Bronchiectasis

We provide expert assessment of people with bronchiectasis including: CT imaging of chest and sinuses; detailed microbiological evaluation; in-depth analysis of the immune system and screening for genetic conditions such as cystic fibrosis (CF) and primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD).

Our approach to treatment involves:
• Optimisation of airway clearance
     - Mucolytics agents (hypertonic saline, carbocysteine)
     - Enhanced physiotherapy techniques (ACBT, Acapella, Flutter, PEP, high frequency chest wall oscillation)
• Antibiotic therapy for the prevention and treatment of infections
     - oral, nebulised, intravenous
• Anti-inflammatory treatments
• Immunisations
• Immune therapies
     - immunoglobulin replacement
     - interferon gamma therapy
