    Because breathing is taken for granted, we work for better recognition of chronic respiratory diseases

EFA Spanish Member FENAER has launched a website to support patients with pulmonary rehabilitation online and for free. The website can be opened in all devices and offers several videos, 3 minutes long, depending on the needs of each patient.

These training tutorials have been developed for respiratory patients originally in Spanish. Now they have been translated into Portuguese.

Exercise has been proved a very effective way to help manage diseases like COPD and asthma, because the muscles involved in pulmonary ventilation may be helpful for pulmonary rehab. It is though very important to adapt the difficulty and the exercise to the capacity of each patient.

The videos can be accessed via fisioterapiarespiratoria.org
