Shortness of Breath

Welcome to the induction module on Shortness of breath. This is a very common presentation to the ED with a variety of possible causes.

 

In the department we have COPD and Asthma acute management protocols to simplify the prescribing process but make sure you are applying them to the right patients. 

Watch this and answer the questions on the quiz below the video. Feel free to scroll back through the video if you want to find the answers.

We have included some further resources on Shortness of breath below the questions but these are not required to pass the module.
