Dyspnea was a medical term describing a sensation of difficulty in breathing.

Dyspnea was generally considered a symptom of disease. In some species, such as Tellarites, it was considered a sign, i.e., a medical indication only detectable by a physician.

Doctor Julian Bashir downloaded data about dyspnea, coughing, and other pulmonary disorders onto a PADD shortly before he left to attend a medical conference on Casperia Prime in 2374. (DS9: "Inquisition")
