Treatment for Shortness of Breath
Helping Patients in Paris, Greenville and Beyond Receive Necessary Oxygen
Shortness of breath, or feeling “winded,” is also known as dyspnea. It occurs when you struggle to draw a full breath. It can feel like you have recently run a sprint or a completed a strenuous activity, even if you have not. The feeling of not being able to get sufficient air into the lungs might persist if you are experiencing shortness of breath.
Symptoms include a tight sensation in the chest, feeling the need to breathe more quickly, or feeling like you cannot get enough oxygen.
Potential causes of dyspnea include:
- Allergic reactions
- Blood loss
- Heart failure
- Low blood pressure
- Collapsed lung
- Hiatal hernia
