Pulmonology, also known as pneumology, is the branch of clinical medicine that studies diseases of the respiratory organs: the trachea, bronchi, lungs and pleurae. It is generally considered a branch of internal medicine, although it is closely related to intensive care or critical care medicine when dealing with patients requiring mechanical ventilation. Pulmonology is referred to as chest medicine or respiratory medicine in some countries. However, chest medicine is strictly speaking an inclusive term which pertains to the treatment of diseases of the thoracic cavity and contains the fields of pulmonology, thoracic surgery and intensive care medicine.
