Delhi Heart and Lung institute has a broad range of diagnostic and treatment expertise in various kinds of respiratory disorders. The Pulmonary Critical Care Division is unique in New Delhi in providing an 12 bedded Medical ICU dedicated to the specialised care of patients with respiratory failure. It is backed by a Pulmonary stepdown unit of 12 beds for the less sick patients with respiratory disorders not requiring ICU care.

Our in-hospital Pulmonary Consultation Service is respected both for the outstanding quality of care rendered by our physicians, as well as for its responsiveness to both patients and to referring physicians.

The Division's Pulmonary Procedure Suite and Pulmonary Function Laboratory continue to provide high quality care to an increasing volume of patients and supports all state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic procedures necessary to care for patients with advanced pulmonary diseases.

The Division's Cardiopulmonary Sleep and Ventilatory Disorders Laboratory is a newly developed comprehensive program that addresses a wide array of breathing disorders associated with sleep, such as obstructive sleep apnea; apnea and periodic breathing associated with congestive heart failure and neurologic disease; sudden infant death syndrome; nocturnal asthma; and disorders of ventilation associated with obesity, chronic obstructive lung disease, and neuromuscular disorders.

The services include:

  • Diagnostic polysomnography
  • Therapeutic studies to prescribe Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) products
  • Multiple Sleep Latency Testing to objectively assess daytime sleepiness
  • Maintence of Wakefulness Testing to objectively determine ability to stay awake
  • Ongoing patient education programs

The full time consultants specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer. The Center uses a multidisciplinary approach combining interventional pulmonary medicine, radiation and chemotherapy.

The Divisions' future plans include:

  • Comprehensive occupational, physical, and cardiopulmonary rehabilitation programs on an inpatient and outpatient basis for patients with disabling lung disorders.
  • To set up a pre- and post-operative consultation and therapy program for patients undergoing all forms of lung surgery.
  • Evaluation with cardiopulmonary exercise testing to monitor progress

This is equipped with a video bronchoscope and a complete and new generation Pulmonary Function Laboratory. It also includes a lung station for the application of non-invasive ventilation nebuliser and oxygen therapy for patients with chronic respiratory insuffiency. There is a modern and comprehensive sleep laboratory for the evaluation of sleep related breathing and neurological disorders.
