    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
    ABOUT PULMONOLOGY

    What is Pulmonology?

    Pulmonology is the branch of medicine that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions and diseases that affect the respiratory system, including the lungs, bronchial tubes, and other parts of the respiratory tract.

    Pulmonologists are doctors who specialize in the care of patients with conditions such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), lung cancer, pneumonia, and sleep apnea.

    They use a variety of diagnostic tools, such as pulmonary function tests, chest x-rays, and bronchoscopy, to evaluate and diagnose respiratory problems. They also use medical therapy and other treatments to help manage these conditions and improve the quality of life for their patients.

    What is pulmonary vascular disease?

    Pulmonary vascular disease is a term that refers to a group of disorders that affect the blood vessels in the lungs. These disorders can include conditions such as pulmonary hypertension, which is high blood pressure in the lungs, and pulmonary embolism, which is a blockage in the lung's blood vessels. These conditions can lead to difficulty breathing, fatigue, and chest pain, and can be life-threatening if not treated properly.

    What is Lung Volume?

    Lung volume refers to the amount of air that the lungs can hold at any given time. The lung volume can be measured by a pulmonary function test (PFT). There are several lung volumes, such as Tidal Volume (TV), Inspiratory Reserve Volume (IRV), Expiratory Reserve Volume (ERV), and Residual Volume (RV), which are used to evaluate lung function and diagnose various lung disorders.

    What are the most common respiratory disorders?

    The most common respiratory disorders include asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), pneumonia, lung cancer, and sleep apnea. These conditions can cause difficulty breathing, chest pain, and other symptoms and can have a significant impact on a person's quality of life.

    What is pulmonary hypertension?

    Pulmonary hypertension is a type of high blood pressure that affects the blood vessels in the lungs. It is a serious condition that can lead to difficulty breathing, fatigue, and chest pain. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including heart disease, lung disease, and certain medications.

    When should I be worried about a chronic cough?

    A chronic cough is defined as a cough that lasts for more than 8 weeks. It can be a symptom of a variety of underlying conditions, such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and lung cancer. If you have a persistent cough, it is important to see a pulmonologist for an evaluation to determine the underlying cause and appropriate treatment.

    What pulmonology issues can affect respiratory tract?

    A wide range of conditions can affect the respiratory tract, including asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), pneumonia, lung cancer, and sleep apnea. These conditions can cause difficulty breathing, chest pain, and other symptoms and can have a significant impact on a person's quality of life.

    Why is sleep study so important?

    Sleep study is important for the diagnosis and management of sleep disorders such as sleep apnea. It can also be used to evaluate other respiratory conditions, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma, that can affect sleep. A sleep study can provide valuable information about a person's sleep patterns, breathing, and other physiological functions, which can be used to develop an effective treatment plan.

    What is sleep apnea?

    Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder characterized by repeated episodes of interrupted breathing during sleep. It can cause people to wake up frequently throughout the night, resulting in poor quality of sleep and daytime fatigue. It can also lead to other health problems such as high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke. There are different types of sleep apnea, the most common is Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) which happens when the muscles in the back of the throat fail to keep the airway open, and Central sleep apnea (CSA) which happens when the brain fails to send the proper signals to the muscles that control breathing.

    What do lymph nodes have to do with pulmonary health?

    Lymph nodes play an important role in the immune system and act as filters for the lymphatic fluid in the body. In the lungs, they help to protect against infections and other pulmonary disorders. Lymph nodes can also be involved in the spread of lung cancer, and the diagnosis of lung cancer is usually confirmed by examination of the lymph nodes.

    How can the health of lungs be measured?

    The health of the lungs can be measured by a variety of tests, including pulmonary function tests (PFTs), chest X-rays, and CT scans. PFTs measure lung function by measuring the amount of air that can be inhaled and exhaled, and the rate at which it can be done. Chest X-rays and CT scans are used to detect any abnormalities or changes in the lungs, such as tumors or fluid buildup.

    What is Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or COPD?

    Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a chronic lung disease characterized by difficulty breathing, chronic cough and increased mucus production, COPD is mainly caused by long-term exposure to irritants such as cigarette smoke and air pollution. COPD makes breathing difficult because the airways in the lungs are narrowed, making it harder to move air in and out of the lungs.

    Should I be worried about Pneumonia?

    Pneumonia is a serious respiratory infection that can be caused by bacteria, viruses, or other microorganisms. It is a severe infection of the lungs that causes inflammation and fluid buildup in the lung tissue. Pneumonia can be treated with antibiotics, but it can lead to serious complications if left untreated. If you are experiencing symptoms such as fever, cough, chest pain, shortness of breath, or difficulty breathing, it is important to see a pulmonologist for an evaluation and diagnosis.

    What is Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or COPD?

COPD makes breathing difficult because the airways in the lungs are narrowed, making it harder to move air in and out of the lungs.

    How does Asthma affect pulmonary health?

    Asthma is a chronic lung disease characterized by inflammation and narrowing of the airways, making it difficult to breathe. Asthma can cause symptoms such as wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and coughing. These symptoms can be triggered by a variety of factors such as allergens, pollution, and stress. Asthma can be treated with medication, but it can lead to serious complications if left untreated. People who have asthma are at a higher risk of developing other lung problems such as pneumonia and bronchitis.
