A Matter of Life and Breath

Tue 11 Jun @ 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM


There is often a frustrating mismatch between the experience of breathlessness and measurements of lung function. Someone with objectively poor lung function may feel fine, whilst another may feel very unwell despite good test results. Why is that?

Exploring this discrepancy is at the very core of the Life of Breath research project and the Catch Your Breath exhibition. This event will feature very brief presentations from Life of Breath researchers, drawing on a range of different perspectives, including the lived experience of breathlessness, patient accounts of healthcare, concepts of ‘normal’ and historical ideas about the connections between mind and body. The presentations will be followed by a panel discussion and the opportunity for audience questions.
