PULMONOLOGY

Pulmonology is treatment of respiratory system disorders. A pulmonologist is a Doctor who treats Diseases of the lungs. The respiratory system includes the organs which helps one to breathe and can be broadly divided into airway, the lungs, and the respiratory muscles.

The airway includes the nose, mouth, pharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchi, bronchioles, alveoli

Some of the common conditions treated by a pulmonologist are:

  • Asthma
  • Bronchitis, which happens when you have inflamed lower airways
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which causes an airflow blockage
  • Emphysema, which happens when the alveoli in your lungs are damaged
  • Lung disease which affects the space and tissue within the lung
  • Occupational lung diseases that occur due to the inhalation of dusts, chemicals, or proteins
  • obstructive sleep apnoea, which causes your breathing to slow or stop entirely when you are sleeping
