Shortness of Breath (SOB)

NOTE — Don’t get thrown by the abbreviation “SOB.” It’s universally standard in medical charting (likely one reason we don’t want patients to read their charts on their own). Select from below:

Life-Threatening SOB (we always do a rapid assessment)

Acute SOB (lasting 1 – 2 weeks, maybe 3 – 4 weeks at the most)

Chronic SOB (maybe a few weeks, could be months or more)
