Shelbyville Lung Function Testing
Learn How to Treat Lung Health Concerns
While smoking tobacco is the most prominent cause of lung disease, there
are many potential contributors that can cause COPD and other lung diseases.
Major Health Partners in Shelbyville offers lung function testing to help
patients learn more about their health and take steps toward treatment
of pulmonary illnesses. Our Pulmonology Department uses state-of-the-art
equipment to diagnose lung diseases and create treatment plans. With our
award-winning physicians available to help you understand your lung health,
we can help you get back to breathing well again.
What is COPD?
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a lung disease where the
lungs are unable to breathe in or out fully due to a breakdown of lung
tissue. This gives patients a virtually constant feeling of a shortness
of breath. The primary cause for COPD is smoking, but other causes can
include air pollution and even poor ventilation. As smoke and pollutants
enter the airways, blood vessels can constrict and cause complications
such as high blood pressure.
At Major Health Partners, we help people throughout Shelby, Rush, and Decatur
Counties to treat their pulmonary illnesses and manage the life changes
involved. Speak with your doctor about scheduling an appointment with
our Pulmonology department.
