Objective: An understanding of the causes of dyspnoea can reduce morbidity and mortality. It may be difficult to decide whether dyspnoea is secondary to heart or lung disease. The objective of this study was to evaluate the coexistence of heart and lung diseases in patients with chronic dyspnoea, when clinical evaluation was not helpful.
