Pulmonology / Critical Care Medicine

A pulmonary disease specialist, or pulmonologist, focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the respiratory system, including the lungs, airways, thoracic cavity and chest   wall. Because pulmonologists have expertise in respiratory failure and interventions such as mechanical ventilation, they often oversee intensive care units in hospitals.

Critical care specialists, also called intensivists, treat people who need advanced monitoring and care, and most work in hospital-based settings in intensive care units. Critical care specialists often specialize in pulmonology as well. Their expertise allows them to provide specialized care for people who have experienced major surgery or trauma, as well as those with other critical medical needs.
