Specialties

Dr. Irlene Locklear has the following 2 specialties

  • Critical Care Medicine

    Also sometimes referred to as intensivists, critical care specialists are physicians with specialized training in the diagnosis and management of life-threatening conditions. Some of these conditions affect vital organs like the heart and lungs, those that make breathing difficult or impossible, and those that affect entire organ systems, like the renal system.
    Critical care specialists are typically found in a hospital's intensive care unit where they monitor patients with life-threatening conditions and make determinations as to the best course of treatment.

  • Pulmonary Disease

    A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
    These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
    Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
    Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.

Sorry is as Sorry does

This Dr.? if she even exists....almost never saw my family member in CFVH.Our CT and XRAYs' show findings obvious for concern,however when she and Dave' saw her nothing is wrong...everything is fine.Be your own advocate tell these Doctors you want to see your scans and films and have them point out each defect on the reports. My loved ones lung nodule grew from 1.5 in 07 to 3.0 today. and we still don't know what it is!!!!!! but being told don't worry follow up in a year!!!I hope I do wait!!!!
