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.
