Shortness of breath (dyspnea) treatment

For shortness of breath, the goal at Northwell is to provide the support you need to relieve your symptoms and treat any underlying illness. The palliative care team coordinates your care with your physician or surgeon to manage your treatment in a comprehensive plan.

Depending on your individual case, physicians may recommend one or more of the following treatment options:

  • Antibiotics to treat lung infections
  • Antianxiety medications to manage anxiety and panic
  • Opioids or other pain medications to reduce pain and ease breathing
  • Oxygen to help with breathing
  • Bronchodilator medications to open airways for easier breathing
