Respiratory

Our lead consultant Dr Aashish Vyas, has been a consultant Respiratory Physician since 2003.

His primary interests are asthma, complex or undiagnosed breathlessness and supporting patients on home mechanical ventilation.

The ethos of the private practice is to support patients to have improved control of their respiratory wellbeing in the most effective and holistic way.

Using a combination of personal interaction and diagnostic technology (including assessment of lung biomechanics with lung physiology testing and understanding underlying lung inflammation causing breathlessness via analysis of inflammatory lung biomarkers) to help understand symptoms causation and management.
