Respiratory Care

Brownwood Regional Medical Center provides a wide variety of diagnostic, preventive and treatment services for diseases that affect breathing and lung function. Our pulmonary doctors (pulmonologists) focus on detecting, monitoring and treating lung-related issues.

Electroencephalogram (EEG)

The health of your nervous system is a very important part of overall health. Brownwood Regional Medical Center can use an EEG (electroencephalogram) to assess that health, recording the brain’s electrical activity through sensors attached to various points of the head. The results can then be used to monitor and diagnose conditions such as epileptic seizure, coma, dizziness and dementia.

Pulmonary Function Testing

We use pulmonary function tests at Brownwood Regional Medical Center to diagnose lung conditions. The tests determine the type and severity of an issue and provide useful information that helps staff members choose treatment methods and learn more about different lung conditions. Doctors may order a pulmonary function test for a host of reasons.
