Understanding Breathlessness in Asthma
Understanding patient’s breathlessness and its underlying condition is a common problem in the respiratory clinic.
Professor Stephen Fowler explores the possible causes for breathlessness which might manifest in a comorbidity of asthma rather than asthma itself, and provides guidance on what to look out for in making a diagnosis. He proposes asking the key questions: “Does the patient have asthma and if not, what could it be?” and/or “Is asthma causing the symptoms and if not, what is?”
