Inova offers highly specialized inpatient care for patients with advanced lung problems through a dedicated Acute Pulmonary Unit. We also offer a Pulmonary Embolism Response Team (PERT) which most often is activated through the emergency room, but it can also be activated by any attending physician to provide an immediate, integrated team-based response for evaluation and treatment of suspected or known PE.

All inpatients at Inova Fairfax Hospital with advanced lung conditions benefit from the unique expertise of our specialized lung care teams and programs.
