What is a Respiratory (Chest) Doctor?

A Respiratory physician specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the lungs and breathing tubes.

When to see a Respiratory Doctor?

You may need to see a respiratory (chest) doctor if you have been diagnosed with a lung condition or if you are experiencing breathing problems due to cancer, asthma, pneumonia, chronic lung disease and other respiratory conditions. Respiratory doctors are specialised in performing bronchoscopy and can request tests such as lung function tests, CT scans and blood gases to help diagnosis. Respiratory doctors can treat a number of common conditions including COPD (smoking lung disease), asthma, fibrosis, lung cancer, bronchiectasis and asbestos-related lung disease.
