Keywords:Effective Cough, YBE, Breathlessness, PTB, patients.
Introduction: The decrease of vital lung capacity on pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) patients can reduce
oxygen supply to the lungs. Lung capacity is very crucial within breathing process; decreased its capacity
can cause the distruption functions in the body’s cells, which leads to the breathlessness on tuberculosis

Regional Public Hospital, DR.M.Yunus, Bengkulu.
