As Pulmonology or Pneumology is a medical specialty that deals with diseases related to the respiratory tract, our physicians specialize in the entire respiratory system, applying their advanced knowledge – from the windpipe to the lungs.

Some of the conditions covered under our Pulmonology treatment and care are as follows:

Asthma – major Non-Communicable Disease (NCD), Asthma affects both children and adults. It is a condition in which the airways narrow and swell causing difficulty in breathing or shortness of breath and tightness of chest. One may produce extra mucus and trigger coughing along with a wheezing sound while breathing. Asthma not only interferes with routine life but also might be life-threatening in some cases. Our specialists realize that Asthma’s symptoms can be controlled. Therefore, we track the symptoms closely and make any necessary adjustments in the treatment over a period of time. Our preventive medications can reduce flare-ups. In some cases, if emergency treatment is required, our specialists are well-trained to handle such situations, by monitoring after diagnosis, controlling recurrence for long-term, and even advising against overuse of medication as well.

Bronchitis – An inflammation of the bronchial tubes’ lining is Bronchitis, identifiable by discolored thick mucus while coughing accompanied by shortness of breath and fever along with a lack of energy. Depending upon the condition, our doctors suggest tests like chest X-ray to ascertain whether one has pneumonia, sputum tests to detect any allergies, and pulmonary function tests to measure the capacity of the lungs to hold air in order to check for asthma or emphysema. Our doctors prescribe antibiotics in case of any bacterial infections, or inhaler and other medicines to reduce inflammation.

COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) This is mainly caused by smoking. In almost 9 out of 10 cases, it has been found that the harmful chemicals in smoke can cause damage to the lining of the lungs and the airways.

  • Other causes may include exposure to chemical fumes and dust such as coal dust and grain and flour dust at the workplace.  
  • Exposure to air pollution over prolonged periods of time, and genetics, also contribute to affecting how your lungs function.
  • Our Pulmonologist are expertly trained to treat damaged and inflamed lungs and airways.

Pulmonary Fibrosis – The damage and scarring of lung tissue leading to stiff tissues is known as Pulmonary Fibrosis. Smoking, old age, breathing in hazardous substances, autoimmune disease, rheumatoid arthritis, viral infections, and radiation therapy are some of the cases that increase the risk of Pulmonary Fibrosis. A thorough examination by our specialists includes tracking the progression of the disease through lab or blood tests, chest X-ray, CT Scan, breathing tests, lung biopsy, and measuring of oxygen levels in the blood.

Rheumatoid Lung disease – Related to rheumatoid arthritis, Rheumatoid Lung Disease is a condition that includes inflammation of the pleura, fluid in the chest (pleural effusions), vasculitis, pulmonary hypertension and airways’ blockage (bronchiolitis obliterans). Our doctors thoroughly examine and understand the diagnosis by considering the medical history along with doing a physical exam. We also conduct blood tests for any signs of inflammation, CT Scan for identifying any scars in the lungs, biopsy of the lung, and bronchoscopy for checking any infection.

Interstitial lung disease (ILD) Scarring and inflammation of the interstitium or the tissue that surrounds the lungs’ air sacs, airways and blood vessels is better known as ILD. This makes the tissue stiff, which, in turn, affects the breathing. The symptoms include shortness of breath, coughing, fatigue and weight loss. ILD might also be due to rheumatoid arthritis or sarcoidosis. Our doctors realize that ILD might be due to autoimmune disease, or breathing in harmful substances such as coal dust, tobacco smoke, or genetic ILD and undertake all measures to check and diagnose for any signs and symptoms.
