A pulmonologist is a doctor that identifies and treats diseases of the respiratory system-- the lungs and other organs that aid you breathe. For some fairly short-lasting health problems that influence your lungs, like the influenza or pneumonia, you may be able to get all the care you require from your routine physician. But if your coughing, shortness of breath, or other symptoms don't get better, you might require to see a pulmonologist. Interior medication is the type of treatment that handles adult health, and pulmonology is one of its many fields. Pulmonologists concentrate on the respiratory system and diseases that affect it. A pulmonologist can deal with many type of lung troubles. Pneumonia, an infection that makes the air sacs in your lungs swollen and loaded with pus; COVID-19 pneumonia, which can cause extreme breathing problems and respiratory failure. A pulmonologist's training starts with a medical school level. They do an interior medication residency at a health center for 3 years to get more experience. After their residency, medical professionals can get certified in inner medicine by the American Board of Internal Medicine. Some physicians get even more training in a disease like asthma or COPD.
