  • Oxygen in the air is essential for our
    life.  Lung, like heart, is vital in delivering
    oxygenated blood to entire body.  Lungs illness
    is often overlooked and diagnosed late unlike
    heart ailments.  Awareness about lung illness is
    lacking among doctors as well as common man. 
    Lung, like skin, is directly exposed to  harmful
    environmental  air pollutants and breathing
    cough problem is increasing day by day especially
    in the fast growing urban area of PCMC. 
    Lung/Respiratory illness can range from simple
    allergic cough, Asthma, Smoking/dust related COPD
    to Sleep Disorder breathing(like Snoring),
    Tuberculosis, Lung Cancer and deaths in  ICU
    from  Respiratory failure(ARDS, Hospital acquired
  • In India, unlike western world, a dedicated
    comprehensive Pulmonology combined with Critical
    Intensivist super specialty training is lacking
    in Medical Colleges and university.  

  • Pulmonology is the subspecialty of internal
    medicine concerned with diseases of the lungs and
    bronchial tubes, which often involves evaluation
    of the upper respiratory tract (nose, pharynx and
    throat) as well as the heart. Pulmonologists must
    first complete seven or more years of medical
    school and postgraduate training and become board
    certified in Internal Medicine. Then, for an
    additional two to three years, they study
    conditions specific to the respiratory system.
  • What pulmonologists do
  • Pulmonologists are specially trained in
    diseases and conditions of the chest, such as
    pneumonia, asthma, tuberculosis, emphysema, or
    complicated chest infections.

  • When you need a pulmonologist
  • Not everyone who suffers from an acute
    respiratory condition or chronic respiratory
    diseases needs a pulmonologist. Many of these
    conditions can be managed by a general internist.
    Their skills are usually needed for patients with
    complex pulmonary problems, such as emphysema,
    tuberculosis, asthma, complicated infections of
    the chest, the pulmonary complications of AIDS,
    injury, and complications of respiratory
    diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. Does a
    pulmonologist perform surgery?
  • They are called as an Interventional
    Pulmonologist. They perform specialized
    procedures to obtain samples of the lining of the
    chest wall or of the lung itself. For example,
    they use flexible fiber optics (Bronchoscopy) to
    see inside the air passages and extract sample
    pieces for study. They also perform what is
    called Thracoscopy, a video camera guided biopsy
    and treatment of fluid around lungs .
