English term or phrase: dyspnea
Definition from Mayo Clinic:
Shortness of breath — known medically as dyspnea — is often described as an intense tightening in the chest, air hunger, difficulty breathing, breathlessness or a feeling of suffocation. Very strenuous exercise, extreme temperatures, obesity and higher altitude all can cause shortness of breath in a healthy person. Outside of these examples, shortness of breath is likely a sign of a medical problem.

Example sentence(s):
  • Timing of dyspnea may be one of the most important hallmarks of COVID-19 coronavirus infection, especially for clinicians seeing patients in an ambulatory setting, experts argued. MedPage Today
  • Admission to the intensive care unit and mechanical ventilation should be considered in patients with dyspnea and diffuse radiological findings. National Center for Biotechnology Info.
  • Intensive care and airway management are indicated for patients displaying signs of respiratory failure (e.g., dyspnea with hypoxemia, respiratory rate > 30/min). AMBOSS
