The Frolov breathing
device (or Frolov's respiration training device) is a modern respiratory
training device. It was invented by Vladimir Fedorovich Frolov and
Eugene Fedorovich Kustov in the 1990's. Numerous Russian clinical
trials and approbations have found that the Frolov device is a safe and
effective medical tool to reduce symptoms and medications for various
health problems (including asthma, bronchitis, COPD, emphysema,
hypertension, angina pectoris, sinusitis, diabetes, arthritis,
seizures, sleep apnea, and many other conditions).
In Russia, the
Frolov breathing device can be bought in pharmacies and hundreds of
Russian MDs or family physicians prescribe the Frolov breathing device
to their patients so that they can buy and use it.
Apart from two patents in the USSR and Russia, the Frolov respiration
device was patented in the USA - Patent Number 5,755,640 (here is a PDF file:
USA Frolov Device Patent). In the USA, since 2000 the Frolov
breathing device was officially approved by the US FDA (Food and Drug
Administration) as a Class 2 medical device (Frolov device FDA's approval).
When following the holistic health restoration program, based on Dr
KP Buteyko's discoveries in the realm of lifestyle changes and the general
goal of breathing training (to succesfully breathe less and slower, 24/7), breathing
sessions with the Frolov device actually deliver the fastest growth in body-oxygen content (the control
pause - see the test below) when compared with other popular techniques. (The Amazing DIY Breathing Device,
a prototype of the Frolov device, produces comparable results.)
A short breathing session (e.g., 3-5 minutes) with the Frolov
breathing device leads to quick reductions in acute symptoms of many
chronic diseases (including exacerbation of asthma, bronchitis,
chest pain due to angina, blocked nose, chronic coughing,
pain due to arthritis, dyspnea, constipation, shortness of breath, and
seizures). Typical breathing sessions (15 min or longer) produce a
profound and lasting rejuvenating effect with a feeling of increased
energy; improved focus, sleep, digestion; and many other positive physiological
and biochemical changes.
Easier and lighter breathing after the breathing session will last
for many hours due to the adaptation of the breathing centre to this slower
and more relaxed breathing with higher CO2 levels in body cells and improved
body-oxygen content. Using the body-oxygen test, we can easily measure and track this. Systematic applications of the Frolov breathing
device, combined with healthy lifestyle changes, lead to clinical
remission of many chronic diseases.
There are special instructions developed by Vladimir Fedorovich
Frolov himself and his numerous followers, including Dr. Sergey
Nakifovich Zinatulin, MD, a pupil of Dr KP Buteyko and the leading respiratory
specialist at Dinamika company
Dinamika company is currently the primary international advocate and
promoter of the Frolov breathing device.

(with lifestyle changes and manuals), as well as 18 pages of Dinamika
instructions for using the Frolov device.
There is a certain range of breathing parameters where the Frolov breathing device outperforms Buteyko exercises, and where the Frolov device is probably the ideal tool (due to its mechanical parameters) for breathing exercises (to practice least time and get maximum body O2 benefits). This ideal range of CP numbers in seconds (the results of the body oxygen test) is provided right below here as your bonus content. The bonus content also explains what to do when you are outside this ideal CP range.

Some facts about the Frolov Breathing Device
- Over 300 health professionals (MDs, GPs or family physicians, nurses,
physiotherapists, and other medical professionals) have been involved in
studying, endorsing and promoting the Frolov breathing device and its application to
their patients in Russia since the year 2000.
- More than 2,500,000 people in Russia could confirm that they have improved
their health with the help of the Frolov Respiration Training Device, implying
the goals set have been successfully achieved (http://www.intellectbreathing.com/)
- According to the results of clinical trials on children and adults and the
long-term practical application of the device, it is a very efficient
therapy against diseases of the respiratory, cardiovascular and nervous
systems. The Frolov breathing exercises normalize oxygenation of the arterial blood,
blood supply to the brain and myocardium, oxygenation of cells, the immune
system, and metabolism, and improve lung function tests and abnormal blood
parameters, including the hormonal profile. The exercises also improve energy level, sleep and
- Typical reduction
in medication in clinical trials for bronchial asthma was
about 60-80%. (Note that since correction of risk life style factors was not
a part of the program, much better results are expected when the practicing
person makes positive changes in this area.) Clinical trials also found
reduced inflammation in airways and normalizations in the heart rate,
electrocardiogram, blood pressure, cardiointervalography and renovasography
measurements. The breathing device improved the removal of mucus and reduced
coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath.
- Systematic clinical trials and published medical studies with hundreds of
patients have been conducted on the following health problems: bronchial
asthma, bronchial asthma in children, bronchial asthma with weakness of
respiratory muscles, hypertension, angina pectoris, chronic bronchitis,
acute stages of bronchitis, emphysema, and diabetes. Apart from these
investigations, medical reports have indicated positive effects
on gastrointestinal problems, cystic fibrosis, psychological disorders,
obesity, osteochondrosis, and some other conditions.
