If you mean the breathing into the mouth, it is called 'mouth to mouth resuscitation', though it is often shortened to 'mouth to mouth'. ;-)

I don't think we have a special word for that. If someone is swimming and takes their head out of the water to breathe, we'd probably say 'take a breath'. ;-)

I usually continue breathing while I am bathing. It's a habit. :wink:
