How we breathe (video)

Watch "How we breathe" - a short film about the mechanisms of breathing and breathlessness.
Before exploring respiratory health, how confident are you in your ability to explain to your patients how we breathe?

To better inform patients and health professionals about the mechanisms underlying breathing and breathlessness, the International Primary Care Respiratory Group (IPCRG) created a short film using fresh imagery that displays brand-new 3D models of the body inside and out.

This is an additional video, hosted on YouTube.

With this educational three-dimensional video, healthcare professionals have a new tool to help their patients improve their breathing literacy, but also breathe better, feel good, and accomplish more in life.
