Hi Vent Users,

Did anyone learn "frog breathing" during rehabilitation?

I'm wondering if this is commonly taught... if not, it should be!

I recently learned about "frog breathing" from Dr. Onders' office -- the nurse claimed that respiratory therapists should know about this and that it's easier to "learn" with a diaphragm pacer. She also said that she has to show me cuz it's difficult to describe.

I really want my Dad to learn this. But, the LT subacute respiratory therapist, who works with my Dad, claims that he's worked in the field for over 20 years and has never heard of it.
