Disnea

St. Emlyn´s - August 3, 2014 - By Natalie May
"Breathless patients are a challenge in the ED. Shortness of breath can be a frightening presenting complaint for both patients and doctors. As always, think about the possible life threatening causes and actively rule them out. For breathless patients think especially about:
  • Pneumonia
  • Asthma/COPD
  • Pulmonary Embolism
  • Acute left ventricular failure
  • Pneumothorax"
