Pulmonology training itinerary
Pneumology deals with the physiology and pathology of the respiratory system. Its principle purpose is the study of the aetiology, epidemiology, physiopathology, diagnosis, treatment, prevention and rehabilitation of respiratory diseases. The therapeutic and diagnostic principles of respiratory medicine are similar to those of internal medicine, although there are differences that clearly distinguish each of the specialisations. The most important difference is their reliance on and mastery of specific techniques. Diagnostic techniques include lung function analysis, respiratory or thoracic endoscopy, polysomnography and cardiorespiratory polygraphy; while mechanical rehabilitation and ventilation are used therapeutically.
