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

  • lung physiotherapy, Physiotherapy Lung  My father had a hip bone surgery in January. I have been using Care24 services ever since. The attendants that cane were good in the beginning. However their services have become good to bad to worse to worst in the last 15 days. They changed the night attendant without informing me personally just 6 hours before the time. My father had just settled down with the last attendant and now they were sending a replacement tonight. To add to my frustration the guy didn’t turn up and did not answer the calls. When I called their call centre - they said they can’t help me at this hour. Well- I can’t help but call them CARELESS CARE24.

  • lung physiotherapy, Physiotherapy Lung  Most horrible services. Please do not ask for help from these people, they will talk sweet and then at the last moment there will be no shows from the caretaker. I had to go through this not once but twice the caretaker did not turn up. Request you all to not depend on these people as we are leaving our homes and letting them into our lives, the least they can do is inform and provide a replacement, but neither of it happened and they expect me to pay registration fees of RS,1000
