What is Pulmonology?

Pulmonology is a branch of medicine focused on the study and treatment of respiratory diseases and disorders. Pulmonologists are medical specialists who are trained in the diagnosis and management of conditions such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), pneumonia, lung cancer, pulmonary fibrosis, and sleep-related breathing disorders, among others.

Diseases Treated in our Pulmonology Department-

  • Asthma
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Pneumonia
  • Bronchitis
  • Emphysema
  • Lung cancer
  • Pulmonary fibrosis
  • Pulmonary hypertension
  • Sleep apnea
  • Tuberculosis (TB)
  • Interstitial lung diseases
  • Pleural effusion
  • Bronchiectasis
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Pulmonary embolism
Asthma
TB

Procedures Performed in our Pulmonology Department-

  • Pulmonary Function Testing (PFT): Measures lung function to assess breathing capacity and diagnose respiratory conditions.
  • Bronchoscopy: Allows direct visualization of the airways for diagnosis and treatment of lung disorders.
  • Thoracentesis: Removal of fluid from the pleural space surrounding the lungs to relieve symptoms and aid diagnosis.
  • Biopsy: Sampling of lung tissue for pathological examination to diagnose lung diseases, including cancer.
  • Chest X-ray and CT scan: Imaging techniques used for the diagnosis and monitoring of lung diseases.
  • Polysomnography: Sleep study to diagnose sleep-related breathing disorders such as sleep apnea.
  • Pleural biopsy: Removal of tissue from the lining of the lungs to diagnose pleural diseases.
  • Lung volume reduction surgery: Surgical procedure to remove damaged lung tissue in patients with severe emphysema.
  • Video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS): Minimally invasive surgical technique used for diagnosing and treating lung conditions.
  • Pulmonary rehabilitation: Structured program involving exercise, education, and support to improve lung function and quality of life in patients with chronic respiratory diseases.

Treatments Available in our Pulmonology Department-

  • Medication management: Prescription of bronchodilators, corticosteroids, antibiotics, and other medications to manage respiratory symptoms and control underlying conditions.
  • Oxygen therapy: Supplemental oxygen administration to improve oxygenation in patients with chronic respiratory failure.
  • Smoking cessation counseling: Support and resources to help patients quit smoking and reduce the risk of developing lung diseases.
  • Immunization: Vaccination against influenza and pneumonia to prevent respiratory infections.
  • Biologic therapies: Targeted therapies for severe asthma and other respiratory conditions.
  • Lung cancer treatment: Multidisciplinary approach including surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and targeted therapy for lung cancer management.
  • Pulmonary rehabilitation: Tailored exercise programs, education, and lifestyle modifications to optimize lung function and improve quality of life.
  • Mechanical ventilation: Supportive therapy for patients with acute respiratory failure or respiratory muscle weakness.
  • Palliative care: Symptom management and supportive care for patients with advanced respiratory diseases to improve comfort and quality of life.
  • Lung transplant referral: Evaluation and referral for eligible patients with end-stage lung disease who may benefit from lung transplantation.

At our hospital, we are committed to delivering compassionate, personalized care to patients with respiratory disorders. Our multidisciplinary team works collaboratively to provide comprehensive evaluation, treatment, and support to help patients breathe easier and live healthier lives.
