Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine

The Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine first opened its doors in the 1980s with one faculty member; it has grown to become a faculty of 24 dedicated physicians of pulmonary medicine, a critical care unit, and a center including sleep medicine. Our clinician researchers, eight professors, four associate professors, and 12 assistant professors, are all engaged in scholarly activity including teaching, research, and mentorship of our fellows and residents.  We are proud to have several of our faculty conducting federally funded clinical research projects on asthma, COPD, and basic research at the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research.

Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine

The Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine offers comprehensive and individualized care for adult patients suffering from common and uncommon respiratory disorders and sleep disorders. The North Shore-LIJ Health System provides expert treatment and management for all of them, from asthma and allergies to emphysema and cystic fibrosis. Our comprehensive Sleep Disorders Center provides diagnostic and treatment services for sleep apnea, insomnia, and other conditions.

Clinical Practice

Physicians provide an array of services at the Adult Cystic Fibrosis Center, Beth Thalheim Asthma Center (ALA Network), Rehabilitation Center, Advanced Lung Disease and Pulmonary Hypertension Center, Sleep Disorders Center, and the outpatient pulmonary practice. Our faculty are leaders in applications for critical care ultrasonography and in demonstrating that people other than radiologists and cardiologists can be proficient. The division has spearheaded the development of national ultrasonography courses and organized training for most of New York City’s first-year pulmonary and critical care fellows – helping raise the level of proficiency in ICUs across the city. At North Shore-LIJ, critical care ultrasonography includes transesophageal echocardiography and training for house staff as well as fellows.
