Pulmonology is a medical specialty that deals with diseases involving the respiratory tract. It is also known as respirology, respiratory medicine, or chest medicine in some countries and areas. Pulmonology is considered a branch of internal medicine, and is related to intensive care medicine.
We strongly encourage you to listen to your body when it talks! Your body talks by producing symptoms and signs that indicate a problem. Signs related to the respiratory tract may include difficulty breathing, unwavering cough, coughing up blood or mucus.
If you have any condition that compromises your breathing, you’ll want to speak to a pulmonologist. This type of specialist can treat conditions such as asthma, bronchitis, chest infections, COPD, emphysema, tuberculosis, and more.
