A 21-year-old member asked:

How can I exercise when I can't breathe?

Dr. Dean Giannone

Slow & Gradual: Aerobic/cardiovascular exercise will eventually train the lungs and the rest of the body to handle oxygen more efficiently, but must be initiated and advanced carefully in the context of chronic lung disease. Let your symptoms guide you, realize your limitations and try not to be a hero - this will keep you safe.

Can you catch norovirus from someone breathing on you?

No: It is spread from fecal contamination of things subsequently swallowed. Aerosol inaction of particles swallowed may also occur. It is not spread from breathing it in.
A 25-year-old member asked:

Will I stop breathing during anesthesia?

7 doctor answers18 doctors weighed in
Dr. Jon Krook
General Surgery 24 years experience
No: When you undergo general anesthesia, you are deep enough that you would not breathe without support. The most important duty of the anesthesia team managing you is that you continue breathing. That is why they intubate you (pass a breathing tube down your trachea), place you on a ventilator, and monitor your vitals and other parameters very closely.

A 38-year-old member asked:

Can I buy anything that will prevent me from breathing cigarette smoke?

2 doctor answers2 doctors weighed in
Dr. Joseph Roosth
Internal Medicine 35 years experience
No and Yes: Well you do not need to buy anything, but stay away from smokers and not smoke yourself. If there was something like this available, it would make someone very wealthy. Seems i read the most powerful toxic fume masks used by industrial folks working with hazardous fumes will only block about 90% of nearby cigarette smoke. Would not quote that figure.
