What is Respiratory Tract Infection?

Respiratory tract infections (RTIs) are a very common type of condition that affects any area of your body involved in breathing.

They are generally divided into Lower respiratory tract infections (affecting lungs and airways) and Upper Respiratory tract infections (affecting the nose, sinuses, and throat).

Ahmeys prescribers will assess your symptoms and once you have been diagnosed they will recommend the most effective treatment.

Lower Respiratory Tract Infection


Lower RTIs affect your airways and lungs. Examples include bronchitis, pneumonia, tuberculosis, and bronchiolitis.

Common symptoms include:

Tight feeling in the chest


Breathing faster than normal


Upper Respiratory Tract Infection


This type of RTI affects your sinuses, throat, and nose. The common cold, tonsillitis, and sinusitis are all examples of Upper RTIs.

Symptoms Include


Runny or blocked nose


Sore Throat


RTIs can be caused by bacteria or viruses. Before an Ahmeys prescriber can recommend treatment they need to diagnose what sort of RTI you have.

They will discuss your symptoms with you during your consultation and undertake a medical history and use the information provided to make their diagnosis and suggest effective treatment or medication.


Respiratory tract infections can be passed on through contagious viruses and bacteria. The virus can be caught through direct contact ( such as someone's breath) or indirect contact (such as touching a surface that someone with a virus has touched).
As the symptoms of viruses often take a few days to appear, it is easy to become infected without realizing it.

Went for a fit to fly PCR test. The staff were incredibly polite and helpful. They took special care to get my flight credentials correct and had my test result to me within less than a day. They guarantee to get your result the next day (even over weekends). Overall good service, I would recommend.

I went to the clinic for a Covid Swab test: the nurse has been very professional and careful, the service has been perfect, fast and the certificate compliant for the fit to fly. I highly recommend this service and I will definitely use it again.
