Adult outpatient clinic
Symptoms of adult asthma, inflammatory diseases of the respiratory tract, conditions with increased production of airway secretions, cough, wheezing, dyspnoea, shortness of breath, reflux, uncertain feeeling of chest discomfort are symptoms that require consultation with the specialist pulmonologist. At our general pulmonary practice, Dr Zsolt Molnár, a specialist in pulmonology and oncology, examines and treats our patients. Dr Molnár also has specialized knowledge in treating patients with oncological (cancerous) pulmonary diseases.
In which cases should you ask for a general pulmonary examination?
On an outpatient basis, in order to investigate the following symptoms:
- condition with increased airway secretions,
- chronic recurrent respiratory inflammation,
- whooping cough (wet cough),
- COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease),
- breathing difficulties,
- complaints related to exertional dyspnoea (e.g. stair climbing, cycling, running, playing football),
- pulmonary fibrosis (IPF/ILD),
- complaints of uncertain chest discomfort.
In which cases should you attend a private oncology pulmonary consultation?
- in the investigation phase of a suspected oncological tumour process, when a second or third opinion is needed to confirm the diagnosis,
- if there is an ongoing oncological treatment in progress, but the medicine for the treatment is running out and it would take a long time to get the prescription; in these confirmed diseases, it is possible to prescribe medication in our outpatient clinic, in accordance with the hospital treatment, after the necessary consultation, by following the medical protocols of the examined patient,
- if a consultation with a specialist is necessary to review the previous findings,
- or a patient examination may be required,
- or an appointment to discuss further medical check-up is due.
Adult asthma may develop at any age
Characteristics/symptoms: attacks of shortness of breath, wheezing, expiratory difficulty (dyspnoea), coughing episodes, attacks of coughing, chest tightness.
Treatment of asthma
Asthma can usually be associated with dyspnoea (hampered respiration), attacks of shortness of breath, coughing, sputum production, wheezing, expiratory difficulty, wheezing (breathing noisily) at night and anterior central chest tightness.
Caused by chronic inflammation of the lower airways, the degree of bronchial narrowing may show a changing, high variability, even within a day.
Airway flow resistance in asthma can change spontaneously in any direction.
In asthma, appropriate maintenance treatment can permanently eliminate the bronchoconstriction (bronchial narrowing) which is present everywhere in the lungs.
When the disease is uncontrolled, symptoms are typically the worst at night or early in the morning, but acute worsening of symptoms at any time of day may also be common. Asthma cannot be cured, but with the help of a specialist it can be completely controlled, symptoms can be eliminated and the patient can be rendered symptom-free.
Many patients, suffering from asthma, are allergic, hypersensitive to various allergens that they may have inhaled or otherwise ingested.
In our clinic, our specialist deals with the treatment of airway inflammations, including symptomatic therapy.
He also treats conditions with increased production of secretion in the airways (whooping cough) – whatever is the origin and the underlying disease.
In our oncology outpatient clinic examination/consultation, physical examination of the patient, consideration of his/her treatment, recommendation of imaging (radiological) examinations as part of their follow-up process can be carried out.
