Brief Answer:
Get done chest x ray and PFT.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
In my opinion, we should first rule out lung related causes for his breathlessness.
So first get done chest x ray and PFT (Pulmonary Function Test).
He may need inhaled bronchodilators and inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) if PFT is showing obstructive Airway defect.
Please let me know if he is current or past smoker.
I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
