PULMONOLOGY

OVERVIEW

Pulmonology is a medical specialty that deals with diseases involving the respiratory tract.[1] The term is derived from the Latin word pulmō, pulmōnis (“lung”) and the Greek suffix -λογία-logia (“study of”). Pulmonology is synonymous with pneumology (from Greek πνεύμων (“lung”) and -λογία), respirology and respiratory medicine.

Pulmonology is known as chest medicine and respiratory medicine in some countries and areas. Pulmonology is considered a branch of internal medicine, and is related to intensive care medicine. Pulmonology often involves managing patients who need life support and mechanical ventilation. Pulmonologists are specially trained in diseases and conditions of the chest, particularly pneumoniaasthmatuberculosisemphysema, and complicated chest infections
