‘Catch your breath’ is an exhibition of objects, documents, books, art works and stories that explores the meaning of breath and experiences of breathlessness, created in partnership with the Life of Breath project.
Vocal coach and music therapist Phoene Cave explains the value of singing for people with lung disease.
As part of the Catch Your Breath research project, patients experiencing breathlessness have taken part in poetry workshops, finding new ways to express their experiences of their conditions.
Something as seemingly simple as measuring breath and lung capacity can be dramatically affected by assumptions and biases in studies, as recent research into spirometry has shown.
A new trail through the RCP garden of medicinal plants highlights species used to treat lung diseases and breathlessness in the past and today.
