Covid 19 FB Post 4 Symptom Management pt.1

Breathing exercises that may help with shortness of breath are as follows:

Pursed lip breathing exercises:

  • Sitting upright or slightly reclining, relax your neck and shoulder muscles.
  • With your mouth closed, inhale through the nose for 2 seconds, as if smelling a flower.
  • Exhale slowly (for 4 seconds if possible) through pursed lips, as if blowing out birthday candles.
  • Repeat inhalation and exhalation cycles for 2 minutes, several times a day when needed.

Deep breathing exercises:

  • Recline in bed or on a sofa with a pillow under your head and knees. If reclining is not possible, this may be done while sitting upright.
  • Place one hand on your belly, the other on your chest.
  • Slowly inhale through your nose; let your lungs fill with air, allowing your belly to rise. (The hand on the belly should move more than the hand on the chest.)
  • Breathe out through your nose, and as you exhale, feel your belly lower.
  • Repeat the inhalation and exhalation cycles for 2 to 5 minutes several times a day and when needed.
