During the fall and winter season or in very dry weather, respiratory crises are more common, especially for those who already suffer from such problems, such as people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and smokers.

A Pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in respiratory diseases from the trachea to the lungs, and such professional should always be sought for symptoms such as prolonged coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath.

If you need to, schedule a visit to a Pulmonologist at a DaVita Serviços Médicos' Unit.
