History. Ask about symptoms of wheeze
Orthopnoeaand paroxysmal nocturnal dypsnoea
Examination. Inspect for
Percussion and auscultation of chest may suggest
Investigations. Leucocytosis may indicate active infection, and polycythaemia chronic hypoxaemia.
ABG should be performed in patients who are dyspnoeic with minimal exertion and the results interpreted in relation to PIO2.
Preoperative hypoxia or carbon dioxide retention indicates the possibility of postoperative respiratory failure.
May require a period of assisted ventilation on the Intensive Care Unit.
