Department of Pulmonary Medicine

Pulmonary  Medicine or Pulmonology is the sub-specialty of internal medicine  dealing with the diseases of the lungs and bronchial tubes, which often  involves evaluation of the upper respiratory tract (nose, pharynx and  throat) as well as the heart.  Additionally,  pulmonology is also related to critical care medicine or intensive care  medicine when dealing with patients that require mechanical ventilation.

Pulmonologists must become board certified in Internal Medicine by completing seven or  more years of medical school and postgraduate training.  Then, for an  additional two to three years, they study conditions specific to the  respiratory system.  Pulmonologists are specially  trained in diseases and conditions of the chest, such as pneumonia,  asthma, tuberculosis, emphysema or complicated chest infections.
