FAQ

What is a Pulmonologist?

A pulmonologist is a medical doctor who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the lungs and respiratory system. Pulmonology is a branch of medicine that focuses on the lungs, airways, and other parts of the respiratory system, such as the diaphragm, chest wall and blood vessels in the lungs. Pulmonologists typically complete a four-year undergraduate degree, four years of medical school, and a three-year fellowship in pulmonology.

Some of the main responsibilities of a pulmonologist include:

  • Examining and diagnosing patients with lung and respiratory conditions such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), emphysema, pneumonia, and lung cancer.
  • Prescribing and managing treatment plans, which may include medication, bronchoscopy, oxygen therapy, and in some cases, surgery
  • Performing diagnostic tests, such as chest X-rays, CT scans, and lung function tests to evaluate patients' lung health
  • Managing and monitoring patients with lung and respiratory conditions who are hospitalized
  • Collaborating with other healthcare professionals, such as primary care physicians, critical care specialists, and physical therapists to provide comprehensive care for patients.

Overall, pulmonologists are medical doctors who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the lungs and respiratory system. They use their expertise, knowledge, and skills to help patients recover from lung diseases, manage chronic conditions, and improve the quality of life for people with lung and respiratory disorders.

When do you need to visit a Pulmonologist?

A pulmonologist is a medical doctor who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of lung and respiratory conditions.

  • You may need to visit a pulmonologist if you have symptoms such as chronic cough, shortness of breath, chest pain, or wheezing, or if you have a history of lung disease or have been exposed to lung irritants.
  • Additionally, your primary care physician may refer you to a pulmonologist if they suspect you have a lung condition that requires specialist care.

What are 3 conditions treated by a pulmonologist?

  1. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a group of lung diseases that block airflow and make it difficult to breathe. COPD includes conditions such as emphysema and chronic bronchitis.
  2. Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the airways that can cause wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and coughing.
  3. Pulmonary fibrosis is a lung condition that causes thickening and scarring of the lung tissue, making it difficult for the lungs to function properly. This can cause shortness of breath, a dry cough, and fatigue.

Note: This is not an exhaustive list, Pulmonologists also treat lung cancer, lung infections, pleural effusion, sleep apnea, sarcoidosis and other lung related conditions.
