How is paediatric pulmonology important?
Cases of paediatric pulmonology involve very delicate and critical treatments and often are brought to the doctors as emergency cases. Some paediatric pulmonological diseases or issues are congenital while the others can develop later in life. However, both kinds of lung problems need to be treated immediately.
A pulmonology expert who deals with lung problems in adults might not grasp the condition or the severity of a lung condition in a child. S/he might not be familiar with the kinds of disease an infant might have. Moreover, children cannot talk. Even older children might not be able to express themselves clearly. So, it all comes down to the doctor to make a note of the symptoms, do a physical test and send for clinical tests. And all of these need to be done urgently and there is no space for a mistake or a false trial.
This is why, pulmonologists require special training and need to be highly experienced in the field of paediatric pulmonology.
