    I definitely find PLB a tremendous tool! I have COPD and Lupus that affect my lungs. I discovered this tool on… My COPDteam.com a few months ago. June 2017 I had such a bad SOB I actually blew out my air capacity. I had to call an ambulance where they had to give me 120 liter of oxygen plus treatments of albuterol. What kept me going while I waited for them to arrive was doing PLB slowly and focusing on each exhalation helped calm me down which brought my heart rate down also. Wonderful article I look forward to all notices you send to my email. Thank you for all you do to help us be informed as to how to take care of ourselves.

      You are most welcome, Heidi – and congratulations on your quick thinking and use of pursed lips breathing during your shortness of breath flare-up.
