  • Exercise Intolerance.
  • Syncope or collapsing episodes.
  • Coughing or breathing difficulties.

  • Electrocardiography (ECG) including 24-hours, 48-hours or 7-day Holter monitoring.
  • Digital thoracic and upper airway radiography and computed tomography (CT).
  • Bronchoscopy.
  • Blood pressure assessment.

 

Intervention
