What Is Pulmonology?
Pulmonology is the study, diagnosis, and treatment of the lungs and respiratory tract. It is associated with the treatment of pulmonary diseases and conditions such as cystic fibrosis, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), asthma, interstitial lung disease, pneumonia, sarcoidosis, and sleep apnea, as well as pulmonary arterial hypertension, embolism, or sequestration.
Physicians specializing in pulmonology spend time in their training concentrating on the lungs and respiratory system. They are often members of the American College of Chest Physicians, the American Lung Association, or the American Thoracic Society. Common diagnostic procedures used in pulmonology are chest X-rays, pulmonary function tests (PFTs), CT scans, and sleep studies.
