Breathing With Confidence
Our first class in the series of three was held on Wednesday 2 March and aimed to helping people Breathe Better with Asthma. The first class allows you to learn breathing techniques you can use every day, to breathe with more confidence as well as some tips on wearing a facemask so it’s both comfy and safe. The series is presented by Ms Janet Bondarenko, a senior respiratory physiotherapist at the Alfred hospital. She has extensive clinical experience in the management of chronic respiratory disease and currently co-ordinates the pulmonary rehabilitation program and the outpatient physiotherapy respiratory clinic at Alfred Health. She is a PhD candidate researching the characteristics and treatment of dysfunctional breathing in asthma.
Breathing in Cold Weather
Our second webinar in the series of three was held on Tuesday 21st June and aimed to help people breathe better in cold weather. The second webinar allows you to learn breathing techniques you can use during the cold weather, as well as some tips on airway clearance strategies that are useful if you’re feeling congested. These strategies such as ‘huffing’ may be particularly useful if you also have bronchiectasis or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
Breathing during exercise
Our third webinar in the series of three was held on Wednesday 5th October. Regular physical activity is recommended for people with asthma, but it is also a common trigger for asthma symptoms. Senior Respiratory Physiotherapist Ms Janet Bondarenko is hosted by us at Asthma Australia and helps you tell the difference between ‘out-of-breath’ and ‘short-of-breath’ and give tips for exercising safely.
