What is A Pulmonologist?

A pulmonologist is a medical specialist dealing primarily with issues involving the respiratory tract and chest. They are experts in managing patients who need ventilators. They are often sought after to help with conditions with the chest, such as pneumonia, asthma, tuberculosis, emphysema and other chest infections. Pulmonologists are doctors who are also trained in internal medicine. Many times, hereditary diseases affecting the lungs can be the culprit for people who suffer with pulmonary issues, but exposure to toxins or other infectious agents and autoimmune conditions can also be the cause.

Symptoms and Treatment of Pulmonary Issues?

Medication would be the first treatment option prescribed by a pulmonologist either by inhalation or oral form. Oxygen therapy is used for severe respiratory disease, and if that doesn’t work, mechanical ventilation is required. Optimizing the airways for oxygen to pass through is the ultimate goal for a pulmonologist.
