Are You Following The Right Pulmonology Influencers?

One popular doctor on the Twitter-now-X platform is Dr. Ravi Kalhan, a pulmonologist, who responds to burning questions about lungs. And guess what? He has more than 923,000 views and counting on one of his videos. More than 1,200 comments accompanied his post on YouTube.

You’re busy.

So, when you’re trying to stay informed about the latest trends and innovations in pulmonology, it helps to check in with key influencers and thought leaders on social media.

X — formerly known as Twitter — serves as one important conduit for essential information these days and is heavily used by physicians and patients alike.

Sometimes it pays to see who others are watching.

For example, one popular doctor on the Twitter-now-X platform is Dr. Ravi Kalhan, a pulmonologist, who responds to burning questions about lungs. And guess what? He has more than 923,000 views and counting on one of his videos. More than 1,200 comments accompanied his post on YouTube.

Equipped with balloons, plastic bags and other props, Kalhan, from The Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University, answers a wide range of questions. What happens to your lungs if you vape? How do lungs know the difference between oxygen and carbon dioxide? Does lung cancer only happen because of smoking? Do smokers do better at high altitudes than non-smokers, because their lungs are “used to it?”

Where Can You Find Connections?

For a broader look at social media in the medical world, the Healthcare Hashtag Project describes itself as a platform that connects doctors, caregivers, patient advocates and other providers to relevant conversations and communities.

Because it is searchable, this platform makes it easy to identify specialties, as well as the conferences, diseases and other categories within them, whether it’s pulmonology, ENT, urology, gastroenterology or another area of expertise.

Contributors to the Healthcare Hashtag Project include the government, journals and the media, medical societies, academia and research, and pharma and medical device companies.
