World Lung Health Day, in Zagreb: Public health campaign “Don't worry”
On World Lung Health Day the campaign was presented along with an interesting program that included a panel that hosted leading experts in the field of public health and respiratory diseases.
The panel was led by the president of the Jedra Association Mrs. Sandra Karabatić, MScN, BSN, RN, PhD student, who also emphasized the importance of the campaign and mention the story of U.S.
Navy Officer Jake D. during his stay in Afghanistan he ran into an explosive device with a vehicle, looked down to see his legs that were almost completely cut off below the knee.
At that moment, he remembered the breathing exercise he had learned as young officer. Thanks to that exercise, he stayed calm enough to call for help and wrap his own legs before he fainted. Later he was told that if he had not done so, he would have bled to death.
If a simple breathing exercise helped Jake under such an extreme situation, similar techniques can certainly help with the usual stress in the workplace, in everyday life. The combination of the COVID-19 pandemic and the fight for social justice have only exacerbated the anxiety in every day. Studies show that this kind of stress interferes with our abilities. With proper breathing technics, we can learn to deal with stress and manage negative emotions.
