Who is a pulmonologist?

Pulmonologists (پھیپھڑوں کا ڈاکٹر) are medical specialists who deal with the disorders of the lungs, other organs of the respiratory tract and the chest.

The respiratory tract starts from the nose to the larynx, trachea, bronchi, lungs, and air sacs. It is responsible for the inhalation of oxygen and the exchange of gases at the level of small air sacs in the lungs. This oxygen is then carried by the blood to the organs of the body for nourishment and energy.

Any disorder which impacts the respiratory tract impedes the delivery of oxygen and the patient feels breathless and lethargic.

What are the main areas of concern of a pulmonologist?

Pulmonologists are concerned with the whole respiratory tract, from the nose to the lungs. However, primarily they deal with the disorders of the bronchi and the lungs. Their expertise is in the infectious, inflammatory, structural, neoplastic and autoimmune disorders of the lungs.

Common disorders that pulmonologists (پھیپھڑوں کا ڈاکٹر) deal with include inflammatory diseases like asthma, which cause breathing difficulty due to persistent inflammation in the airway.

Management options of asthma include oral & inhalation medication, and hospitalization in severe cases. Other diseases which are the main concern of a pulmonologist or lungs specialist include interstitial lung diseases (ILD), characterized by lung damage due to scarring and fibrosis.

Pulmonologists also deal with hospitalized patients who experience complications of other medical disorders, for instance, stroke patients who suffer from aspirational pneumonia.

Moreover, pulmonologists deal with chronic obstructive respiratory diseases (COPD) that often plague smokers due to lung damage including emphysema. Patients of emphysema often need supplemental oxygen and their care is overseen by a pulmonary specialist.

What does a Pulmonologist do?

Pulmonologists treat patients dealing with disorders of the lungs and breathing. Any primary healthcare provider can handle acute conditions of the respiratory tract; however, specialist care is needed when there are chronic and more serious disease etiologies at play. These more complex respiratory tract disorders need extensive workup—including chest x-ray, blood work, CT scan, spirometry, sleep studies & bronchoscopies for proper diagnosis and management.

Pulmonologists (پھیپھڑوں کا ڈاکٹر) perform the investigations needed for the diagnosis of respiratory disorders and interpret these studies to reach an accurate conclusion. Once the disease is identified, the next step is to formulate a management plan, which a pulmonologist will do based on their patient’s complaints, symptoms and disease severity. Pulmonologists use a combination of medication, therapy as well as pulmonary rehab to help their patients, as some pulmonary diseases are chronic and require long-term care.

There are many symptoms of the pulmonary and cardiac conditions that can overlap. For this reason, pulmonologists sometimes work with cardiologists for diagnosis and disease management.
