Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone knew of any good face masks for COPD sufferers, as I have bought a few online but find when I put them on they restrict my breathing.
Any good face masks for us? - British Lung Foun...
I read that face masks are exempt for COPD and those
with asthma and breathing difficulties.
Which masks have you found unhelpful teresa?
Have you tried the Elle masks?
I have the Elle ones, very pleased with them, 5 in a pack and washable. I believe they've improved since my purchase several weeks ago.
There was a pattern and instructions in yesterday's Sunday Times' Style magazine I might have a go at. P
R u breathing ok through these peege?
I feel like a heavy breather every time I go out and that’s without a mask
Yes, just a bit tricky when it gets hot. I wear in local small Co-op, Sains, pharmacy (so 20 minutes tops) & very occasionally the post office along with disposable gloves. I'm not shielding, and sometimes needs must.
what about a face shield? they cover eyes nose and mouth and dont restrict breathing at all. I think if using oxygen with the nasal canula the shield would still work. Plus if you have coughing spasm its easy to slide a tissue in the hand from under the bottom of shield so it is still covering the face. Love mine, and so easy to clean as well, I use proper microfibre cloth, and only downside is you must be careful where you keep it to avoid scratching.
