Abstract:
Dyspnea (breathing discomfort) in people with COPD is an issue that impacts quality of life. Breathing discomfort can have negative emotional, physical, and mental effects due to chest/lung tightness, anxiety, and fear. By analyzing data of breathing perceptions and breathing patterns of participants, this study aims to determine the effects of breathing discomfort on speaking in people with COPD. The study also looks at which speaking tasks cause the most amount of breathing discomfort and why that may be.
