Shortness of Breath

Shortness of breath may have a number of causes such as anemia or allergies. Research shows, however, that it's commonly linked to heart and lung problems.

It's important to know when to take shortness of breath seriously, and in the case of coronary artery disease, a person may experience shortness of breath that can seem like a lung problem. It typically occurs because the body can't transport oxygen-rich blood back to the heart, which can leave a person gasping for more air.2Joy, Kevin. ‘Why Does Pulmonary Hypertension Cause Shortness of Breath?’ Health & Wellness Topics, Health Tips & Disease Prevention, 1 Aug. 2017, healthblog.uofmhealth.org/heart-health/why-does-pulmonary-hypertension-cause-shortness-of-breath
