Dr Juan Mulder is a Consultant Respiratory and Sleep Medicine Physician. He is a fellow of the Royal Australasian Society of Physicians, a member of the Thoracic Society of Australia and a Registered Polysomnographist.

He has a particular interest in sleep disorders, especially complex disorders such as insomnia, parasomnia, narcolepsy, restless legs syndrome and sleep apnoea. He is a firm believer in a multimodal approach to managing sleep disorders, given their frequently complex nature. Thus, he undertook additional training in Intensive Care, to enable him to manage complex modes of invasive and non-invasive ventilation, as well as treating critically ill patients.

He is an adept thoracic physician and does bronchoscopy, bronchoscopic interventions (lung valves), endobronchial ultrasound, lung function test reporting, thoracic ultrasound and intercostal catheter insertion. He also manages the workup of lung nodules and abnormal x rays or CT chest imaging.
He has a public appointment with Peninsula Health and works at both Frankston Public Hospital and Peninsula Private Hospital.

LUNG FUNCTION TESTING

PASO Medical’s on site Lung Function test facility allows for a streamlined patient diagnosis in suspected Lung Cancer cases and other medical conditions.

Lung function tests are performed by our Respiratory Scientists, with patient results and reports presented by our Respiratory Physicians.

Investigations into Lung Capacity, signs of obstruction (including the effects of Ventolin) and Oxygen transfer via breath analysis, are useful in assessing patients who have Lung Cancer or Neuromuscular Weakness.

Lung Function tests also help to diagnose Asthma and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) resulting in improved management of these conditions by our Respiratory & Sleep Physicians.
