What is pneumology?

Pneumology is the medical specialty in charge ofstudy of diseases of the respiratory system.

The pulmonologist is the doctor trained to diagnose and treat the respiratory diseases.

What do we deal with?

cancer of lung
diseases respiratory associated with tobacco: lung disease obstructive chronic (COPD), emphysema.
Pathology of are: sleep apnea syndrome.
Airway diseases: asthma bronchial
Infectious diseases: pneumonias bacterial, bronchiectasis, tuberculosis.
Work-related illnesses: asthma professional, pneumoconiosis.
Diseases of the pleura: pleural effusion, pleuritis.
diseases inflammatory pulmonary
Smoking cessation.

How do we deal?

The pulse oximetry
It is a non-invasive method that, using photoelectric methods, allows the determination of the oxygen saturation percentage of the hemoglobin in a patient's blood.

It is the study that measures lung capacity and evaluates bronchial function, fundamental data for the diagnosis of diseases such as asthma and COPD.

The polygraph
It allows us to study sleep apnea at home, with a small device that does not cause discomfort.

Prevention of respiratory diseases

Keep up to date with the vaccines included in the national vaccination schedule.
Ventilate the environment every day.
Maintain proper hand hygiene.
Do not smoke and keep the environment smoke-free.
Cover your mouth when you sneeze or sneeze.
Eat foods that contain vitamin C.

Frequently asked questions

What is a BFC?
BFC or bronchofibroscopy is the complementary study that must be requested when you want to analyze a lung injury. With the endoscope we can visualize the inside of the airway, perform a wash to look for cells and microbes, and perform biopsies.
What is COPD?
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or COPD is a progressive disease that causes difficulty breathing. The word progressive indicates that the disease gets worse over time.
What is idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis?
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a debilitating disease characterized by progressive scarring of the lungs, which makes breathing increasingly difficult. IPF belongs to a family of approximately 200 related diseases called interstitial lung diseases (ILDs)
What is sleep apnea syndrome?
During sleep our muscles relax, but those in the throat partially retain their tone to keep the air flow open and make breathing possible. In the case of some people these muscles relax too much and cause a narrowing of the airways.

Sometimes this narrowing is so great that it causes a partial or total reduction in airflow to the lungs. This condition is called obstructive sleep apnea syndrome or OSAS.
