Device to improve breathing?


Recommended Posts

Hi, Has anyone here used one of those plastic mouth piece apparatuses that promise improved breathing in 3-5 days? They come under various names. They promise to strengthen breathing muscles by restricting inhale and exhale during exercise. I've tried yoga for last 5 years and walking too, which has helped, but my breathing is still not the same as before. I would just like to take a big old breath of air like I used to. Anyway, wondering if anyone has tried one of these and if it worked. Thanks. Barb

Hi Barb,

I was just given one with instructions in my pulmonary rehab class. It is called a P-flex. I trust that it does work. I have so much confidence in my pulm. therapist. Also, I was given another device called an Acapella. The purpose of this is to help to loosen and expel secretions.

Good luck. You may have to have someone show you how to use the device correctly.
