What is Pulmonary Medicine?
Pulmonary medicine is a sub-specialty of internal medicine that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of conditions that affect the lungs and respiratory tract. Here are some of the most common conditions that our partnered pulmonologists diagnose and treat:
- Pulmonary Hypertension
- Type of high blood pressure that affects the arteries in the lungs and the right side of your heart.
- COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease)
- Chronic inflammatory lung disease that causes obstructed airflow from the lungs and is most commonly caused by:
- Chronic Bronchitis
- Increased cough and mucus production caused by inflammation of the airways. Considered chronic when a person coughs and produces excess mucus most days during three months in a year, for two years in a row.
- Damage of the air sacs and/or collapse of the smallest breathing tubes in the lungs.
- Shortness of Breath (Dyspnea)
- Often described as an intense tightening in the chest, air hunger, difficulty breathing, breathlessness or a feeling of suffocation. Can be caused by a variety of issues.
- Chronic disease involving the airways in the lungs being inflamed restricting air flow.
- Sleep Apnea
- Common and serious sleep disorder that causes someone to stop breathing during sleep. The airway repeatedly becomes blocked, limiting the amount of air that reaches the lungs.
