What is Pulmonology?

Pulmonology is a subspecialty that focuses on complex diseases of the lungs. In order to diagnose and treat lung disorders, a pulmonologist may also examine the chest, nose, throat, or heart. However, the main function of pulmonology is to make sure the lungs are functioning well.

Some of the diseases and disorders that might be treated by a pulmonologist include:
  • Pneumonia
  • Asthma
  • Tuberculosis
  • Emphysema
  • Mesothelioma and other lung cancers
  • Cystic Fibrosis

A pulmonologist often uses pulmonary function tests, such as spirometry, to measure how well the lungs are able to move air in and out. Pulmonologists are trained to take surgical samples and biopsies when needed, but they do not typically perform surgery. Pulmonologists may provide consultations to other doctors, acute care for sudden illnesses, or regular care for patients with long-term lung disorders.
