Pulmonology is a branch of medicine dedicated to diagnosing and treating diseases of the respiratory system, such as lung infections. The respiratory system includes organs like the lungs, bronchial tubes and trachea responsible for breathing as well as exchanging oxygen for carbon dioxide exchanges. Pulmonologists specialize in this field to offer care for various respiratory conditions

Respiratory Conditions:

Pulmonologists specialize in diagnosing and treating various respiratory conditions, such as those listed below:

  • Asthma
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Bronchitis
  • Pneumonia
  • Pulmonary fibrosis
  • Lung cancer
  • Sleep apnea
  • Tuberculosis
  • Interstitial lung diseases
  • Allergies affecting the respiratory system


  • Pulmonary Function Testing: Pulmonologists utilize various diagnostic tests to assess lung function. Spirometry measures volumetric airflow between lung chambers; diffusion capacity testing evaluates gas exchange in the lungs.
  • Bronchoscopy: Bronchoscopy uses an examination tube equipped with a camera to visually inspect airways, obtain tissue samples for analysis and administer interventions intended to treat various lung conditions.
  • Sleep Medicine: Pulmonologists who specialize in sleep medicine specialize in treating disorders such as sleep apnea, insomnia and narcolepsy.
  • Critical Care: Pulmonologists often specialize in intensivist medicine and provide care in intensive care units (ICU) for those suffering from serious respiratory and critical illnesses, including acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) or sepsis.
  • Cystic Fibrosis Care: Pulmonologists often play an essential part in managing patients living with cystic fibrosis, an inherited genetic disease affecting respiratory and digestive systems.
  • Pulmonary Rehabilitation: Pulmonary rehabilitation programs assist those living with chronic lung conditions to improve their lung function and quality of life through exercises, education and counseling services.


Pulmonologists work in close cooperation with other healthcare professionals such as primary care physicians, respiratory therapists, radiologists, and surgeons in order to offer comprehensive respiratory care for patients suffering from respiratory conditions. Pulmonologists may use imaging technologies like chest X-rays and CT scans in diagnosis. Pulmonology plays an essential role in diagnosing and managing an array of respiratory conditions while assuring healthy lung function for its patients.
