By understanding the common symptoms of respiratory conditions, you can be better prepared to seek timely medical care. A doctor can help diagnose your respiratory condition through visual assessment, conversation and tests to determine an appropriate treatment.
Though symptoms are issue-specific, there are some common symptoms we can look for that point to an respiratory condition existing. These include:
If you experience any prolonged or worsening symptoms, it's important to see a doctor.
You might be surprised by the wide range of conditions Bettr can take care of for you.
As long as it’s not a medical emergency, our doctors can help you with a wide range of health issues and healthcare services in the comfort of your home. For example, during a consultation, our doctors can help diagnose your issue, prescribe medication to treat acute (right now) symptoms and suggest lifestyle changes for long-term prevention where relevant.
Respiratory issues we can help treat through Bettr include the following:
Other respiratory issues we can treat include Glandular fever, Chest Infection, Allergies, Chronic sinusitis, Cold, and Flu.
Many other conditions not on this list will also be fine for online support. However, if your doctor thinks you need a face-to-face consultation for further treatment, they will discuss this with you to arrange the best next steps.
If you or a family member are suffering from respiratory health issues, like the above, you can book an appointment with our doctors, who can often treat your condition online.
We offer same-day appointments and online prescriptions. There’s no app to download, no need to change GP and no registration; just immediate healthcare wherever you are. And should you become unwell because of an accident, we also offer ACC and injury care. Should you need a medical certificate, we can do that too.
Following your online consult, should you need to see a doctor face to face to treat your respiratory health issue, we can make it easy by referring you to one of our nearly 50 GP and medical clinics from Whangārei to Christchurch.
