What Is the Role of a Pulmonologist?

A pulmonologist is a physician that specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the respiratory system, which includes the lungs and other organs that aid in breathing.

Your respiratory system consists of the following components:

  • The mouth and nose
  • The Throat (pharynx)
  • Box for speaking (larynx)
  • bronchial tube (trachea)
  • Bronchial tubes are tubes that run through the lungs.
  • Lungs and their components, such as bronchioles and alveoli
  • Diaphragm
  • Sinuses

A Pulmonologist Treats:

  • Asthma is a disease that causes your airways to become inflamed and narrowed, making it difficult to breathe.

  • Emphysema and chronic bronchitis are examples of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), a category of lung disorders that includes emphysema.

  • Cystic fibrosis is a genetic illness that causes sticky mucus to accumulate in your lungs.

  • Emphysema is a lung disease that causes damage to the air sacs.

  • Interstitial lung disease is a set of disorders that cause your lungs to scar and harden.

  • Lung cancer is cancer that develops in the lungs and spreads throughout the body.

  • Obstructive sleep apnea causes breathing issues and respiratory failure by causing periodic pauses in breathing while sleeping.

  • Pulmonary hypertension, or excessive blood pressure in the arteries of the lungs, is a condition that affects many people.

  • Tuberculosis is a lung infection caused by germs.

  • Bronchiectasis is a lung disease that causes your airways to expand and become flabby or scarred.
  • Bronchitis is an irritated airway accompanied by a cough and excess mucus. It has the potential to cause infection.

  • Pneumonia is an illness that causes your lungs' air sacs (alveoli) to swell and fill with pus.

  • COVID-19 pneumonia is a type of pneumonia that can cause serious breathing issues and even death.
