Prevention of dyspnea

Prevention of dyspnea

Preventing dyspnea involves managing the underlying cause and avoiding certain triggers that cause shortness of breath. Dyspnea may not be entirely preventable, but you can take steps to lower your risk:14 Don't smoke: Smoking is a major risk factor for shortness of breath and respiratory diseases. Consider smoking cessation programs or talking to a healthcare provider to help you quit. Avoid exposure to irritants: Environmental irritants, such as air pollution and chemicals, can trigger dyspnea. Consider wearing a mask to filter out irritants if you work in an environment with chemicals, dust, or pollutants. Exercise regularly: Regular exercise can help improve cardiovascular and respiratory functioning. Maintain a healthy weight: Managing your weight can prevent you from experiencing obesity-related shortness of breath, called obesity hypoventilation syndrome (OHS). Manage underlying conditions: If you have a health condition that can cause dyspnea, such as asthma or heart disease, work with a healthcare provider to manage your condition.
