    Hi, This is Beverly DeMarco, I found this box breathing very helpful, but when I was in the Hospital April 23 for another exbation the Doctor gave me two Breathing treatments with the NEBULIZER and I find that really opens up my lungs. I NOW do the NEBULIZER TREATMENTS at my home four times a day.Hope it might help some of you too!!!

    Hi ajschulte and thanks for letting us know. It seems some of our members are having issues with the audio while others are not. You may want to look into your speakers, wiring, volume, etc. Please give it another try.

    Hi Beverly and I’m sorry to hear you’re still having issues with the audio from the video. You may want to ask someone who is there with you, if they can lend a hand figuring out this issue, if possible.

    As for replies to your inquiry, I’m sorry others have not responded to you. In the meantime, we do have any number of articles that address showering and COPD. You may find it helpful to look over any or all of them. Here is a link to those articles: https://copd.net/?s=showering I hope you find them to be helpful.
    And yes, if you want to post your question in the “Q & A section”, by all means, go ahead and see if you get responses there.
    Wishing you well,
    Leon (site moderator)
