Background: Respiratory diseases are the most common chronic diseases in the world. The stark reality is that, each year, 4 million people die prematurely from chronic respiratory disease, In 2015, 10.4 million people developed tuberculosis (TB) and 1.4 million people died from it. Breathing pattern and activities of daily livings are the basis of abnormal patterns in all types of respiratory problems.
Method: Quantitative approach with experimental research design was adopted to study 40 patients with respiratory problems aged between 20-60 years were taken. The duration of the study was 2 weeks & data was collected on day zero and at the end of 2nd week. The subjects were divided into two groups A, and B group. 20 patients in each group were distributed by consecutive sampling. Each sample was assessed according to modified London chest activity of daily living scale for physical parameters and self-structured observational check list of the physiological parameters. Abdominal breathing Exercise was given to experimental group, and the control group receive regular treatment. Post-test was done from each groups. Statistics were applied by using SPSS 20.0.0.
Result: Results were calculated by using 0.05 level of significance. On the basis of statistical analysis the p value for group A(P<.181) is more than 0.05. So the intervention on group A (P>0.05) group B. So Abdominal breathing exercise proves more effective than regular treatment among patients with respiratory problems.
Conclusion; Abdominal exercise breathing exercise is more effective than regular treatment on selected physical and physiological parameters among respiratory problems.
