I'm discovering that swimming is really forcing me to breathe slowly, carefully, and deliberately. It should help to increase my capacity, too. Slow and steady!

I would use your peak flow meters and check them before exercise and during if you have problems and at the end to see where your setting at. That would tell you if your getting in the yellow or red levels during exercise.

Really good questions. I look forward to seeing all the answers.
I usually just use my inhaler before I walk/exercise and again when I cannot breath any more. Sometimes I have found if I just stop, breathe deeply, slowly, don't "panic" breathe, then my lungs start functioning better. But to know how much oxygen I am getting...???? Haven't a clue!!
Also, have found...just a short time doing without proper breathing/oxygen gives me an extreme headache, which I am certain is not good and may lead to other problems. ????

How do you get your lungs to work at full capacity instead of half?

Also, when excercising how do you know if your oxygen levels slip too low and what to do about it when exercising? (we do not have the oximitmeter on our fingers to see levels so????)
