If you notice signs of a chronic condition or suspect a developing respiratory problem, contact your physician for more instructions or a referral to a pulmonary specialist.
With asthma or COPD, if you experience continuous shortness of breath for 24-48 hours that is not addressed by current medication, contact your physician. Early treatment is better than late treatment. Contacting your physician may eliminate the need for hospitalization.
You can get more information on respiratory conditions from the American Lung Association.
