s is the national centre for TB and the leading Lung Cancer hospital in Ireland.  The department provides comprehensive acute and ambulatory services for patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) particularly via the Respiratory Assessment Unit (RAU) which aims to provide “hospital-at-home” care in the community.  Services are provided for patients with the full range of respiratory diseases, including Interstitial Lung Disease, Sarcoidosis, Bronchiectasis, Respiratory Sleep Disorders and many other conditions.  Lung function testing and sleep studies are carried out by the Respiratory Laboratory, and care for acutely-ill respiratory patients, particularly those requiring non-invasive ventilation (NIV) is provided on John Houston Ward.
