Playing a wind instrument can help sufferers of Asthma

Published: Wed May 14, 2008  News Feed

The following extract is from a Music Industries Association newsletter:

Asthma is serious; 5.1 million people in the UK have asthma, every 7 hours someone in the UK dies from asthma. 75% of hospital admissions due to asthma are avoidable (source - Asthma UK). Learning to play a wind instrument teaches the sufferer to breathe properly and can also improve lung function. Therefore, when asthmatics get an attack they are less likely to panic. People who rely on inhalers or even steroid treatment to stave off their breathlessness and panic attacks can minimise the impact asthma has on their lives - naturally. Recent research found significant improvement in the condition of children with asthma who learned to play wind instruments."
