  • Breathing Strategies for COVID-19


    As we know, one of the main ways that Covid-19 attacks our body is infiltrating our lungs/respiratory system.

  • Doctor demonstrates breathing technique for coronavirus patients


    A doctor at Queen’s hospital has demonstrated a breathing technique to help coronavirus patients with respiratory symptoms. Dr Sarfaraz Munshi initially recorded the video for his friends and family, but it went viral after being posted YouTube, reaching more than 3M views.

    The technique involves taking five deep breaths in, holding your breath each time for five seconds. On the sixth deep breath, do a big cough. Repeat that cycle once. Then, lay flat on your front and breath slightly deeper for then minutes.

    There is no scientific evidence to suggest this technique helps coronavirus patients, but it is recommended by the Director of Nursing at Queen’s Hospital.

    Author JK Rowing tweeted that the video helped her recover after she displayed symptoms of Covid-19.

  • How COVID-19 Makes Breathing Difficult


    In healthy lungs, air flows into tiny air sacs called alveoli that deliver oxygen to the blood vessels that supply the body. When the coronavirus enters the lungs, your body, you fight back causing flu-like symptoms including fever, chills, cough, muscle or body aches, tiredness, and loss of taste or smell. In severe cases, the virus enters the air sacs of your lungs and they fill with fluid. This makes breathing difficult and can prevent oxygen from reaching the body. This is a life threatening condition. Seek immediate medical care if you have any of the following symptoms: difficulty breathing, bluish lips or face, confusion or change in mental status, persistent pain or pressure in the chest.

  • Managing Anxiety: Breathing Exercise Amid COVID-19 Crisis | UC San Diego Health


    In the face of uncertainty, managing anxiety and stress while also staying prepared and informed can be difficult. So what can you be doing to protect your mental health as the COVID-19 outbreak unfolds?

    In this video, Laura Sudano, PhD, UC San Diego Health psychologist, guides you through a short breathing exercise to help you get centered.

    Here are some other recommendations from the experts.

    Put down the smart phone. Take breaks from social media and the news. Give your mind a chance to disconnect. Consider setting up specific times or time limits on how long you spend checking the news each day, so you can stay informed without getting overwhelmed.

    Take care of yourself. Engage in healthy habits as much as possible. Eat well balanced meals, get some exercise, get plenty of sleep, and avoid bad habits, like too much alcohol.

    Enjoy your hobbies. Take the time to engage in relaxing activities, like reading a book, cooking a nice meal, or doing something creative like painting or knitting.

    Check in with your friends and family. Social distancing doesn’t mean social isolation! Connect with the people you care about to share your concerns and feelings and see how you can help support them.

    Take a deep breath to avoid burnout. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, stop and take a deep breath. Take a step back and give yourself space to process your feelings. Consider doing some stretches or yoga or engaging in a short mindfulness exercise to help keep you grounded.

    If your stress is interfering with your daily life, contact your health care provider to ask about additional care and resources. One place you can visit: UC San Diego Health/Psychiatry and Behavioral Health at

    The Center For Mindfulness, The Sanford Institute, and the Compassion Institute at UC San Diego Health are working together to provide daily resources to support mindfulness and compassion. Find their schedule and resources here:

  • 7 Signs Youve Had a Lung Infection Without Knowing


    Did you test positive for a Lung Infection without knowing it? Watch this video to find out.
    ????Lung Infection Signs Without Knowing [Full Guide] ➜ ➜ ➜

    ➡️ More Videos You Might Like:

    ▪ How To Get Rid of Mucus ➜ ➜ ➜
    ▪ Herbs for Lung Health ➜ ➜ ➜
    ▪ Vegetables for Healthy Lungs ➜ ➜ ➜

    ???? Here are the signs to look for that may indicate that you're been infected without realizing it:

    ➡️ A Cough That Won't Go Away
    The coughing mechanism is how your body gets rid of particles in the respiratory tract. During most lung infections, inflammation and mucus build-up occurs in the airways of the lungs which makes it more difficult to breathe. Your body triggers a cough response in order to get rid of the foreign materials in your lungs, allowing you to take in more air and breathe more freely.

    ➡️ Fever
    A fever can occur for many reasons, but it's most commonly seen when the body is fighting an infection. The average body temperature is 98.6°F (37°C) but it can fluctuate some, usually with warmer temperatures occurring later in the day. In general, some individuals will have a higher baseline temperature than others, but when a lung infection is present, it can increase as high as 105°F (40.5°C).

    ➡️ Weakness and Fatigue
    Weakness and fatigue are two of the most common signs of a lung infection. That is because, fighting off an infection takes energy from your body that you may have a difficult time manufacturing because the body is ill. Running a fever, battling with an infection, and a general feeling of unease can leave anyone feeling tired and a bit weak.

    ➡️ Shortness of Breath
    Shortness of breath is a symptom that occurs in most lung infections and can remain after other symptoms have gone away. This is likely due to inflammation that has occurred in the airways of the lungs. Shortness of breath can happen when performing activities that you can normally do pretty easily, such as walking to the mailbox or going up a flight of stairs.

    ➡️ You Have Suffered Through a Bad Cold
    Because the symptoms of a cold virus are so similar to the flu virus, some medical professionals initially have a difficult time distinguishing between the two. Regardless, both the flu and common cold can result in the occurrence of a lung infection. Bacterial infections may also occur after a viral infection because of the disruption of bacteria in the lungs.

    ➡️ Hair Loss
    According to the Academy of Dermatology, the body loses 50-100 strands of hair per day. In the case of a lung infection, this number of strands lost per day will be increased. Telogen effluvium is a condition in which hair loss occurs after a stressful experience, as seen with an illness.

    ➡️ Loss of Taste or Smell
    It may come to you as a surprise, but a very large percentage of people who have tested positive for a lung infection will experience a loss of taste and/or smell. This is because certain viruses can affect the olfactory cells in the upper nasal cavity which directly affects your ability to smell.

  • How does Coronavirus affect our lungs?


    We spoke to Professor Debby Bogaert, Scottish Senior Clinical Fellow and Honorary Consultant in paediatric infectious diseases at the University of Edinburgh about the effect of COVID-19 on our respiratory system.

    To contact The Physiological Society:

    COVID-19 is a respiratory illness caused by a new type of coronavirus, but what is the respiratory system and how is it affected by COVID-19? We spoke to Professor Debby Bogaert, Scottish Senior Clinical Fellow and Honorary Consultant in paediatric infectious diseases at Edinburgh University.

    Our respiratory system is a series of organs responsible for taking in oxygen and expelling carbon dioxide, also known as gas exchange. Professor Bogaert told us that when we become infected with COVID-19, it can cause an infection of part of this respiratory system known as the respiratory tree, which is found in our lungs. The respiratory tree, also called the bronchial tree, is a name given to the branch-like structure in our lungs which includes the bronchi right down to the tiny air sacs called alveoli. Professor Bogaert goes on to say that when we contract COVID-19 the lining of the respiratory tree typically becomes damaged, irritating the nerves in the lining of the airway, and causing that dry cough we’ve heard about. However for a small number of people, the infection can cause more severe problems by affecting what’s known as ‘gas exchange’. Gas exchange happens around the alveoli, those tiny air sacs at the tips of the respiratory tree - oxygen passes into the blood and carbon dioxide passes from the blood into the alveoli and is then exhaled - Professor Bogaert says that if COVID-19 affects this process, our body becomes less able to take on oxygen and get rid of carbon dioxide over time, and some people will need a ventilator to help them breathe.

    These truly are unprecedented times during this global pandemic. Respiratory Therapists have always been vital members of the healthcare team. But that is especially true now more than ever.

    Generally speaking, Respiratory Therapists are trained to treat patients with cardiopulmonary disorders and they work with physicians to treat such patients. This includes patients who have tested positive for COVID-19 as it is a disease that affects the respiratory system. Respiratory Therapists can initiate and manage patients who are in need of breathing support from a mechanical ventilator.

    Mechanical Ventilation is a form of life support that is used to assist with spontaneous breathing. In most cases, patients who are in need of ventilatory support are considered to be in critical condition. Respiratory Therapists are trained to operate mechanical ventilators and make changes to the settings when it's necessary depending on each individual patient's condition.

    COVID-19 is an infectious disease that targets the lungs and respiratory system. This is when mechanical ventilators come into play because patients will need extra breathing support.

    And this is also where the role of the Respiratory Therapist comes into play as well because they are needed to manage these machines and provide care for the patients who are infected.

    How to protect yourself and others from COVID-19?

    According to the World Health Organization, we should all Do the Five.
    #1 HANDS – Wash your hands often.
    #2 ELBOW – Cough into your elbow and cover your mouth when coughing or sneezing. Use a tissue if possible and dispose of in when finished. Otherwise, you can cough or sneeze into the inside of your arm or elbow. Then, of course, wash your hands.
    #3 FACE – Don't touch it. Keep your hands away from your mouth, nose, and eyes.
    #4 SPACE – Keep a safe distance. If you must be around other people, try to keep as much distance as possible.
    5 HOME – Stay at home as much as possible. Especially if you're sick or showing flu-like symptoms. Try to stay at home except when you leave to get medical care.

    ????One Final Word from the Respiratory Therapy Zone Team:

    I just want to say that our hearts go out to all of those who have been affected by COVID-19. You will continue to stay in our thoughts and prayers as we all navigate our way through this pandemic. I hope you stay safe and most importantly, I just want to say thank you for your service, dedication, and willingness to put yourself before others. I think I can speak for everyone when I say that I appreciate you and everything you're doing and will continue to do during this time. As I said, to stay updated with the latest information regarding COVID-19, be sure to check the CDC website often.

    Video Transcript:
    This is a dangerous phenomenon because the patients go into very low levels of oxygenation
    without having the so-called distressing symptoms of hypoxia.

    The Coronavirus, as we have understood over a period of time, is primarily a disease of the lungs.
    It affects other organs from the nose, to the throat and the sinuses to the intestine and various other organs of the body including the kidney and heart, but it lodges mainly in the lungs and that is why it causes a cough as well as breathlessness.

    The strange thing about the Coronavirus infection is the it causes a condition called ‘happy hypoxia’
    or silent hypoxia.This is a condition in which though the patient’s oxygen levels continue to fall, the patient does not feel breathless or feel any discomfort.This is a dangerous phenomenon because the patients go into very low levels of oxygenation without having the so-called distressing symptoms of hypoxia.

    On the 5th to 7th day, a patient of COVID-19 will start getting worse, his symptoms will start
    deteriorating and it is possible his oxygen levels will start falling.The simple method for us to do at this moment is to use a pulse oximeter. This is a simple device that you can attach to the nail of a patient and within a few seconds, it tells you about the oxygen level of the patient.

    Anything above 90% is fine.In COVID-19 patients sometimes we find the person has an oxygen level of 60%, still feels comfortable but is in urgent need of oxygen. So that is why, for a COVID-19 patient, checking their pulse oxygen levels, or SPO2, is important.Particularly after about a week of the infection when the patient is likely to deteriorate.This will make sure that we start early oxygen and prevent deterioration of the disease.
