Why respiratory training is important - interview with professor Sovijärvi
What kind of scientific research is there on respiratory training and steam breathing? Emeritus professor Anssi Sovijärvi from Helsinki University Central Hospital, Department of Clinical Physiology explains. Breathing against positive end-expiratory pressure with that device can open closed or narrowed small airways and thus improve the efficiency and distribution of alveolar ventilation. Such a training of breathing can increase the strength of respiratory muscles and improve pulmonary gas exchange.
