Shortness of Breath

Not being able to get enough air while taking a breath is a very disturbing feeling. It can make you feel like you’re suffocating. The medical term for shortness of breath is dyspnea, and it’s a symptom that you must not ignore because it may be a sign of serious cardiac or pulmonary problems. Untreated, these conditions can worsen quickly and become life-threatening.
When you come to the award-winning cardiology practice with difficulty breathing, you’re in the hands of the best cardiology team in the New York area. Your shortness of breath doctor evaluates you for any possible cardiac causes for your shortness of breath. If your dyspnea isn’t caused by cardiac problems, further evaluation needs to be done, possibly for pulmonary conditions.

Symptoms of Dyspnea
Dyspnea is characterized by being unable to catch your breath. Sensations commonly associated with this condition include:

Tightness in your chest
Labored breathing
Rapid, shallow breathing
Wheezing
Heart palpitations

Difficulty breathing may hit you suddenly and without warning. Dyspnea can also become a long-term problem. If you experience trouble breathing on a regular basis, pay attention to when it happens, how often it happens and whether there are any triggers that cause your episodes of dyspnea. This history helps your doctor arrive at a firm diagnosis, especially when coupled with a thorough physical exam. If your breathing symptoms are sudden and severe, call 9-1-1, as you may need urgent medical attention.
