The Frolov Breathing Device History and Buteyko Method
Frolov Respiration Training Device was invented by Vladimir
Fedorovich Frolov (1938-2009). He graduated from the Military Academy
of Chemical Defense in Moscow and worked in the area of development and
production of devices for chemical defense. Well educated in the areas
of biochemistry and medicine, Vladimir Frolov was an author of 6
patented practical inventions. At the end of his military career, he
worked in the Central Apparatus of the Ministry of Defense of the USSR.
After his military career, he worked as a chief engineer for the production
of powdered materials.
During these times, in late 1980's, his health got progressively
worse. Vladimir Frolov was searching for solutions to his health
problems, and he found an article in a local newspaper about the
Buteyko breathing method (Dr. Buteyko had been working in Novosibirsk
in 1960-90's). Judging by the spirit of this article, Frolov realized
that the Buteyko method was successful for many different health
problems. However, there were many obstacles. The Buteyko method could
only be learned from an instructor during special lessons. As Frolov
wrote, "I was unsatisfied about this factor. If there is a method of
breathing, which does not require any special conditions and equipment,
why could a person not use it independently at home?"
Hence, he got an "idea about the creation of the Device for Each
Person". He continued, "... the Buteyko method could become the
scientific foundation for such a device. According to Buteyko, diseases
appear due to carbon dioxide deficiency in the arterial blood". This is
correct for most people, except patients with ventilation-perfusion
mismatch (severe asthma and bronchitis, emphysema, other forms of COPD,
etc.). In order to be more accurate, the hypothesis, according to Dr.
Buteyko, is that the cause of chronic diseases is alveolar
hyperventilation or CO2 deficiency in the functioning alveoli of the
lungs (See Definition of Hyperventilation
discussion for more detail.).
