The Pulmonary Services department is staffed by two licensed respiratory therapists. Our certified pulmonary rehab program is a medically-supervised program of exercise and education for people with chronic lung disease. We offer pulmonary function testing (PFT), which are a group of tests that diagnose certain types of lung disease, such as asthma and emphysema. In addition, we offer sleep studies for diagnosing and treating sleep-related disorders. A pulmonologist from Cedar Valley of Waterloo comes to Palmer Lutheran Health Center to interpret the tests and to see patients at Palmer regarding results and follow-up.
