Background: Respiratory diseases are typical issue of the airway that hampers the normal airflow and leads to airway inflammation. The impacts of breathing exercises on respiratory diseases have been concentrated to discover its role on improvement of respiratory status. Objective: To estimate breathing exercises on improvement in respiratory status among patients with respiratory diseases. Material and method: A pre experimental, one group pre-test post-test design was adopted on 50 samples with respiratory diseases selected by convenient sampling technique from Medicine (male and female), Pulmonary Medicine, CTVS ward of Guwahati Medical College and Hospital, Assam. Data collected through structured interview schedule for demographic and clinical variables and “modified respiratory status scale” for assessing respiratory status. The group received intervention for 3 minutes one time daily for 7 days. Post-test was done on 7th day. In this study, deep breathing exercise and pursed lip breathing exercise were used. Data were analyzed by using the software package SPSS 2.0 version. Results: the pre-test respiratory status mean was 7.6 and post-test respiratory status mean was 4.98 mean difference was 2.62. The difference in mean scores shows a significant improvement of Respiratory status among patients with Respiratory Diseases. The t’ value of the breathing capacity by using modified respiratory status scale (13.55) was much higher than the ‘p’ value at 0. 05 level of significance. So, Breathing Exercises (Deep Breathing Exercise and Pursed Lip Breathing Exercise) was effective which improve the respiratory status among Respiratory Disease patients. Respiratory status is associated with Gender, History of previous hospitalization and no association with clinical variables. Conclusion: The study concluded that breathing exercises is effective in improvement of respiratory status among patients with respiratory diseases.
