Pulmonologist

Pulmonology deals with diseases involving the respiratory tract, including the diagnosis and treatment of sleep-related breathing disorders. Respiratory tract diseases can make sleep disorders worse, and vice versa. Therefore, a patient with sleep disorders may be referred to a pulmonologist.

Pulmonologist a.k.a. lung specialist

Diagnosis begins with a conversation, listening to lung sounds with a stethoscope and measuring the volume of air inhaled and exhaled using spirometry.

 

Our pulmonologists receive patients with the following concerns:

  • various respiratory tract problems
  • snoring
  • shortness of breath

  • asthma or COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) suspicion
