Is steam useful for soothing the lungs for COPD patients. I do deep breathing exercises but sometimes while deep breathing I experience discomfort in the rib cage just above the abdomen. I am also prone to bloating.
Steam inhalation can better or worsen the situation. It is individual variation and you can try. Deep and slow breathing do help.
