Frog breathing

A complement for breathing for people with impaired pulmonary function

Frog breathing or glossopharyngeal breathing is a way of consciously breathing in order to:
- increase lung volume
– improve ventilation
- improve ability to take deeper breaths
– improve coughing
– a complement to other respiratory aids
– provides increased security and sense of freedom/independence
