Pulmonology is the medical study of the respiratory tract, which involves the lungs and bronchial tubes, as well as other areas within the chest. Lawsuits and claims requiring a pulmonologist expert witness include issues with healthcare insurance, a misdiagnosis, unforeseen side effects, a surgical error, or negligence. Patients in need of pulmonology treatments are often treated for life-threatening illnesses and/or conditions.
Pulmonology expert witnesses might be skilled as thoracic surgeons, as well as other types of respiratory-related surgical critical care. Additional ailments associated with pulmonology include lung disease, sarcoidosis, pulmonary fibrosis, asthma, emphysema, tuberculosis, pulmonary hypertension, congestive heart failure, pulmonary embolism, hypoxemia, respiratory disease, chest infections, respiratory failure, cystic fibrosis, and pneumonia. Medical professionals trained in pulmonology are licensed and/or certified in specialized areas, such as pediatric pulmonology, internal medicine, pulmonary medicine, geriatrics, sleep medicine, critical care medicine, and fluoroscopy, in addition to other areas of medicine and treatment. Pulmonologist may also assist in lawsuits related to an injury or chemical exposure, as toxicology may be the cause of respiratory ailments or claims regarding a harmful workplace environment within the industrial field.
