Department of Pulmonology

The Department of Pulmonology in the First Teaching Hospital of Tianjin University of Traditional Chinese Medicine is one of the most demanded in the hospital: we render healthcare services to 80 patients per month. Our unit is equipped with all the necessary medical devices. We have bronchoscopy and spirometry rooms, an apparatus for sleep apnea monitoring, etc.

What We Treat

Our Department focuses on diagnosis and treatment of respiratory pathologies, such as:

  • spasmodic asthma;
  • chronic obstructive lung disorder;
  • chronic respiratory failure;
  • interstitial lung disorder;
  • carcinoma of lungs, and so on.

We help both children and grown-ups with chronic and acute disorders of the respiratory tract.


The doctors of our Department reveal a number of common respiratory disorders. In order to diagnose these illnesses, we use, first of all, physical methods: visual examination of the patient’s respiratory organs, percussion, palpation, and auscultation of the chest. The laboratory tests needed for diagnosis of pulmonary diseases include examination of sputum for bacilli and malignant cells.

As for instrumental methods of diagnostics, they are also widely used by the specialists of our Department. To reveal different pathologies of the respiratory tract, we apply the following techniques:

  • spirography;
  • pneumotachography;
  • bronchoscopy;
  • radiological mode of respiratory system examination;
  • ultrasonography;
  • thoracoscopy;
  • radionuclide methods of diagnostics.


Treating with pulmonary patients, the doctors of our Department use the principals of the evidence-based medicine, as well as the schemes of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The latter include acupuncture and herbal treatment. Such a combination of therapeutic methods lets us obtain maximally effective and quick results.

The underlying principles of our approach are the complexity, individualization, and consistency of treatment. We develop an individual therapeutic regimen for each client, taking into consideration his personal medical data and the stage of the illness.
