Sleep Consultation

Specialist Consultation

Dr Deller provides Respiratory and Sleep consultation at the Pindara Specialist Suites in well appointed rooms.

Pindara Private Hospital

Inpatient Care

Patients can be admitted to Pindara or Allamanda Private Hospitals for the investigation and management of a broad range of respiratory and sleep disorders.

Bronchoscopy

A bronchoscopy is a camera inspection of the bronchial tubes. All bronchoscopic procedures are performed at the Pindara Private Hospital Endoscopy Unit. Dr Deller has extensive training in complex diagnostic bronchoscopy including Endobronchial Ultrasound.

What is Endobronchial Ultrasound (EBUS)?

Endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) is a bronchoscopic technique that uses ultrasound to visualize structures within and adjacent to the airway wall. It is most commonly used to localize mediastinal or hilar lymph nodes for transbronchial fine needle aspiration, but can also be used to localize peripheral pulmonary nodules for sampling.

Two main types of endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) exist:

Radial Probe EBUS
Convex Probe EBUS

Lung Function Laboratory

The Pindara Lung Function Laboratory is located within the Pindara Private Hospital and has been in operation since 1988. It is staffed by highly trained and experienced scientists who will make you feel comfortable at all times during your breathing tests.

Why do we measure lung function?

Evaluation of lung function is important in many situations including the assessment of the patient with breathlessness, monitoring of patients with known lung disease and screening for patients who have risk factors for lung disease, such as cigarette smoking.
Types of lung function tests available:

  • Spirometry – An assessment of airway function usually measured before and after an inhaled bronchodilator.
  • Complex Lung Function Tests – A complete and full assessment of lung function, which may include an assessment of airway function, lung volumes and diffusion capacity.
  • Mannitol Bronchoprovocation Testing – An assessment of airway hyperreactivity, which may be useful in the diagnosis of asthma.

Sleep Studies

Genesis SleepCare provides sleep studies at our sleep investigation units at Pindara Private Hospital and John Flynn Hospital.

We use only the gold standard in PSG, adhering to the guidelines prescribed by Medicare Australia, the Thoracic Society of Australia and New Zealand and the American Academy of Sleep Medicine in the performance of all of our sleep studies.
