Medications, oxygen therapy, pulmonary rehabilitation, and lung transplant are some of the treatments for pulmonary fibrosis. Dr. Javier Perez-Fernandez, Critical Care and Pulmonary Medicine Physician with Baptist Hospital and West Kendall Baptist Hospital, says there are new medications to treat patients with pulmonary fibrosis and they are very useful to treat people and make them improve some aspects of their disease. "There is more than one type, and certainly you need to be evaluated to see which one of the drugs is good for you."
