Lung Exercises“In with the good air, out with the bad air”

Samantha Dow, SPTSlide2

Improve ventilation and increase efficiency of breathingAid in movement and clearance of mucous / sputum from lungs and airways to prevent build and increased risk of infection

Prevent pneumonia and other illnesses related to the lungs

Purpose of ExercisesSlide3

Constantly (as often as possible)The more you can get the sputum to move up and out of the lungs, the easier it will be to breath and maintain a clean pulmonary system

How often


o I need to perform these breathing exercises?Slide4

Controlled Deep BreathingDeep breathe with hold at end of inhaleBreath Stacking

Multiple small inhalations (stair step breathing)

Diaphragmatic Breathing

Breath from the belly

Segmental Breathing

Inhaling focusing on filling a single lung

Double Huff CoughingInhalation and double forced exhalationPurse-Lipped BreathingSlow exhale with lips puckered to increase resistance upon exhale

Breathing TechniquesSlide5

Active Cycle of BreathingSlide6

Normal relaxed breathingIn through the nose, out through the mouthPerform for 20 – 30 seconds

Breathing ControlSlide7

Slow, deep inhalation followed by a 3 second holdRepeat 3 – 4 timesIf painful, can use these to obtain full deep inhalation:Breath stacking

Segmental breathing

Deep BreathingSlide8

Inhale through nosePucker lipsExhale for 3 -4 seconds through puckered lips

Perform for 20 – 30 seconds

Pursed Lip BreathingSlide9

3 – 4 Deep BreathsBreathe in, push belly outBreath out, pull belly in

Diaphragmatic BreathingSlide10

Inhalation followed by two quick forced exhalations through open mouthAct like blowing ping pong ball out of mouth followed by 3 coughs

Aids in moving secretions along airways


Purpose: improve lung functioningPrimary focus: slow, deep inhalation

Attempting to raise the plunger towards the top of the device

Secondary focus

: slow exhalation

Incentive SpirometerSlide12

Other methods to aid in clearing lungs:Exercising CoughingDeep breathing



Positional changes
