A pulmonologist’s job is to help in the treatment of different lung diseases, not excluding breathing difficulties due to asthma or different allergies. Pulmonologists also treat apparently simple conditions like snoring, and more severe diseases that are common in India like chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD). Pulmonology as a sub-specialisation falls under the umbrella that is internal medicine. It deals with respiratory tract health; this includes everything between the nostrils, right up to the minute alveoli in the lungs. But more accurately, pulmonology deals with the health and diseases of the lower respiratory tract, the lungs, and on the effective oxygenation of blood. Other commonly used terms for this specialisation are: respiratory medicine, thoracic medicine, chest medicine, etc. There is significant overlap of pulmonology with critical care departments. Anaesthesia and other related streams of internal medicine complement and add to the core of this sub-specialisation. Pulmonologists also work alongside bariatric surgeons and otorhinolaryngologists. Some of the commonly seen diseases that pulmonologists in India have to deal with are pneumonia, tuberculosis, emphysema, pulmonary infections. A pulmonologist is invaluable, because difficulty breathing can be debilitating and can affect a person’s life, and ultimately affect society.
