Tips to Help With Breathing

Shortness of breath can be one of the most difficult symptoms of COPD. Fortunately, there are ways to use your chest muscles to assist the lungs — and a few straws are all you need to practice. In this video, respiratory therapist Alex Grichuhin from the Home Rehab Network discusses pulmonary rehabilitation techniques to ease breathing.

This video will teach viewers to use their chest muscles to help breathing and demonstrate how strengthening them can assist the lungs.
