    Pneumonia should be suspected in patients with tachypnea, tachycardia, dyspnea, or lung findings suggestive of pneumonia, and radiography is warranted.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] However, patients who complain of dyspnea should have pulse oximetry to rule out hypoxemia.[merckmanuals.com] Differential Diagnosis of Acute Bronchitis The acute bronchitis must be differentiated from other diseases that may cause cough, dyspnea and wheezing.

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    It is likely that obesity modifies the clinical picture of COPD because of its effects on the perception of dyspnea and exercise tolerance.[dx.doi.org] […] testing. 16 An accurate diagnosis is important because dyspnea related to other mechanisms or diseases may require a different therapeutic strategy.[dx.doi.org] Obesity is a risk factor for dyspnea but not for airflow obstruction.
