Management and Treatment of the condition and complications if left untreated

Medications: To widen patients’ airways and treat inflammation, pulmonologists can suggest some medications such as bronchodilators, oral steroids, and antibiotics. Pulmonary Rehabilitation: Physicians guide patients in various strategies and activities during pulmonary rehabilitation. Patients who practice these see an improvement in their body’s oxygen levels. Supplemental Oxygen: Patients who have major respiratory issues require assistance from a constant oxygen supply at home. In certain instances, they require more oxygen only after exertion. Nutrition Therapy: This cannot be used as a stand-alone therapy for certain illnesses. However, doctors pay close attention to their patients’ dietary needs. It speeds up their healing process. Lung transplant is the last option for those with the end stage of a lung disease.

Is the treatment covered under insurance?

Health insurances cover the cost of treatment. The limit on claim amount depends on your policy. Cashless or reimbursement depends on your policy, TPA and affiliations of the hospital with the insurance company.

How is the recovery after surgery?
