 Re: Oboe and emphysema or COPD

I'm not a doctor, but I'm willing to give my opinion. Fortunately for oboe players, the oboe is not a permanent thing attached to our bodies forcing us to breath unnaturally 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Rather it's something we have total control over. Even when playing, there are plenty of opportunities to breathe normally. Sure, you breathe rather unnaturally while you're playing but the time one does this per day/week I wouldn't think is enough to cause long term problems. Thank God we sleep at night and allow our bodies to take over, replenish us, and make us feel rested. Plus, our bodies build up an endurance. I wouldn't worry about this. I bet there is another culprit to your illness.

I'm sorry to hear this and I sincerely wish you the best of luck.
