The Respiratory Division provides a very active pulmonary consultation service to the medical, surgical, and emergency departments located at MUHC Glen.  A diverse array of complex pulmonary disorders are encountered, including those associated with solid organ and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, immunological lung diseases, and pregnancy.

The Montreal Chest Institute (MCI), a centre of clinical, research, and teaching expertise in respiratory diseases, provides highly specialized ambulatory programs such as asthma, tuberculosis, cystic fibrosis, and COPD, in addition the rapid investigation clinic (RIC) for patients with suspected lung cancer, and the rapid access clinic (RAC) for patients with other respiratory problems requiring urgent investigation.   The Sleep Disorders Centre, a multidisciplinary service, aims at diagnosing and treating patients with sleep-disordered breathing and other sleep pathologies and includes a very active service for ambulatory (home) sleep studies.  The Sleep Laboratory has 3 beds dedicated to research studies, and 6 clinical beds, for full in-laboratory polysomnography and other investigations. 

Other ambulatory specialties include clinical pulmonary physiology (including exercise), and neuromuscular disorders affecting respiration.  Services offered by the MCI also include the Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program, the National Home Ventilatory Assistance Program (responsible for the care of patients on chronic mechanical ventilation in the western half of Quebec.)  Many of these clinics bring together respirologists and other specialists (e.g. infectious diseases, public health, allergy, thoracic surgery), as well as family physicians, nurse-clinicians, and respiratory therapists.

The Respiratory Day Hospital, cares for patients requiring more than routine outpatient care but who are not sufficiently ill to require admission, primarily those with obstructive airways diseases.  It also offers a “drop-in” service for acutely ill respiratory patients.  Importantly, it provides a one-stop location for patients requiring complex outpatient investigation.  It offers a full array of basic and advanced bronchoscopic and pleural procedures, including endobronchial ultrasound, medical thoracoscopy, and ultrasound-guided insertion of indwelling pleural catheters.

The MCI is home for several pulmonary in-patient programs.  A 16-bed in-patient ward provides specialty care for patients with acute and/or chronic respiratory diseases, and is closely linked to MCI's outpatient services.   There is a 7-bed respiratory ICU, which specializes in weaning patients from mechanical ventilation.
