1 doctor agrees

In brief: Depends

Breathing difficulty can be associated with low oxygen delivery to the body and therefore the brain in multiple different conditions.
Physicians can evaluate people for decreased oxygen delivery to the body through taking a history of their issues, performing physical exam, measuring oxygen saturation non-invasively as well as through other laboratory and diagnostic evaluation.
