Very interesting lecture especially in regards to the importance of an effective cough technique to help clear the secretions and not exacerbate the chronic cough. You will understand this and how/why it works due to the physiology of a cough. Also in regards to breathing techniques to help with laryngeal wheeze - very interesting!

A good presentation and refresher on respiratory anatomy and physiology, as well as learning some helpful techniques to assist and empower a patient with breathing/coughing difficulties so they can take back some control over their condition/situation.
