BREATHLESSNESS DURING DIFFICULT EFFORTS

Breathlessness is shortness of breath or feeling like one cannot breathe sufficiently. Although it may occur during difficult efforts like running, going on stairs etc. But if it is also associated with any of the symptom of OSA then it needs to be evaluated thoroughly for proper management. A survey shows that any patient who has snoring and exertional dyspnoea will be suffering from OSA and ultimately end up as a cardiac patient.
