Asthma patients reduce symptoms, improve lung function with shallow breaths, more carbon dioxide

4 noviembre 2014

Asthmatics naturally take deep breaths to relieve symptoms. But new research has found that asthma patients using biofeedback to resist the urge to gulp air or take deep breaths, managed to reduce symptoms and improve lung function. Shallow breathing increased carbon dioxide, said investigators. The findings are the first published results of a large clinical trial.
