What does Respiratory Physiotherapy refer to?

 

The term refers to the assessment and treatment of those having respiratory system disorders. It includes the condition which affects the lungs such as chronic bronchitis, emphysema, and cystic fibrosis. It also involves the various conditions which impact the respiratory system such as general surgery and illnesses that require intensive care. The various approach involves the application of chest clearance technique, exercise and learning positions that enable maximum functional ability.

  • Techniques which enable chest clearance
  • Postural drainage
  • Therapeutic exercise
  • Rehabilitation
  • Usage of various types of equipment to assist in respiratory care
  • Education and advice on self-management.

There are various causes of lung disease which include smoking, air pollution, chemicals or occupational dust and genetic causes. Every type has a different pathology however the symptoms are similar. Chronic lung diseases cannot be cured and the focus is to enhance the person’s health and quality of life. There are many things which people with chronic lung disease can do to keep healthy and reduce their symptoms. Physiotherapists play an important role in working with people to improve their quality of life.

Lung physiotherapy is an airway clearance technique to drain the lungs and includes percussion vibration, deep breathing, and huffing or coughing.  

 

With postural drainage, the person lies in various positions so that the part of the lungs to be drained is high. That part is then drained with percussion, vibration, and gravity. Your care team may tailor the position according to your and your child’s needs. The person with CF is in one position then the caregiver needs to clap on the person’s chest wall. It is done for three to five minutes and sometimes followed by vibration over the same area for approximately 15 seconds. Then the person is made to cough forcefully to get the mucus out of the lungs.

 

Clapping by the caregiver on the chest over the lung which needs to be drained helps move mucus into larger airways. The hand is cupped to hold water with the palm facing down. The cupped hand curve to the chest wall and traps a cushion to soften the clapping.

 

Percussion is performed forcefully with a stable beat. Every beat has a hollow sound. Mostly the movement is in the wrist with the relaxed arm making percussion-less tiring to do. If the hand is cupped properly then the percussion should not be painful.

 

Special attention should be taken to not clap over the:

 

  • Spine
  • Breastbone
  • Stomach
  • Lower ribs or back

 

There are various devices that can be used instead of the traditional cupped palm method for percussion. You can ask your CF doctor to recommend the one that works best for you.

 

Vibration is a technique that shakes the mucus and moves it into larger airways. The caregiver places a firm hand on the chest wall over the draining lung and tenses the muscles of the arm and should at creating a shaking motion. The caregiver then applies light pressure over the area being vibrated. Vibration is performed through the flattened hand, not the cupped hand. Exhalation should be slow and complete.

Your bodies need some help in promoting lung health. One of the easiest forms of action is diet and exercise. A study published in Thorax shows that those who eat apples have better lung health than those who do not. However, seeking the help of a dietitian and fitness trainer can be very helpful but make sure to speak about the planned lung physiotherapy with your physician first.

Some lung physiotherapy exercises that can help your lungs:

Walking and biking – Physical exercises that stimulate heart health can help the lungs utilize oxygen more efficiently, which means less shortness of breath and deep breathing. Make sure to try speed walking and riding a bike for some time.

 

Swimming – It is the best exercise as every muscle of your body is used when you swim. It can seem harmless but can be strenuous.

 

Yoga – This activity uses most of your body’s muscles, it can stimulate your lungs through focused breathing. It helps work out your diaphragm which operates the lungs.

 

Breathing exercises – There are many breathing exercises you can do to help improve your lung capacity. Breathe deep to fill your lung cavity. If you exhale, purse your lips and breathe slowly. Then hold your breath for a few seconds before inhaling again. Repeat this to see if you can increase the time you hold your breath.

 

Exercise is good for every individual for good health but if you have progressive lung disease, it is important that you exercise your lungs often. You can seek lung physiotherapy or treatment that suits your lifestyle and get the good results that you always wanted.

 

If you or your loved ones suffer from a progressive lung disease like COPD or pulmonary fibrosis, then you need to get proper help. It can help promote healing and get your life back to normal.

How We Made A Difference

  • review rating 1  Worst!!! I am paying for professional services and the attendant is not professional. The level of disappointment is i have to terminate services on Day 1 itself. And still I am being told to pay for 1 day. Please assess the attendant before going for services from care24

  • review rating 1  Horrible, unprofessional service! Advance paid.The caregiver did not show up. When complained to customer care, they said they will find a replacement and call back. No call back, no replacement. They shut for the day and the customer is felt in a lurch. Extremely disappointing. Will never avail this service again and will spread the word too.

  • review rating 1  Worst experience ever! Have hired a caregiver and a nurse. The nurse arrives late repeatedly inspite of being told about how critical medication timings are, falls asleep during day duty, is clueless about timings and medications inspite of us having guided them and has no sound medical knowledge whatsoever. She insisted that a fever of 99.7 is normal and even tried feeding the patient through riles tube with the patient lieing down inspite of there being a recliner arrangement. Neither the nurse or the attendant knew the correct way of lifting a patient from the bed, it was all ignorant tug and pull. Any complaints made to the organisation made no difference as they need more than a day to arrange for a replacement and one needs to deal with the same incompetent staff for another day or risk having no caregiver coming over (as bluntly informed by the call center) at all. Furtheron, the same performance continued the next day. In fact, in the absence of the family members it was observed through a baby monitor that the attendant and the nurse were sitting and chatting away while the patient was trying to sleep and literally PASSING FOOD OVER TO EACH OTHER OVER THE PATIENT! If this wasnt bad enough, the attendant developed a cough and a fever and when a call was made to care 24 asking them to send a replacement on the next day at least as the patient has low immunity, the organisation again gave a choice, we could have the same attendant and risk the patient getting sick, or have no attendant for the next day as they didn't have anyone available. Do not fall for the sales pitch of the executives over the phone as their premium prices and promises of exceptionally well trained staff is nothing but marketing mumbo jumbo. The professionalism and training of the staff that comes to your door is as garbage as the service of the organisation. More importantly, do not trust this organisation with the health and well being of your loved ones as no one in the entire heirarchy of care 24 really 'cares'. You would be better off hiring someone from a local agency. Have had much better experiences with randomly contacted nurses and attendants through justdial. Even though they live far, they reach on time The local organisations are also promptly able to provide replacements if need be. P.S. The 1000 or so rupees registration charge they take from you initially, is essentially a financial clickbait as its money they've made off you after they have stressed you out, contributed to deterioration of the patient and compelled you to suspend their services.

  • review rating 2  I used Care24 services for 7 months duration in 2019-20. Carers they provide are a mixed bag. Some are really good while others lack even basic service skills. You got to be very very lucky to get one and same carer over long time as carers often go on leave. When regular carer is on leave, every time they will send new carer. So family members need to repeat everything, right from home address, directions to patient's routine, medicines etc. Do not expect that Care24 will provide any heads-up or patient routine information to new carer who is visiting. Over the 6 months of Mumbai-based care services I used from Care24, there were over 15 instances where new carers were late more than 2 to 3 hours. Care24 support team is very lethargic, there were times when support team assumed that carer has reached home when he had not even started from his place. Support team is unaware of carers being late to customer's place. Then came in so called, the technology upgrade, Jan-Feb 2020, they had a new IT system and there were numerous issues with billing, sending invoices and payment receipts to customers (as told by support team themselves). Support staff told me at least 10 times over phone and email that there are system issues in billing and payment, I had to calculate amount manually on my own and then Pay them. With new system, accounts were on toss, no invoices were sent to customers (in spite of the fact that payment policy says payment needs to be made after receiving invoice.) I had 20-25 emails following up for invoice and payment receipts, but their support team in Mumbai did not care to respond. I found their behavior very unprofessional and not good over these 2-3 months. If you are outside for work (or overseas) and not staying with the patient or your parents, I strongly suggest DO NOT USE CARE24, as they do not respond to your emails and phone in time. They do not bother even when the patient is without care because of their delays in operations and carer issues. They need to improve basic operations first, give timely and consistent services to customers, and then worry about Apps, Digital Assistants and other tech-stuff. .My genuine advice to them--- You are dealing with patient healthcare services, where patient family is relying on you. This is not a courier service business where you are sending people to move boxes and you would't care much when service is delayed !!
