Cold Therapy Breathing Technique for Chest Tube Pain

December 26, 2022

Studies have shown that using the Cold Therapy breathing technique can effectively reduce chest tube pain caused by issues like swelling, muscle tension, and nerve inflammation, particularly in patients with chest tubes. This pain management is crucial for their mobility and respiratory performance. 

Utilizing Cold Therapy before engaging in deep breathing and coughing exercises has demonstrated positive results. Interestingly, demographic factors such as age, gender, marital status, medical history, smoking, drinking, and education didn’t significantly impact chest tube pain management before and after employing the Cold Therapy method. 

However, a notable challenge persists as many patients in the study were unaware of the effectiveness of these techniques, primarily noticing their breathing when experiencing discomfort or pain.
