Conventionally, the sensation of uncomfortable or difficulty in breathing experienced by John is normally referred to as Dyspnea. The Dyspnea on exertion (DOE) that John reports normally is considered an indication of disease because it occurred at a level of activity that he usually tolerates. In this regard, the two common cases of Dyspnea that John may have are treponema that occurs when one is in a certain lateral decubitus position contrary to another, and Platypnea which is associated with breathlessness occurring in the upright position and is generally relieved using recumbence (West, 2011).

[...] Bronchial Asthma According to Leigh and Marley (2013) the physical examinations and the pathophysiology eliminate the chance of respiratory infection or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Further, lung and pulmonary tests are necessary and determine the air moving out as John breathes. These tests may include spirometry or/and peak flow. The spirometry test checks the much air one can exhale after a deep breath and how fast they can breathe out to estimate the narrowing of bronchial tubes (Leigh & Marley, 2013). Peak flow determines how hard a patient breath out. References Al-Shura, A. (2014). Physical Examination in Cardiovascular Chinese Medicine. Burlington: Elsevier Science. [...]

[...] The body temperature of an individual may vary depending on food and fluid consumption, a recent activity, gender, time of the day and in women the stage of the menstrual cycle (Borson et al, 2000). This highlights that there is a significant chance for measurement of error and hence repetitive determinations of the temperature, as well as other signs, may provide more accurate information. Typically, the normal body temperature is expected to range from 36.5 degrees Celsius to 37.2 degrees C. In this consideration, John's temperature is within range assuming the measurement is error free. Conventionally, when measuring the blood pressure two numbers are recorded both in or millimeters of mercury. [...]
