Chest and Pulmonology

‘In spire’ in Latin means to breathe in spirit. With inspiration, you take in a breath and you feel an elevated sense of creativity and purpose. The only prerequisite to inhabiting the body is to be able to take a breath.
Breath is life, we each take about 20,000 breaths a day yet most people are unconscious of their breathing and take it for granted.
All the bodily function depends upon it so it’s easy to see why illnesses that affect the lungs and breathing are so vital to overall health. Life is dependent upon breathing.
At the Saudi German hospital Cairo our highly skilled pulmonology consultants and specialists can help you breathe easier and enjoy a better quality of life. Patients satisfaction along with state-of-the-art pulmonary medicine services, remain our primary clinical objective.
