Respiratory Day Case
As well as the clinics, patients attend the Respiratory Outpatient Department for care and monitoring following CT guided lung biopsies that take place in the general X-ray Department. This is usually on a Tuesday or Friday.
Patients also attend the Day Case Unit if receiving intravenous antibiotic therapy on a daily basis as an outpatient. This usually lasts 7-10 days. Some patients attend the unit in order to be assessed for long term oxygen therapy (LTOT) involving arterial blood gas sampling which is performed by a member of the medical team.
