With his 50th birthday approaching, Dave wanted to make sure that he'd be able to blow out all the candles on his cake.
There’s a small device called an incentive spirometer that is used for patients who need to do deep breathing. You have to lift up a little ball with your breathing. It’s literally resistance training for your lungs. I give it to patients with rib fractures so they know they are breathing deep enough.
