Call the on call.: You should call the on call physician, if yours is not available. They will be able to guide you on whether you can continue with your present treatment or if you should go to the emergency room. If you do not hear back from them, you should go to the emergency room.

Depends: Are you able to continue your daily activities without getting short of breath? If you can, a phone call may be sufficient. If you are short of breath more than that, it would be prudent to go the hospital.
