Millions of people around the world live with breathlessness due to underlying conditions. It’s a problem that’s rarely recognised or even discussed, yet has a major impact on their lives.

But people who suffer from chronic breathlessness could in many cases manage their breathlessness at home. Here at Hull York Medical School, we are carrying out research into breathlessness to positively impact the lives of those living with the symptom.

Please do read our articles in The Conversation, the European Respiratory Journal, the British Journal of General Practice and Heart Matters if you would like to find out more about how breathlessness affects people's lives and how clinicians can help their patients to cope better with it.
