What is a Pulmonologist?
A pulmonologist is a physician specializing in the medical field of pulmonology. Pulmonology, as a medical discipline, covers a wide range of organs and body parts involved in breathing.
The Respiratory System Includes:
• Nasal cavity
• Bronchi and bronchioles
• Accessory muscles involved in breathing
The respiratory system is complex and nuanced, with many conditions often mimicking those of heart conditions. As such it is not uncommon for a pulmonologist to work in tandem with a cardiologist to make a diagnosis.
Signs you May Need to See a Pulmonologist
A visit to our clinic is usually not the first place a patient goes to for help. In fact, the majority of common, non-life-threatening and non-chronic, lung conditions are usually treated by a primary care physician. For example, general asthma, allergies, coughing and more.
However, when symptoms persist or become increasingly severe, this often requires a consultation with a lung specialist to identify and treat the underlying cause.
Some Indicators you May Need to See a Pulmonologist Include:
• Difficulty breathing
• Shortness of breath during normal daily activities
• Pain or tightness in the chest
• Chronic or worsening wheezing or coughing
• Frequent chest colds or bronchitis
• Difficult to control asthma
• And more…
Your primary care physician should be able to help guide you as to when it may be appropriate to see a specialist.
What to Expect When You See a Pulmonary Doctor
An initial consultation will generally involve an extensive and detailed look at your medical history, including symptoms, severity and how long you have been experiencing them as well as any treatments or therapies you may have been prescribed to try.
Depending on your unique circumstances any number of tests may be necessary before making a proper diagnosis and establishing a tailored treatment plan.
These tests may include:
• Diagnostics such as x-ray, CT or MRIs
• Blood work
• Spirometry – assess how well your lungs work
• Bronchoscopy – to visually examine the inside of the lungs, including the bronchi
