Notes
  • Current research indicates considerable variation in everyday breathing intensity for individuals with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). This evidence highlights the importance of coaching patients to effectively manage breathing intensity, in particular, to recognize levels of breathing intensity, select the right action for the level of breathing intensity, and call for professional support when self-management does not work. As part of coaching, healthcare professionals evaluate breathing intensity and make treatment decisions, relying heavily on self-report. Patients use their own words (natural language) in self-reports, contributing rich information for self-management that is not captured by objective measurement of breathing intensity. Moreover, early evidence suggests that natural language offers other clues about breathing intensity, for example negative emotion words increase as breathing intensity increases.
