Breathe Stronger: COPD

Breathe Stronger: COPD" is a crucial initiative aimed at improving the lung function and overall quality of life for people living with COPD. COPD, which includes conditions like chronic bronchitis and emphysema, is characterized by reduced airflow in and out of the lungs. Breathing exercises are a fundamental component of managing COPD, helping to improve lung capacity and respiratory muscle strength. Techniques such as diaphragmatic breathing and pursed-lip breathing can assist individuals in managing shortness of breath and reducing anxiety associated with COPD. Regular physical activity, tailored to one's ability, can enhance respiratory muscles and increase overall endurance. Medications prescribed by healthcare providers, including bronchodilators and inhaled corticosteroids, can help control symptoms and improve lung function. Avoiding tobacco smoke, air pollutants, and irritants is essential to prevent further damage to the lungs. Oxygen therapy may be recommended in advanced stages of COPD to ensure an adequate supply of oxygen to the body.
