Imaging tests
Pulmonologists perform various imaging tests to examine different structures in the lungs and chest. These tests help in finding any structural abnormalities that are causing a person’s respiratory symptoms.
pulmonologists may use the following imaging tests:
Chest X-rays: Pulmonologists take Chest X-rays to monitor chest areas that consist of lungs. They examine the overall health of the lungs and check for infections such as pneumonia or lung masses such as cancer.
Chest CT scans: CT scans help pulmonologists in finding any signs of emphysema, lung cancer, and pleural effusion using chest CT scans.
Chest ultrasound: Pulmonologists perform this type of test to examine the structures inside the chest and the pleural space. It is the area between the lungs and the chest wall.
Bronchial provocation test
Pulmonologists perform bronchial provocation tests to evaluate the sensitivity of the patient lungs. There are mainly three types of tests in this
Irritant challenge: In this procedure, your pulmonologist exposes you to an asthma trigger. Asthma triggers can be smoke or a chemical. It helps pulmonologists to study and examine how your airways react.
Exercise challenge: Pulmonologists conduct this test by making you exercise on a treadmill or stationary bike. They will observe and study how your airways reach during this procedure.
Methacholine challenge: In this process your pulmonologists make you inhale increasing doses of the chemical methacholine. It causes airways to constrict with low doses among people with asthma and with high doses indicate a lack of asthma. If this test fails then your pulmonologists look for another cause of symptoms.

Interstitial Lung Diseases include a group of disorders that cause progressive scarring of the lung tissue. Which leads to complications in breathing for the patient. Patients may suffer from the inability to breathe or lack of oxygen in the bloodstream. Most of these disorders develop gradually but very few disorders occur abruptly.

Most of the time lung scarring is irreversible but it can be slowed down with the help of the right medication. Kamineni Hospitals has a dedicated clinic with a highly specialized team of physicians who are experts in ILD.
Medical specialists in Interventional pulmonology perform endoscopy procedures to diagnose and treat various conditions related to the lungs, airway disorders, and chest. Interventional pulmonologists use various tools to perform these procedures. To perform such complex surgical procedures pulmonologists need to undergo extra training and be highly knowledgeable.
Pulmonologists perform lung transplants only when all other treatment options are unsuccessful. If the patient’s lung condition is in the worst state even after trying lifestyle changes and treatments then a lung transplant is the only option to restore the health.

A lung transplant is a surgical procedure that involves replacing diseased or failed lungs with a healthy donor lung. Here are some of the diseases that will damage your lung condition enough to require a transplant. Diseases like

  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Emphysema
  • Pulmonary fibrosis
  • Pulmonary Hypertension
  • Sarcoidosis
Pulmonary Hypertension occurs when high pressure builds up in the pulmonary arteries. As the name implies it refers to the high pressure in the blood vessels. Which causes breathing difficulties in patients. Blood Vessels of the lungs are capable of handling high pressures and as a result, it leads further complex issues.

Due to this, the walls of blood vessels become thicker and more constrained. Which forces the heart to work extra harder to push blood to other parts of the body. Blood carries oxygen to other body parts, so low circulation of oxygen leads to further complications. Pulmonary Hypertension diseases can be difficult to diagnose and can be complicated to cure.
Sleep-disordered breathing covers a wide range of sleep disorders. It includes heavy snoring, increased resistance to airflow, marked reduction in airflow, and other breathing problems. A potentially serious sleep disorder involves where breathing repeatedly stops and starts during sleeping.

Several factors contribute to these types of sleep disorders such as age and obesity. Patients may experience symptoms like excessive daytime sleepiness, insomnia, nightmares, sleep deprivation, snoring, breathing through the mouth, or loud breathing. Pulmonologists at Kamineni Hospital provide the most effective treatment for patients suffering from sleep disorders.
