How we can help

Receive expert shortness of breath treatment online

Shortness of breath—also called dyspnea—is a sensation of difficult or labored breathing, often unexpected. This condition can be acute (sudden and short-lived) or chronic and can stem from a number of causes. The severity of shortness of breath can range from mildly uncomfortable to life-threatening. If you regularly perform strenuous exercise, you might be familiar with a feeling of temporary shortness of breath. If you have trouble breathing while resting or performing everyday tasks which should not normally cause any problems, there may be another underlying cause and it might be advisable to seek immediate medical attention.

Chronic shortness of breath may be caused by underlying health conditions affecting the heart and/or the lungs, such as asthma, COPD, bronchitis, emphysema, heart arrhythmia, and obesity. Acute shortness of breath can be caused by all of the above as well as pneumonia and other pulmonary (lung) infections which develop from respiratory illnesses such as COVID-19. Anxiety-induced panic attacks can also cause a person to have trouble breathing.

Certain actions and lifestyle changes may reduce your risk of developing severe or chronic shortness of breath. Recommended preventative practices include:

  • develop or maintain healthy habits for your sleep, diet, hydration, and exercise manage your stress levels
  • know your healthy limits for physical exertion, especially at extreme elevations and temperatures
  • avoid exposure to tobacco smoke (including second-hand) as much as possible
  • reduce exposure to pollutants, allergens, and environmental toxins
  • if you are overweight or obese, try to lose weight and consult with a physician
  • if you have underlying conditions such as asthma or COPD, consult with a physician and follow their recommended treatment plan carefully

Mild cases of shortness of breath may be treatable without medication through home remedies such as deep breathing exercises, pursed lip breathing exercises, relaxation routines, and inhaling steam. Moderate to severe cases of shortness of breath may require professional medical treatment. Commonly prescribed drugs for treatment include bronchodilators such as ipratropium bromide, which relieves symptoms by dilating the lung passages. If you suffering from shortness of breath, try scheduling an online doctor visit for shortness of breath to get access to rapid assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and even prescriptions for shortness of breath. In an emergency case, call 9-1-1 immediately.
