•An alternative exercise plan for those patients unable to undergo a traditional pulmonary rehabilitation program.

•Helps COPD patients function better in their daily lives.

•Uses no fancy medical jargon -- easy to follow techniques are simple to comprehend and perform.

•Helps to increase your endurance by giving you more energy to breathe, a plus for patients with COPD.

Guide Review
I found Functional Fitness for COPD and Asthma to be a very simple program that most COPD patients, regardless of degree of disability, will be able to perform easily in the comfort of their own homes. Suzanne Andrews provides a clear explanation of the disease process, and incorporates a variety of breathing techniques into this uncomplicated, comprehensive exercise DVD. My favorite feature is the special therapeutic energy conservation section. If you want to increase your ability to perform daily living activities and decrease the workload of breathing, then Functional Fitness for COPD and Asthma is a good option
