Clinical Review: Sleep apnoea - A survey of breathing retraining

Clinical Review: Sleep apnoea - A survey of breathing retraining


By Mary Birch, Australian Nursing Journal October 2012, Vol 20, No. 4, pages 40-41.

This article published in the Australian Nursing Journal , October 2012 presents findings from a comprehensive survey of Buteyko lnstitute practitioners' experiences in teaching breathing retraining to clients with sleep apnoea. Survey findings indicate the role of breathing retraining using the Buteyko lnstitute Method for sleep apnoea needs to be scientifically evaluated. If clinical trials are successful, this method could provide an additional approach for people who cannot tolerate CPAP or who would prefer not to use equipment or devices to alleviate their sleep apnoea.
