Understanding respiratory related symptoms and features.
Symptoms may affect multiple parts of the body. Understanding which part of the body a symptom affects, can help us to better understand the potential underlying causes of a symptom, including a rare disease or genetic syndrome.
The respiratory system is made up of the lungs, airways and blood vessels. These parts of the system work together to help the body breathe: they control the process of respiration including the inhalation of oxygen and the exhalation of carbon dioxide.
Symptoms affecting the respiratory can not for the most part be seen with the naked eye. Diagnosing a respiratory related symptom may involve different tests and assessments, both subjective and objective.
Symptoms relating to the respiratory system will affect an individual’s ability to breathe effectively and may require medical intervention.
What is Respiratory Distress?
Respiratory distress is objectively observable as the physical or emotional consequences from the experience of dyspnea (difficulty breathing).
The physical presentation of respiratory distress is generally referred to as labored breathing, while the sensation of respiratory distress is called shortness of breath or dyspnea.
What should I do next?
In some instances, respiratory distress may be one of the features of a rare disease or genetic syndrome. In this case fast, targeted genetic analysis can give you a more accurate diagnosis.
