The Breathing thinking function (BTF) approach
Respiratory Medicine
This leaflet is designed to help you manage your stable long-term breathlessness. 
Breathlessness can be a difficult symptom to live with, but there are ways you can reduce how it affects your life. Sometimes, the ways we try to cope can unfortunately make the feeling worse. An important first step is to understand how your breathlessness develops, which can then lead to you finding ways to help your breathing.
