Breathing equipment

Posted by gullive88 @gullive88, Dec 11, 2022

Hi has anyone tried the Airofit Pro for respiratory muscle training I have a number of other pieces of equipment that are less tech and was wondering if anyone can share their experience with this. I got COVID in Jan 2021 and live at 7200 ft and need supplemental oxygen when I am at home and am unable to participate in the sports I love. At sea level I am able to walk bike play golf etc without the oxygen back up. Next month I am scheduled to have a CT scan to see if my pulmonary fibrosis is progressive. Would appreciate any advice or knowledge with regard to this.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Lung Health Support Group.

@gullive88 I was about to say "go ahead and try it" until I saw that you have pulmonary fibrosis - anyone with a potentially serious lung condition needs to clear any new device with their pulmonologist. When airways are damaged, the wrong type of stress on them can cause further damage.
That said, I applaud you for working to improve function- maybe some pulmonary rehab with a skilled respiratory therapist could help ?
