MyCOPDTeam has partnered with the Home Rehab Network to bring you videos filled with helpful tips and exercises that you can do from the comfort of your own home.
While exercise is invaluable for people living with COPD, difficulty catching your breath afterward can scare many away. However, there is a way to get more oxygen in any given breath. In this video, respiratory therapist Alex Grichuhin from the Home Rehab Network discusses pursed lip breathing techniques that make it easier to catch your breath after exercise or any other situation where you are short of breath.
The video will show those with COPD or other pulmonary conditions how to make sure each breath counts.
