About Dr. John Peters, MD

As an expert pulmonologist, Dr. John Peters, MD is skilled in treating respiratory tract diseases. The respiratory tract comprises of respiratory muscles like diaphragm and airways like trachea and lungs. He is trained to evaluate, treat and avert respiratory illnesses. Pulmonologists have a deeper understanding of the respiratory diseases and the damage they cause. While few respiratory diseases occur in the respiratory tract i.e. primary, others are an extension of a different condition i.e. secondary. Pulmonologists have the flexibility to work both independently or as a part of a larger team. Some of the conditions commonly treated by pulmonologists are lung cancer, interstitial lung disease (ILD), asthma, bronchitis and pleural effusion.

Pulmonologists use multiple tests to diagnose respiratory diseases. These include imaging studies, physical examination, respiratory test, exploratory surgery and lab tests. Pulmonologists leverage different treatments to cure their patients. Some of the common treatments they rely on: Chest physiotherapy: Using mechanical techniques to unblock the airways. Corticosteroids: Administered orally or by inhalation, works by minimising inflammation. Oxygen therapy: Providing additional oxygen to counteract breathing troubles via nasal prongs or face masks.
