Shortness of breath

Wed, 2018-04-18 09:39 -- 01418635

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

Shortness of breath means that you are struggling to breathe in air, and that you have to take more breaths.

For example: When walking to the shop you feel you have to stop to breathe and rest.

Heart and lung problems are usually the cause of this shortness of breath.

WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Seek help from a nurse, health care worker or doctor as soon as possible if you are short of breath.
