What is Pulmonologist?
A pulmonologist is a medical specialist dealing primarily with issues involving the respiratory tract and chest. They are experts in managing patients who need ventilators. They are often sought after to help with conditions with the chest, such as pneumonia, asthma, tuberculosis, emphysema and other chest infections. Pulmonologists are doctors who are also trained in internal medicine. Many times, hereditary diseases affecting the lungs can be the culprit for people who suffer with pulmonary issues, but exposure to toxins or other infectious agents and autoimmune conditions can also be the cause.
