Oxygen in the air is essential for our life. Lung, like heart, is vital in delivering oxygenated blood to entire body. Lungs illness is often overlooked and diagnosed late unlike heart ailments. Awareness about lung illness is lacking among doctors as well as common man. Lung, like skin, is directly exposed to harmful environmental air pollutants and breathing; cough problem is increasing day by day especially in the fast growing urban area of PCMC. Lung/Respiratory illness can range from simple allergic cough, Asthma, Smoking/dust related COPD to Sleep Disorder breathing(like Snoring), Tuberculosis, Lung Cancer and deaths in ICU from Respiratory failure(ARDS, Hospital acquired Pneumonia).

Then, for an additional two to three years, they study conditions specific to the respiratory system.
