Respiratory Medicine (Lung) - Overview

What is respiratory medicine?

Respiratory (or pulmonary) medicine is a clinical area of specialty that treats medical conditions related to the airways and lungs. Respiratory issues can range from routine cases like asthma, bronchitis and allergic rhinitis to complex conditions like lung cancer, tuberculosis and chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD).

Your doctor will develop a specific treatment plan based on your diagnosis to treat your respiratory condition.
