English term or phrase: upper respiratory tract symptom
Definition from MedLinePlus:
The major passages and structures of the upper respiratory tract include the nose or nostrils, nasal cavity, mouth, throat (pharynx), and voice box (larynx). The respiratory system is lined with a mucous membrane that secretes mucus. The mucus traps smaller particles like pollen or smoke. Hairlike structures called cilia line the mucous membrane and move the particles trapped in the mucus out of the nose. Inhaled air is moistened, warmed, and cleansed by the tissue that lines the nasal cavity.

Example sentence(s):
  • In SARS, there are hardly any upper respiratory tract symptoms, and viral units are rarely present outside the lungs. This fact initially took the focus away from continuing to look for ACE2 receptors in the nose. Medical News Today
  • We've been trying to understand what risk factors increase ... the severity; and it's still confusing because some people, even older people sometimes, will have a very mild upper respiratory tract symptom or syndrome. ... Whereas other, you know, younger people may end up being quite ill. WBUR
  • First, prioritise Covid-19 tests for everyone with diminished lung function, even if they do not meet the criteria of having pneumonia, prolonged upper respiratory tract symptoms, or a contact history with affected people or places. Today

simptomi gornjeg dišnog sustava

Definition from medicinski priručnik:
Dišni sustav započinje nosom i ustima i nastavlja se preko dišnih puteva do pluća, u kojima se kisik iz zraka izmjenjuje s ugljičnim dioksidom iz tjelesnih tkiva.
Među najčešće simptome dišnih bolesti spadaju kašalj, nestašica daha ili zaduha (dispneja), bol u prsištu, zviždanje pri disanju, hripanje pri disanju, iskašljavanje krvi, plavkasto obojenje kože i sluznica (cijanoza), batićasti prsti i zatajenje disanja.

Example sentence(s):
  • Prirodna otpornost organizma je uz niske temperature znatno smanjena, a time povećana sklonost akutnim infekcijama gornjeg dijela dišnog sustava. - zdravstveni portal  
  • Srećom, najčešće su blage infekcije gornjeg dišnog sustava uzrokovane respiratornim virusima, kao što je obična prehlada. - zdravstveni portal
