Pulmonologists or lungs specialists are physicians who specialize in the respiratory system. From the windpipe to the lungs, if your complaint involves any part of breathing in oxygen and breathing out carbon dioxide, a pulmonologist is the doctor you want to solve the problem.
Pulmonologists work with patients facing serious or chronic breathing problems. While primary care doctors can handle mild or short-term conditions, such as those caused by a cold or respiratory infection, you’ll need to see a pulmonologist to diagnose, treat and manage more complex illnesses that primarily affect the lungs like respiratory failure, asthma, bronchitis and infectious diseases like pneumonia and tuberculosis, etc.
If you’re struggling with respiratory disease, accurate diagnosis is the first step. A pulmonologist uses procedures such as spirometry, bloodwork, chest X-rays, CT scans, bronchoscopies and sleep studies to diagnose chronic lung disease. Once you have a diagnosis, a pulmonologist will create a treatment plan. A pulmonologist will use medications, therapies and pulmonary rehabilitation & surgery if needed to help you return to wellness.
