Breathlessness, physical activity and sustainability of healthcare - letter

Frances Mortimer's picture

Only just came across this letter by Nick Hopkinson and colleague to the European Respiratory Journal last January, highlighting the importance of paying attention to breathlessness in midlife - both for early diagnosis of respiratory and other disease but also as a marker of physical deconditioning. Promoting & supporting physical activity in breathless individuals can prevent them from going on to develop several long-term conditions.
