Who Is A Pulmonologist?

Pulmonologists (Lungs Specialist)  are medical doctors who specialize in respiratory diseases and examine the entire respiratory system, including the lungs, upper airways, thoracic cavity, and chest wall. Pulmonology is a medical specialty within internal medicine and a pulmonologist despite dealing with the respiratory system, also specializes in specific diseases concerning the chest. Some of the male and female chest specialists in Okara specialize in certain illnesses, such as asthma, pulmonary fibrosis, and COPD.

Pulmonologists deal with patients of all age groups suffering from acute or chronic respiratory illnesses. They treat and manage all the complex illnesses related to the lungs.

Moreover, since lung and cardiac disorders have similar symptoms, pulmonologists frequently refer to cardiologists when diagnosing patients. A lung specialist will manage the treatment of patients who requires life support or mechanical ventilation.
