Conditions treated and cured in this ward


Respiratory Tract conditions can involve airway, lung, pleura, chest wall, also associated with other organs and systems’ disorders.


These are conditions with different causes: inflammatory, infectious, degenerative, acute, chronic or reacutized chronic.


We study and treat infectious diseases like pneumonia and pleurisy, inflammatory diseases like asthma, acute and chronic bronchitis, obstructive chronic bronchitis, emphysema, interstitial lung diseases or degenerative diseases like pleura or lung neoplasms, both primitive and secondary or systemic diseases secondarily affecting Respiratory Tract, like connective tissue and neuromuscular diseases.

Conditions diagnosed and treated


Among the main conditions treated we can consider:


  • Acute, chronic or reacutized chronic respiratory failure
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases
  • Reacutized bronchial asthma with necessary hospitalization
  • Pneumonia and pleurisy
  • Interstitial and infectious lung diseases (such as sarcoidosis and bronchiolitis)
  • Primitive or secondary lung or pleura neoplasms
  • Pleural effusions
  • Neuromuscular diseases involving Respiratory Tract

Internal Medicine

Manager: Paolo Bazzoni

Anti-neoplastic therapy

Pneumology section, integrated in Medicine Department, offers a specialistic hospitalization, even with beds equipped with multiparameter monitoring, and mechanical ventilators for invasive and non-invasive ventilation, working in team with Intensive Therapy ward. There also is a collaboration with a Respiratory Physical Therapist. A Respiratory Physiopathology Service is available, permitting complete functional diagnostics for simple or global spirometry both with gas dilution technique and with plethysmographic cabin, diffusion measurement, breathing pressure measurement and airway resistances, pharmacological bronchodilation test, methacholine bronchial challenge test, walk test, inhalant allergy test.


Interventional Pneumology Service permits to perform diagnostic, staging and therapeutic procedures with flexible and rigid bronchoscopy:


  • Inspecting and diagnostic bronchoscopy with all withdrawal techniques, bronchial, trans-bronchial and lymph node, X-ray and ultrasound guided (EBUS)
  • Rigid bronchoscopy for tracheobronchial unblocking with the help of lasers and argon-plasma and positioning of tracheal and bronchial prosthesis
  • Advanced endoscopic therapeutic procedures, such as bronchial thermoplastics for asthma and endoscopic treatment for emphysema
  • Chest diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, such as thoracentesis, placement of thoracic drains, chest ultrasound


All clinic activities and diagnostic, therapeutic and assistive pathways are made according to national and international guidelines, based on standards acknowledged by national and international scientific societies.

Doctor-patient relations

Particular attention is dedicated to customization of services and cures.
Medics of this unit work together with other specialists to treat conditions in a multidisciplinary team and choose the most appropriate therapy; this also happens during multidisciplinary meetings about the condition, with other colleagues like surgeons, anatomo-pathologists, oncologists, radiologists (Lung Unit).


In order to improve communication between patient and doctor, a project was created in 2014: the nurse represents the point of reference for the patient during all the stay.


At the beginning of the stay, the patient is “assigned” to a “tutor nurse” who will be his spokesman for his necessities, interpreting and taking care of his needs.


Monday to Friday 8:00 – 19:00 Saturday 8:00 – 12:00
