Breathing Exercises: Asthma, Bronchitis, COPD, Emphysema, Cystic Fibrosis, Pneumonia, Tuberculosis, Pulmonary Edema

Module 8-A. Restrictions, side effects, limits, and temporary contraindications

Respiratory disorders involving lungs

Respiratory disorders involving lungs (asthma, bronchitis, COPD, emphysema, cystic fibrosis, pneumonia, tuberculosis; pulmonary edema; etc.)

The restrictions relate only to breathing sessions with the DIY breathing device.

These groups of people should be gentle in relation to their damaged lungs tissue. Intensive mechanical stimulation of their lungs (in terms of amplitude and velocity of inhalation and exhalations) during initial stages of learning should be avoided. Later, they can gradually increase these parameters.

Hence, they should avoid any fast inhalation and exhalations, as well as maximum inflations and deflations of their lungs. All exercises are done in a comfortable way with good care for the current abilities of their lungs.
