The Breather Device How to Use

The breather device how to use

The Breather is a drug-free, evidenced-based respiratory muscle training (RMT) device that is effective in rebuilding strength in both inspiratory and expiratory muscles of respiration. It trains diaphragmatic breathing, improves breath support for speech production, swallow safety, productive cough and helps reduce dyspnea. It is especially beneficial to tracheostomy and mechanical ventilation patients who have lost the ability to breathe independently.

RMT is an effective complementary therapy for asthma and can be used in conjunction with bronchodilators, corticosteroids and dry powder inhalers. There is also evidence that it can help decrease the frequency of asthma attacks and reduce the severity and intensity of diurnal and nocturnal symptoms. The Breather is also a valuable tool for people with COPD, CHF, Dysphagia and Neuromuscular disease to improve overall lung and respiratory fitness and improve quality of life without medication.

Respiratory muscle training is an essential component of a complete exercise program and is highly effective in building a strong foundation for optimal respiratory and cardiovascular health. It will strengthen and tone your inspiratory and exhalatory muscles and can significantly improve your ability to perform your daily activities and exercise.

The XPT Guide to the Breather Fit is an in-depth and comprehensive training guide designed to help you reach your goals with your breather. It will teach you how to get the most out of your breather, increase your training consistency and provide a framework for maximizing your results.

To start, make sure your mouthpiece is clean and is securely in place. Then, set the inhale and exhale dials to a setting that allows you to perform 10 breaths without puffing your cheeks or being out of breath. Adjust the inhale and exhale dials independently as you progress through your training.

Breathe through your breather for 10 minutes a day, 6 days a week and you will see and feel the benefits. It is important to keep in mind that it may take a few weeks for your body to adapt to this type of training. During this time, you may experience light headedness when you initially begin your sessions, but this is due to increased oxygen exchange as the body learns to breathe more efficiently.

It is recommended that you train your breather for at least 5 weeks before determining if you are ready to increase the resistance levels. It is important that you only use your breather for yourself, not other people or family members. Sharing devices with other people can cause the spread of infection. To ensure the integrity of your breather, it is important to clean it regularly using the instructions provided in the user manual. This will prevent build-up of saliva and extend the life of your device. To avoid bacteria and mold growth, we recommend that you store your Breather in a clean and dry location. You should also clean your mouthpiece after each use to prevent the transfer of harmful pathogens from other people’s saliva to your breather.
