Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease causes difficulty breathing. It is impossible to restore lung health, but one can prevent complications and improve well-being.
Quick, superficial breaths complicate the flow of air into the lungs.
You can try three basic ways to facilitate breathing:
One of the main symptoms of COPD is shortness of breath, which is aggravated by physical exertion. Breathing takes a lot of energy, patients often lose weight and become weaker. Small superficial breaths make it difficult for air to enter the lungs. The study of new ways to control breathing in these cases will help improve well-being and get rid of the discomfort.
Use these methods when necessary and practice as often as possible.
Breathing with closed lips (meaning not tightly closed) helps to get more air into the lungs. This allows you to perform physical activities.
Breathing with a diaphragm expands the lungs and receives more air. The diaphragm is a large muscle between the lungs and the stomach.
Breathing in this way will reduce shortness of breath during exercise and rest. You can apply this method in a sitting or standing position.
If you have any questions about breathing techniques, consult your doctor.
