Bronchoscopy: A procedure to look directly at the airways in the lungs through a thin, lighted tube (bronchoscope).
Sleep Study: Also known as a polysomnogram, a sleep study involves a number of tests conducted at the same time during sleep to measure specific sleep characteristics and help diagnose sleep disorders.
Thoracentesis: A procedure where a needle is inserted into the pleural space between the lungs and chest wall to remove excess fluid in order to help you breathe easier.
Bronchodilators: Relaxes the muscles around the airways.
Nebulizers: The use of compressed air to administer liquids in the form of a fine mist to the airways, are commonly used to treat patients with severe asthma or COPD.
