Pneumology: prevention and treatment of lung and bronchial diseases

A comprehensive pneumology service is available at UPMC Institute for Health Chianciano Terme. Pneumology is a branch of internal medicine dealing with diseases of the respiratory tract. Pneumology can diagnose, rule out, or monitor lung and bronchial diseases, and identify the most appropriate therapy.

A pneumology consult is recommended to monitor a full-blown disease or to ascertain the nature of symptoms like respiratory distress, pain and/or chest tightness, shortness of breath at rest, sleep apnea, and persistent cough. In pneumology prevention is key. A consult or screening is strongly recommended to assess the lungs and bronchi of individuals who due to their lifestyle (smoking, exposure to harmful substances and dust) or family history are at a higher risk of developing respiratory diseases.
