As is the case anywhere in the world, a lung specialist in Coimbatore will always consider, and take into account the above symptoms during a consultation for arriving at a diagnosis.
How does a Doctor check your lungs:
As is the case anywhere in the world a lung specialist in Coimbatore will first of all, look at your eyes, finger nails, tongue and conduct a general survey of the body before he gets to the chest. After the general survey, he will “look” at the chest to look for the position of the normal impulse and also look for other visible abnormal impulses etc. He will then feel the chest with the palm of the hand to detect any abnormal impulses, he may then look at the right side of your neck to look for the venous pressure in the right heart.
Finally, he will then use a stethoscope to listen to the sounds of the heart and the air entry into and out of the lungs. The heart normally has two sounds called the first and second heart sounds. Any additional sounds or murmurs may be a variant of normal or be abnormal themselves. Your doctor is the best judge to decide about this. After listening to your lungs your doctor may feel the size of your liver (in the abdomen) to complete the physical examination. He / she may then go on to request additional tests like Blood tests, Sputum culture, Spirometry, XRays, CT Scans etc to arrive at a complete diagnosis.
