What is Pulmonology?

Pulmonology is the branch of medicine which deals with treating respiratory health-related problems

A pulmonologist is a healthcare physician who helps people with breathing and respiratory problems. Their practice also includes studying internal medicine. They are fully qualified for complete physical aspects of lung functioning, respiratory tract functioning and related problems.  

A pulmonologist goes through the same training as that of an internal medicine specialist, which is why they are experienced in internal medicine. The lungs doctor will focus on special treatments such as asthma, chronic lung diseases, bronchitis disease, any other complex lung related issue or disease which is primarily affecting the functioning of the lungs. A chest doctor may even ask you to undergo procedures such as CT scans, blood work sampling, spirometry, chest X-rays to understand the right diagnosis of your underlying problem. Some breathing specialists have undertaken surgery as a specialization and are trained in conducting lung surgeries. As a part of diagnostic measures, they can prescribe medications as well.
