Lung disease, which includes a variety of respiratory disorders such as asthma, pneumonia, tuberculosis, and lung cancer, is the third leading cause of death in the U.S., and the leading cause of death for infants.
Chronic lung disease affects more than 35 million Americans, and kills nearly 400,000 Americans every year. It can strike anyone regardless of age, gender, or income, but it affects a disproportionate share of minority populations.
Using state-of-the-art technology—and the latest knowledge gained from the groundbreaking research at the University of Miami School of Medicine—pulmonary specialists at University of Miami Hospital provide expert diagnosis and treatment of all types of lung disease.
University of Miami Hospital’s pulmonary services include:
- Ventilator Services
