So You Can Breathe Easier
Breath is central to life, but we often take it for granted until a health problem makes breathing difficult. The pulmonology team at AdventHealth Ottawa (formerly Ransom Memorial Health) offers diagnosis, treatment and continuing care for problems and conditions of the lungs and respiratory system — all to help you breathe and live as fully and comfortably as possible.
Conditions We Treat
- Sleep Disorders
Sleep disorders can do more than interfere with your rest. For instance, sleep apnea — when breathing is interrupted during sleep — can increase your risk for serious health problems such as heart attack and stroke. Prompt diagnosis and effective treatment can reduce those risks and help you sleep peacefully through the night.
Asthma affects your airways, making them inflamed and swollen. It’s most common in children but can affect you at any age, causing wheezing, coughing, chest tightening and trouble breathing. Asthma can be serious and chronic — but the good news is that it can be treated and managed effectively. Our team is highly experienced in treating asthma at every age and stage, and will work with you and your primary care physician to create a treatment plan and monitor your progress.
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
COPD includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema, and requires continued treatment and management. COPD can range from mild to severe, with a range of symptoms like coughing, mucus, shortness of breath and wheezing. Our team can help you manage symptoms so you can live a full and active life.
- Other Respiratory Problems
Whatever your condition and needs, we can diagnose, treat and manage your symptoms and progress — to keep you enjoying the life you love.
