When I am getting very breathless I find pursed lip breathing does not seem to expel the trapped air from my lower lungs, which then builds up leading to hyperventilation and panic. I have found though that breathing out hard, steadlily and as from low down the lungs as possible then taking a normal breath in seems to do the trick much more efficiently. I thought I'd pass this on as it may work for someone else. It's all trial and error and what works for one person may not always work for another. Good luck! Andy
