When it comes to breathlessness how do we better diagnose and apply treatment? How do we overcome the fact that referring to a specialist can sometimes take a patient 'down the wrong route' with a condition that might not be just heart or lung related? Should we take a more perioperative approach to treatment and diagnosis?
"Nick, the patient" asks a few questions and demonstrates the misunderstanding that many sufferers might have; breathlessness is not always connected to your lungs.
"Johnny, the concerned family member" then speaks about his Mother, 84, who has recently experienced breathlessness; she didn't want to complain about it, how can we pick these issues up earlier?
This podcast is presented by Professor Monty Mythen and features contributions from; Ronan Astin, clinical consultant in respiratory medicine at UCL Hospital and finally 'the patients' Nick Margerrison and Johnny Themans.
