Medical Group clinic focuses on heart and lungs
Cardiopulmonary technicians of the 673d Medical Group Cardiopulmonary Clinic practice a bronchoalveolar lavage, a type of bronchoscopy that squirts a liquid into the lungs and then collects it again to identify disease in the lungs, at the Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson hospital at JBER, June 9, 2017. The clinic is capable of doing many tests and procedures from noninvasive exercise studies to invasive bronchoscopies, which involve putting a scope into the lungs through the patient’s mouth or nose.
