Pulmonology involves the diagnosis and treatment of lung diseases and diseases of the respiratory tract. Treatments for these diseases and disorders are either medical or surgical. Surgical procedures are performed by thoracic surgeon and will follow an evaluation by a pulmonologist. Medical treatments are used more frequently and are in either inhalation or oral forms. Oxygen therapy, for patients with emphysema or pulmonary fibrosis, are also managed by pulmonologists, as are patients on mechanical ventilation.
