Treatment for Dyspnea

Shortness of breath is one of the most common health problem symptoms usually associated with lung or heart disease. If you have ever felt as if you are feeling shortness of breath and out of breath, you are most likely to experience a condition described as “air hunger” or medically known as dyspnea. Dyspnea causes you to have a breathing problem. This condition can also temporarily happen after an intense workout, which can be very uncomfortable. Dyspnea can vary from mild and temporary to severe and habitual. The treatment for dyspnea needs to be diagnosed first and foremost--although sometimes it can be difficult to identify what causes it.

Breathing problems can happen due to over-exercise. In cases of people that are experiencing dyspnea, they may experience the following signs and symptoms

  • Shortness of breath after doing physical activities or due to a health problem.
  • Feeling strained and drained as a result of breathing difficulties. 
  • Heavy breathing after a light or normal activity that you usually do
  • Chest tightening 
  • Wheezing and coughing with shallow breathing.
  • Heart palpitations.

Your health is not always straightforwardly related to being a cause of dyspnea. However, it is usually related to health problems and a sign of concerning health issues. The most common causes of shortness of breath are asthma, heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), interstitial lung disease, pneumonia, and anxiety.

Relieve Your Shortness of Breath

The best way to treat dyspnea or shortness of breath is to identify the cause. Your doctor or nurse will measure the steps to figure out the best ways to avoid, prevent, or minimize your breathing problem. You may get a medication recommended to relieve dyspnea, or you may be suggested non-medicated treatment such as the use of device-guided breathing. 

WellO2’s breathing exercise device is an exceptional intervention that guides respiratory rates into a therapeutic range which can prolong the expiratory phase that can improve hyperinflation. WellO2 is also a healthier non-medicated device that will effectively help  reduce the symptoms naturally by providing supplemental oxygen that your body needs. 

The way this device works is it provides warm steam that can eventually clear out your airways making it easier for you to breathe. People who suffer dyspnea are instructed to do breathing exercises using this device to offer gradual to instant relief from shortness of breath.

If you or your loved one has a breathing problem, you will benefit from the WellO2 device as it allows you to breathe properly when experiencing shortness of breath. The reason for dyspnea occurrence is due to “air trapping” caused by narrowed airway which is unable to allow the lungs to empty after each breath resulting in hyperinflation. With the help of this device, people will be able to reach their lungs’ full capacity to fill in with oxygen and clears out carbon dioxide from the system.
