You might consider seeking a certified respiratory trainer. We all have seen, and know the basic 4 or 5 lung strengthening exercises. I saw on the web (I have no knowledge of this product nor do I recommend it) It is marketed by respiratory trainer – I show it only as an avenue for you toconsider if you want to go an extra step and investigate this type of item:
PROVIDES ALL LEVELS OF RESISTANCE FOR INHALING AND EXHALING EXERCISE
The Expand-A-Lung® inspiratory/expiratory breathing resistance trainer is a breakthrough product for improving endurance through better breathing and lung function. Research supports that this breathing exercise significantly improves the strength of respiratory muscles, and increases the volume of lung oxygen intake. The end result is deeper, easier and better breathing for a superior endurance performance and longer breath holding capacity.
As every competitive athlete knows, the body’s demand for oxygen substantially increases during any form of sustained high intensity exercise. VO2 Max defines the climax of muscle oxygen delivery before CO2 levels rise. At this point, muscle performance decreases and shortness of breath increases. This is what the Expand-A-Lung® targets and improves.
It is also an excellent exercise for COPD patients to get rid of the trapped air in the alveoli for better gas exchange. This will surely improve breathing and reduce shortness of breath.
