Video on breathing exercises for you, your friends and family by Physiotherapist Lucy Macdonald


Focus on breathing out, not in

If you or your family have any coronavirus symptoms or would like to do some breathing exercises to prepare yourself in the event that you do get symptoms, this video is for you. Lucy Macdonald, Physiotherapist, demonstrates how to breathe properly, so that you get maximum oxygen into the lungs and carbon dioxide out, whether you have the symptoms of COVID-19 or not. Please read NHS guidelines on what do do if you think you may have coronavirus and seek advice by phoning 111 from any UK phone number.
