      My Husband had IPF and we found when he was having difficulties with his breathing he would get out his mobile phone and start playing games or using his phone and this was one way to settle his breathing and the stress associated with breathing.  It usually worked and took his mind off his breathing problems and they settled down.  He always had his phone with him.
