Common respiratory symptoms that bring patients to the emergency department include dyspnea (with the associated findings of hypoxia and hypercapnia), wheezing, and cough. Hiccups are an infrequent presenting symptom but, when persistent, very distressing to the patient. Cyanosis can be associated with pulmonary and vascular, as well as hematologic, pathologic conditions. This chapter discusses these symptoms and signs as they relate to evaluation of emergency patients. It is worth noting that, despite the increasing availability of and reliance on ancillary tests, the assessment of patients still begins with an accurate history and a careful physical examination in order to make the wisest use of ancillary tests.1
