Your doctor will plan your treatment and may recommend that you meet with a respiratory therapist. These therapists evaluate and treat and care for patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease or COPD. One treatment they use is pursed-lip breathing. It is a simple breathing exercise. This is valuable as you can use it anytime or anywhere.

1. Relax your neck and shoulder muscles.

2. Breathe in slowly through your nose to a count of two keeping mouth closed.

In the nineties, during the height of the “grunge years,” Gonson lived on the West Coast where she produced, managed, and toured with rock bands. It was during this incarnation that she experienced (hung with) Seattle grunge heroes, Nirvana.

Cambridge man offers health advice to smokers, COPD sufferers

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, or COPD, is more than just a serious lung disease. It cannot be cured but it can be treated. The common cause of COPD is repeated exposure to cigarette smoking. Over time symptoms slowly get worse. This is one of the reasons you should quit smoking. Quitting smoking is the key. It is the most effective way to stop the developing of COPD. If you have been diagnosed with the disease quitting can slow down its development. It is never to late to quit.
