Shortness of breath, also known as dyspnea. It is a common symptom that can indicate underlying health issues; or simply result from physical exertion. At Shanikrupa heartcare centre we recognize the importance of understanding the causes, symptoms, and treatment options for dyspnea. Which help individuals better manage their respiratory health.

What is shortness of breath?

Breathlessness is also known as dyspnea. It is a sensation of feeling unable to breathe deeply enough or get enough air into the lungs. It can occur suddenly or develop gradually. Often indicating underlying health issues such as respiratory or cardiovascular problems.

Shortness of breath causes:

1. Respiratory Conditions:
  • Chronic respiratory diseases such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and pulmonary fibrosis can cause persistent shortness of breath due to compromised lung function.
2. Cardiovascular Issues:
  • Heart conditions like heart failure, coronary artery disease, and arrhythmias can lead to inadequate blood flow and oxygen delivery, resulting in breathlessness.
3. Physical Exertion:
  • Engaging in strenuous activities or exercises beyond one’s fitness level can temporarily cause shortness of breath as the body tries to meet increased oxygen demands.
4. Anemia:
  • Low red blood cell count or hemoglobin levels can impair oxygen transport to tissues, leading to feelings of breathlessness.


  1. Rapid or shallow breathing
  2. Difficulty breathing deeply
  3. Feeling like you can’t get enough air
  4. Tightness or discomfort in the chest
  5. Wheezing or whistling sounds when breathing

What are ozone therapy benefits in Breathlessness?
Ozone therapy offers potential benefits for dyspnea. It can help improve oxygenation, reduce inflammation in the respiratory system. and enhance overall lung function, potentially leading to a reduction in breathlessness.

What is the main reason of shortness of breath?
Breathlessness can result from a variety of conditions, including allergies, heart problems, infections, lung issues, and panic attacks.

How do I know if my shortness of breath is serious?
You experience sudden or severe breathlessness, chest pain, dizziness, fainting, or bluish lips or nails? Seek immediate medical attention as it may indicate a serious underlying condition.

Does anxiety causes shortness of dyspnea?
