Abstract

The breath is an essential involuntary activity for sustaining the life and any uncompromised event could disturb it severely. Those ill effects could result in chronic diseases such as asthma, upper respiratory tract infection, chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD), d bronchiectasis and breathing complications.  The inhalation therapy is recommended for those patients and the Nebulizers are much useful in clearing the obstacles in the air ways. The current study focused on the evaluation of efficiency of the twin technique that enhances the respiratory efficiency in the chronic obstructive patients.
