It includes airflow, lung volume, neural and reflex controls, mechanoreceptors, breathing patterns, etc.Exercise Test: Controlled physical activity which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used.Exercise Therapy: A regimen or plan of physical activities designed and prescribed for specific therapeutic goals. Its purpose is to restore normal musculoskeletal function or to reduce pain caused by diseases or injuries.Work of Breathing: RESPIRATORY MUSCLE contraction during INHALATION. The work is accomplished in three phases: LUNG COMPLIANCE work, that required to expand the LUNGS against its elastic forces; tissue resistance work, that required to overcome the viscosity of the lung and chest wall structures; and AIRWAY RESISTANCE work, that required to overcome airway resistance during the movement of air into the lungs. Work of breathing does not refer to expiration, which is entirely a passive process caused by elastic recoil of the lung and chest cage. (Guyton, Textbook of Medical Physiology, 8th ed, p406)Exercise: Physical activity which is usually regular and done with the intention of improving or maintaining PHYSICAL FITNESS or HEALTH. Contrast with PHYSICAL EXERTION which is concerned largely with the physiologic and metabolic response to energy expenditure.Respiration: The act of breathing with the LUNGS, consisting of INHALATION, or the taking into the lungs of the ambient air, and of EXHALATION, or the expelling of the modified air which contains more CARBON DIOXIDE than the air taken in (Blakiston's Gould Medical Dictionary, 4th ed.). This does not include tissue respiration (= OXYGEN CONSUMPTION) or cell respiration (= CELL RESPIRATION).Exercise Tolerance: The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.Mouth Breathing: Abnormal breathing through the mouth, usually associated with obstructive disorders of the nasal passages.Physical Exertion: Expenditure of energy during PHYSICAL ACTIVITY.

It is characterized by a greater than 10% change between the maximum and the minimum sinus cycle length or 120 milliseconds.Asthma: A form of bronchial disorder with three distinct components: airway hyper-responsiveness (RESPIRATORY HYPERSENSITIVITY), airway INFLAMMATION, and intermittent AIRWAY OBSTRUCTION. It is characterized by spasmodic contraction of airway smooth muscle, WHEEZING, and dyspnea (DYSPNEA, PAROXYSMAL).Meditation: A state of consciousness in which the individual eliminates environmental stimuli from awareness so that the mind can focus on a single thing, producing a state of relaxation and relief from stress. A wide variety of techniques are used to clear the mind of stressful outside interferences. It includes meditation therapy. (Mosby's Medical, Nursing, and Allied Health Dictionary, 4th ed)Sick Building Syndrome: A group of symptoms that are two- to three-fold more common in those who work in large, energy-efficient buildings, associated with an increased frequency of headaches, lethargy, and dry skin.

Group psychological treatment for chest pain with normal coronary arteries. (1/265)

We used a psychological treatment package (education, relaxation, breathing training, graded exposure to activity and exercise, and challenging automatic thoughts about heart disease) to treat 60 patients who had continuing chest pain despite cardiological reassurance following haemodynamically normal angiography. The treatment was delivered in six sessions over eight weeks to groups of up to six patients. The patients kept daily records of chest pain episode frequency and nitrate use. Questionnaires were used to assess anxiety, depression and disability. Exercise tolerance was tested by treadmill electrocardiography, with capnographic assessment of hyperventilation. The results were compared with waiting-list controls. Treatment significantly reduced chest pain episodes (p < 0.01) from median 6.5 to 2.5 per week. There were significant improvements in anxiety and depression scores (p < 0.05), disability rating (p < 0.0001) and exercise tolerance (p < 0.05), and these were maintained at six month follow-up. Treatment reduced the prevalence of hyperventilation from 54% to 34% (p < 0.01) but not the prevalence of ECG-positive exercise tests. Patients continuing to attribute their pain to heart disease had poorer outcomes. Group psychological treatment for non-cardiac chest pain is feasible, reduces pain, psychological morbidity and disability, and improves exercise tolerance.  (+info)

Physiotherapy for airway clearance in adults. (2/265)

Techniques for augmenting, when necessary, the normal mucociliary and cough clearance mechanisms of the lungs are not new, but, in more recent years, techniques have been developed which are effective, comfortable and can be used independent of an assistant in the majority of adolescents and adults. Postural drainage with chest clapping and chest shaking has, in most parts of the world, been replaced by the more effective techniques of the active cycle of breathing, autogenic drainage, R-C Cornet, Flutter, positive expiratory pressure mask, high-frequency chest wall oscillation and intrapulmonary percussive ventilation. Glossopharyngeal breathing is being considered again and is often a useful technique for increasing the effectiveness of cough in patients with tetraplegia or neuromuscular disorders. The evidence in support of these techniques is variable, and the literature is confusing and conflicting. There may or may not be significant differences among the techniques in the short or long term. Many of the regimens now include the forced expiratory manoeuvre of a "huff" and this has probably increased the effectiveness of airway clearance. If objective differences are small, individual preferences and cultural influences may be significant in increasing adherence to treatment and in the selection of an appropriate regimen or regimens for an individual patient.  (+info)

Effect of forced breathing on ventilatory functions of the lung. (3/265)

Ventilatory functions were studied in 36 male and 35 female subjects (mean age 18.5 years), who underwent six weeks course in forced breathing. Ventilatory functions were studied in the form of Forced Vital Capacity (FVC), Forced Expiratory Volume at the end of one second as % of FVC (FEV1%), Maximum Voluntary Ventilation (MVV), Peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR) and Breath Holding Time. Some of these ventilatory functions were found to be increased after a course of forced breathing.  (+info)

Breathing techniques--adjunctive treatment modalities for asthma? A systematic review. (4/265)

Breathing techniques are used by a large proportion of asthma sufferers. This systematic review was aimed at determining whether or not these interventions are effective. Four independent literature searches identified six randomized controlled trials. The results of these studies are not uniform. Collectively the data imply that physiotherapeutic breathing techniques may have some potential in benefiting patients with asthma. The safety issue has so far not been addressed satisfactorily. It is concluded that too few studies have been carried out to warrant firm judgements. Further rigorous trials should be carried out in order to redress this situation.  (+info)

Thixotropy of rib cage respiratory muscles in normal subjects. (5/265)

In this study, we searched for signs of thixotropic behavior in human rib cage respiratory muscles. If rib cage respiratory muscles possess thixotropic properties similar to those seen in other skeletal muscles in animals and humans, we expect resting rib cage circumference would be temporarily changed after deep rib cage inflations or deflations and that these aftereffects would be particularly pronounced in trials that combine conditioning deep inflations or deflations with forceful isometric contractions of the respiratory muscles. We used induction plethysmography to obtain a continuous relative measure of rib cage circumference changes during quiet breathing in 12 healthy subjects. Rib cage position at the end of the expiratory phase (EEP) was used as an index of resting rib cage circumference. Comparisons were made between EEP values of five spontaneous breaths immediately before and after six types of conditioning maneuvers: deep inspiration (DI); deep expiration (DE); DI combined with forceful effort to inspire (FII) or expire (FEI); and DE combined with forceful effort to inspire (FIE) or expire (FEE), both with temporary airway occlusion. The aftereffects of the conditioning maneuvers on EEP values were consistent with the supposition that human respiratory muscles possess thixotropic properties. EEP values were significantly enhanced after all conditioning maneuvers involving DI, and the aftereffects were particularly pronounced in the FII and FEI trials. In contrast, EEP values were reduced after DE maneuvers. The aftereffects were statistically significant for the FEE and FIE, but not DE, trials. It is suggested that respiratory muscle thixotropy may contribute to the pulmonary hyperinflation seen in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.  (+info)

Inspiratory muscle training in patients with cystic fibrosis. (6/265)

Little information is available about the effects of inspiratory muscle training in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF). In this study the effects of inspiratory-threshold loading in patients with CF on strength and endurance of the inspiratory muscles, pulmonary function, exercise capacity, dyspnoea and fatigue were evaluated. Sixteen patients were assigned to one of two groups using the minimization method: eight patients in the training group and eight patients in the control group. The training was performed using an inspiratory-threshold loading device. Patients were instructed to use the threshold trainer 20 min a day, 5 days a week for 6 weeks. Patients in the training group trained at inspiratory threshold loads up to 40% of maximal static inspiratory pressure (Pimax) and patients in the control group got 'sham' training at a load of 10% of Pimax. No significant differences were found among the two groups in gender, age, weight, height, pulmonary function, exercise capacity, inspiratory-muscle strength and inspiratory-muscle endurance before starting the training programme. Mean (SD) age in the control group was 19 (5.5) years, mean (SD) age in the training group was 17 (5.2) years. Mean FEV1 in both groups was 70% predicted, mean inspiratory-muscle strength in both groups was above 100% predicted. All patients except one, assigned to the training group, completed the programme. After 6 weeks of training, mean inspiratory-muscle endurance (% Pimax) in the control group increased from 50% to 54% (P = 0.197); in the training group mean inspiratory muscle endurance (% Pimax) increased from 49% to 66% (P = 0.003). Statistical analysis showed that the change in inspiratory-muscle endurance (% Pimax) in the training group was significantly higher than in the control group (P = 0.012). After training, in the training group there was a tendency of improvement in Pimax with an increase from 105 to 123% predicted, which just fell short of statistical significance (P = 0.064). After training no significant differences were found in changes from baseline in pulmonary function, exercise capacity, dyspnoea and fatigue. It is concluded that low-intensity inspiratory-threshold loading at 40% of Pimax was sufficient to elicit an increased inspiratory-muscle endurance in patients with CF.  (+info)

Breathing-control lowers blood pressure. (7/265)

We hypothesise that routinely applied short sessions of slow and regular breathing can lower blood pressure (BP). Using a new technology BIM (Breathe with Interactive Music), hypertensive patients were guided towards slow and regular breathing. The present study evaluates the efficacy of the BIM in lowering BP. We studied 33 patients (23M/10F), aged 25-75 years, with uncontrolled BP. Patients were randomised into either active treatment with the BIM (n = 18) or a control treatment with a Walkman (n = 15). Treatment at home included either musically-guided breathing exercises with the BIM or listening to quiet music played by a Walkman for 10 min daily for 8 weeks. BP and heart rate were measured both at the clinic and at home with an Omron IC BP monitor. Clinic BP levels were measured at baseline, and after 4 and 8 weeks of treatment. Home BP measurements were taken daily, morning and evening, throughout the study. The two groups were matched by initial BP, age, gender, body mass index and medication status. The BP change at the clinic was -7.5/-4.0 mm Hg in the active treatment group, vs -2.9/-1.5 mm Hg in the control group (P = 0.001 for systolic BP). Analysis of home-measured data showed an average BP change of -5.0/-2.7 mm Hg in the active treatment group and -1.2/+0.9 mm Hg in the control group. Ten out of 18 (56%) were defined as responders in the active treatment group but only two out of 14 (14%) in the control group (P = 0.02). Thus, breathing exercise guided by the BIM device for 10 min daily is an effective non-pharmacological modality to reduce BP.  (+info)

Treating hypertension with a device that slows and regularises breathing: a randomised, double-blind controlled study. (8/265)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the efficacy of a new device, which slows and regularises breathing, as a non-pharmacological treatment of hypertension and thus to evaluate the contribution of breathing modulation in the blood pressure (BP) reduction. DESIGN AND SETTING: Randomised, double-blind controlled study, carried out in three urban family practice clinics in Israel. PATIENTS: Sixty-five male and female hypertensives, either receiving antihypertensive drug therapy or unmedicated. Four patients dropped out at the beginning of the study. INTERVENTION: Self treatment at home, 10 minutes daily for 8 consecutive weeks, using either the device (n = 32), which guides the user towards slow and regular breathing using musical sound patterns, or a Walkman, with which patients listened to quiet music (n = 29). Medication was unchanged 2 months prior to and during the study period. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Systolic BP, diastolic BP and mean arterial pressure (MAP) changes from baseline. RESULTS: BP reduction in the device group was significantly greater than a predetermined 'clinically meaningful threshold' of 10.0, 5.0 and 6.7 mm Hg for the systolic BP, diastolic BP and MAP respectively (P = 0.035, P = 0.0002 and P = 0.001). Treatment with the device reduced systolic BP, diastolic BP and MAP by 15.2, 10.0 and 11.7 mm Hg respectively, as compared to 11.3, 5.6 and 7.5 mm Hg (P = 0.14, P = 0.008, P = 0.03) with the Walkman. Six months after treatment had stopped, diastolic BP reduction in the device group remained greater than the 'threshold' (P < 0.02) and also greater than in the walkman group (P = 0.001). CONCLUSIONS: The device was found to be efficacious in reducing high BP during 2 months of self-treatment by patients at home. Breathing pattern modification appears to be an important component in this reduction.  (+info)

In this randomised controlled trial subjects taught the Eucapnic Buteyko technique had reduced asthma symptoms and bronchodilator use compared with the other two groups but there was no difference in bronchial responsiveness or FEV1. No difference was seen between the PCLE and PCLE placebo device for any outcome measure.. A television programme in 1998 in the UK generated considerable media and patient interest in the Buteyko technique. The course used in this study, the Eucapnic Buteyko technique, was available to the general public. It includes breathing exercises, taping the mouth at night, strongly discouraging the use of β2 agonists except in emergencies, advice on lifestyle, and strong practitioner encouragement. Yoga breathing exercises (pranayama) involves mental concentration to cause a reduction in breathing frequency, a 1:2 ratio of inspiration to expiration, and a pause at the end of inspiration and expiration. The expiratory resistance in the PCLE imposes a reduction in breathing ...
Generally a person unconsciously takes several deep breaths every hour. However, deep breathing can be painful for the people suffering from injuries or diseases caused by trauma and after surgery wounds and neuromuscular disorders. Breathing exercise machines can promote deep breathing and clear mucus from the airway. They can help clear the fluid accumulated by the lungs and avert the breathing issues.. Increasing cases of lung disorders such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), comorbidities, and asthma are considered as the major market drivers. In addition, growing air pollution levels in major cities and active smoking habits are also some of the significant factors that augment the market for breathing exercise devices. However, lack of reimbursement policies and high costs associated with these devices can hinder the overall growth over the forecast period.. The global breathing exercise machine market is categorized into product types, end-users or applications, and regions. ...

Deep breathing exercises are widely used in the postoperative care to prevent or reduce pulmonary complications, but no scientific evidence for the efficacy has been found after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery. The aim of the thesis was to describe postoperative pulmonary function and to evaluate the efficacy of deep breathing exercises performed with or without a blow bottle device for positive expiratory pressure (PEP) 10 cmH2O or an inspiratory resistance-positive expiratory pressure (IR-PEP) mask with an inspiratory pressure of -5 cmH2O and an expiratory pressure of +10 to +15 cmH2O. Patients undergoing CABG were instructed to perform 30 slow deep breaths hourly during daytime for the first four postoperative days. Patient management was similar in the groups, except for the different breathing techniques. Measurements were performed preoperatively, on the fourth postoperative day and four months after surgery. The immediate effect of the deep breathing exercises was examined ...

Hypertension is a complex chronic condition characterized by elevated arterial blood pressure. Management of hypertension includes non-pharmacologic strategies, which may include techniques that effectively reduce autonomic sympathetic activity. Respiratory exercises improve autonomic control over cardiovascular system and attenuate muscle metaboreflex. Because of these effects, respiratory exercises may be useful to lower blood pressure in subjects with hypertension. This randomized, double-blind clinical trial will test the efficacy of inspiratory muscle training in reducing blood pressure in adults with essential hypertension. Subjects are randomly allocated to intervention or control groups. Intervention consists of inspiratory muscle training loaded with 40 % of maximum inspiratory pressure, readjusted weekly. Control sham intervention consists of unloaded exercises. Systolic and diastolic blood pressures are co-primary endpoint measures assessed with 24 h ambulatory blood pressure ...

In heart failure (HF) patients, dyspnea (shortness of breath), a key contributor to and the strongest predictor of a chief reason for hospital readmission with fatigue, are the primary reasons for modification in function leading to decreased physical activity (PA). Dyspnea and fatigue lead to activity avoidance, subsequent muscle de-conditioning, and further increases of dyspnea at even lower levels of activity. Depression, because of its moderate relationship both with perceived functional status and dyspnea, can further diminish PA and increase disability in activities of daily living (ADLs). Strategies to minimize or mitigate dyspnea and to boost motivation are imperative for improving adherence to PA, and, in turn, improving fatigue, muscle weakness, PA itself, functional status, disability, and depression in HF patients. Thus, diaphragmatic breathing retraining (DBR) or deep breathing with a slow breathing pattern, a focus on decreasing dyspnea, and mediated by Self-efficacy for DBR and ...
U.S., Jan. 18 -- ClinicalTrials.gov registry received information related to the study (NCT03021252) titled Respiratory Muscle Training in Stroke Swallowing Disorders on Jan. 10. Brief Summary: Clinical randomized clinical trial to assess the effectiveness of incorporating inspiratory and expiratory muscle training (IEMT) in the rehabilitation of stroke patients with dysphagia in terms of functional outcomes, comorbidities, survival and quality of life. This project also incorporates a longitudinal study to assess the clinical impact of dysphagia on body composition and nutritional status in stroke patients. Study Start Date: March 2017 Study Type: Interventional Condition: Swallowing Disorder Stroke Respiratory Muscle Training Malnutrition Intervention: Device: High intensity IEMT Training load will be the maximum inspiratory / expiratory load defined according to patient tolerance equivalent to 10 maximal repetitions (RM) as 10 consecutive inspirations / expirations (x 5 set), twice a day, ...
It is unknown whether the respiratory muscles contribute to exercise-induced increases in plasma interleukin-6 (IL-6) concentration, if this is related to diaphragm fatigue, and whether inspiratory muscle training (IMT) attenuates the plasma IL-6 response to whole body exercise and/or a volitional mimic of the exercise hyperpnea. Twelve healthy males were divided equally into an IMT or placebo (PLA) group, and before and after a 6-wk intervention they undertook, on separate days, 1 h of 1) passive rest, 2) cycling exercise at estimated maximal lactate steady state power (EX), and 3) volitional hyperpnea at rest, which mimicked the breathing and respiratory muscle recruitment patterns achieved during EX (HYPEX). Plasma IL-6 concentration remained unchanged during passive rest. The plasma IL-6 response to EX was reduced following IMT (main effect of intervention, P = 0.039) but not PLA (P = 0.272). Plasma IL-6 concentration increased during HYPEX (main effect of time, P , 0.01) and was unchanged ...
The plasma concentration of interleukin-6 (IL-6) increases during cycling exercise (EX) (Starkie et al. J. Physiol 2001; 533:585-591) and inspiratory resistive breathing (IRB) (Vassilakopoulos et al. Am. J. Physiol 1999; 277:R1013-R1019). Whether inspiratory muscle training (IMT) can attenuate the magnitude of the IL-6 response to EX and volitional hyperpnoea (VH) rather than IRB is unknown. Therefore, we tested the hypothesis that IMT would reduce the IL-6 response to EX and/or VH.. Twelve male participants performed either 6 weeks of pressure-threshold IMT (n=6) or placebo (PLA) training (n=6). Before and after training, participants undertook three 1 hour experimental trials on separate days: (i) passive rest; (ii) EX; and (iii) VH. EX was performed at maximum lactate steady state power. In VH, participants voluntarily mimicked at rest the breathing and respiratory muscle recruitment pattern attained during EX.. IL-6 peaked immediately after EX for both the IMT and PLA groups (6.75 ± 1.6 and ...
A recent National Health Interview Survey reported that breathing exercises were the second most common complementary and alternative medicine practice in the United States, following only the use of natural products. With such widespread interest in breathing exercises, alone or as a component of practices such as meditation, a need exists for research that examines not only its efficacy, but also investigates potential mechanisms of action. Indeed, a recent National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) Meditation Workshop recommended research to clarify biological pathways by which meditation practices, including breathing exercises, can impact health. To explore mechanisms underlying the health effects of breathing exercises, new translational tools are needed that can measure breathing patterns in both the clinic and natural environment. The primary objective of the present proposal is the application of a new technology to the investigation of pathways by which ...
The current body of clinical research work confirms the complex mechanisms that are in place between the respiratory system and the circulatory systems of the human body. This paper attempts to capture that information in a form that addresses the scope of the work and how it applies to the respiratory muscle training uniquely provided by PowerLung products.Twelve (12) sets of muscles are used in breathing. These muscle groups are used for both inhale and exhale. Principles of strength training in the literature show improved co-ordination and efficiency results by training both agonist and antagonist muscle groups. (Sale 1988) Like other sets of muscles, "the respiratory muscles can be trained for improvement in strength, endurance or both." (Pardy, et al 1988 ...
We assessed the effects of respiratory muscle training (RMT) in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) on vital capacity (VC), maximal static inspiratory (PImax) and expiratory (PEmax) pressures and maximal voluntary ventilation (MVV). Eight patients
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Cough protects the lungs from aspiration. We investigated whether respiratory muscle training may improve respiratory muscle and cough function, and potentially reduce pneumonia risk in acute stroke. METHODS: We conducted a single-blind randomized placebo-controlled trial in 82 patients with stroke (mean age, 64±14 years; 49 men) within 2 weeks of stroke onset. Participants were masked to treatment allocation and randomized to 4 weeks of daily expiratory (n=27), inspiratory (n=26), or sham training (n=25), using threshold resistance devices. Primary outcome was the change in peak expiratory cough flow of maximal voluntary cough. Intention-to-treat analyses were conducted using ANCOVA, adjusting for baseline prognostic covariates. RESULTS: There were significant improvements in the mean maximal inspiratory (14 cmH2O; P,0.0001) and expiratory (15 cmH2O; P,0.0001) mouth pressure and peak expiratory cough flow of voluntary cough (74 L/min; P=0.0002) between baseline and 28 ...
The effects of positioning and pursed-lip breathing exercise on dyspnea and anxiety status in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
BACKGROUND: After stroke, pneumonia is a relevant medical complication that can be precipitated by aspiration of saliva, liquids, or solid food. Swallowing difficulty and aspiration occur in a significant proportion of stroke survivors. Cough, an important mechanism protecting the lungs from inhaled materials, can be impaired in stroke survivors, and the likely cause for this impairment is central weakness of the respiratory musculature. Thus, respiratory muscle training in acute stroke may be useful in the recovery of respiratory muscle and cough function, and may thereby reduce the risk of pneumonia. The present study is a pilot study, aimed at investigating the validity and feasibility of this approach by exploring effect size, safety, and patient acceptability of the intervention. METHODS/DESIGN: Adults with moderate to severe stroke impairment (National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) score 5 to 25 at the time of admission) are recruited within 2 weeks of stroke onset. ...

Diaphragmatic breathing, or deep breathing, is breathing that is done by contracting the diaphragm, a muscle located horizontally between the thoracic cavity and abdominal cavity. Air enters the lungs and the chest rises and the belly expands during this type of breathing. Diaphragmatic breathing is also known scientifically as eupnea, which is a natural and relaxed form of breathing in all mammals. Eupnea occurs in mammals whenever they are in a state of relaxation, i.e. when there is no clear and present danger in their environment. According to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health, "12.7 percent of American adults [have] used deep-breathing exercises... for health purposes," which it describes as follows, "Deep breathing involves slow and deep inhalation through the nose, usually to a count of 10, followed by slow and complete exhalation for a similar count. The process may be repeated 5 to 10 times, several times a day." According to the University of Texas Counseling ...

BACKGROUND: Asthma control is suboptimal, resulting in quality of life (QoL) impairment and costs. Breathing retraining exercises have evidence of effectiveness as adjuvant treatment, but are infrequently used.. OBJECTIVES: To transfer the contents of a brief (three-session) physiotherapist-delivered breathing retraining programme to a digital versatile disc (DVD) and booklet format; to compare the effectiveness of the self-guided intervention with that of face-to-face physiotherapy and usual care for QoL and other asthma-related outcomes; to perform a health economic assessment of both interventions; and to perform a process evaluation using quantitative and qualitative methods.. DESIGN: Parallel-group three-arm randomised controlled trial.. SETTING: General practice surgeries in the UK.. PARTICIPANTS: In total, 655 adults currently receiving asthma treatment with impaired asthma-related QoL were randomly allocated to the DVD ( n = 261), physiotherapist ( n = 132) and control (usual care) ( n ...

By Lorraine Ereira. Guest Writer for Wake Up World. We all do it, all day, every day. Even while we sleep. In fact we never ever stop doing it. If we did we would die. But do we ever think about it? Do we realize just how much of an impact it has on our bodies, our minds and our overall health?. It is the simple act of respiration. Thats right - breathing! Believe it or not, there are different ways to breathe, which have different effects on the body and our health. But lets just take a look at two. Nose breathing which induces relaxation, calm, and improves health, and the other mouth breathing, which most of us do by default, because of the lives we lead, which contributes to many health concerns like elevated blood pressure and an increase in resting heart rate.. I would like to share with you an extract from my latest book Sports Pattern Release™. In this extract I explain how breathing effects the human body. I will then offer you a simple breathing technique to support better ...
Much emphasis is placed upon environmental factors in asthma prevention and treatment, but the profound role of breathing is not sufficiently acknowledged as a therapeutic option. Recent trials of breathing techniques, posture, relaxation and stress reduction confirm their importance in treating asthma and lung diseases.
Discussion. RMS was improved to a level superior to that witnessed in 50-59 yr females from the same demographic (Watsford et al., 2002), to a level of 30-39 yr females (Neder et al., 1999). An increase in RMS may improve exertional respiratory efficiency, thus impacting on submaximal walking performance. In turn, there may be decreased respiratory muscle blood flow during exercise, accounting for the improvement in oxygen consumption. Improved walking efficiency will have large implications for exercise participation and adherence in this age group, as many tasks undertaken by this age group are within this intensity range. These individuals may have the capacity to perform a greater quantity of exercise following RMT intervention and therefore have the capacity to maintain or improve health to a greater degree. Mobility impairments cause many older individuals to be restricted from performing exercise of moderate to high intensity. When attempting to improve fitness level, elevated intensity ...

Introduction: Dysfunctional breathing (DB) is a respiratory disorder associated with significant patient morbidity. It is characterized by unexplained breathlessnes and an abnormal breathing pattern, with combinations of erratic breathing, episodic breath holding and sighing, or hyperventilation. Treatment involves breathing retraining through respiratory physiotherapy. Recently, manual therapy has been used as a treatment component; but no evidence exists to validate its use. We sought to investigate the effects of manual therapy in addition to breathing retraining in patients with DB.. Methods: 60 subjects with primary DB were randomized into either breathing retraining (standard treatment; n=30) or breathing retraining plus manual therapy (intervention; n=30). Both groups received standardised respiratory physiotherapy: DB education; breathing retraining; home regime; audio disc. Subjects in the intervention group received additional manual therapy.. Results: No significant difference was ...

Each can have varying lengths and tempos. Phase 2, retention (Kumbhaka) is said to be an important part of the breathing process and helps enhance the level of vital energy in the human body. According to a study in the International Journal of Yoga:"Slow and deep breathing is efficient as it reduces the ventilation in the dead space of the lungs. Shallow breathing replenishes air only at the base of the lungs in contrast to deep breathing that replenishes the air in all parts of the lung.. It decreases the effect of stress and strain on the body by shifting the balance of the autonomic system predominantly toward the parasympathetic system and improves the physical and mental health. Many researchers have found pranayama to be beneficial in treating stress-related disorders … The effects of pranayama, when practiced with kumbhaka, are substantially more than pranayama practiced alone.". The study involved 12 weeks of modified slow breathing exercise in a modified pranayama (alternate nostril ...
Abstract Breathing exercises, alone or as a component of mind-body interventions such as meditation and yoga, have potential for amelioration of a wide range of acute and chronic disorders. The present proposal describes the application of a new translational tool for ambulatory monitoring of breathing to the investigation of the effects of a specific breathing exercise, mindful breathing (MB), on a major cardiovascular risk factor, blood pressure (BP). The new monitor enables continuous measurement, not only of breathing rate, but of CO2 in expired air (PetCO2) in the natural environment, as well as the clinic setting. The relevance of PetCO2 is that it co-varies with blood CO2, which in turn regulates acid- base balance, known to be vital for stable physiological function in all bodily tissues, and thus important to health. The present project proposes a study of MB effects on PetCO2, breathing rate, and BP in individuals with prehypertension. A first specific aim is to test the hypothesis ...
In view of these breathing variations, we tend to develop bad breathing habits that lead to high blood pressure. Since breathing is controllable, the bad breathing habits can be easily corrected.
And gradually work up to even longer. This controlled pattern of breathing will prevent the premature collapse of the airways, so lets try it. Breathe in through the nose…slowly breathe out. Again, breathe in Purse your lips. Breathe out slowly. Lengthen it. And lets move to rib cage breathing. I want you to concentrate on expanding the ribs with that breath. So place your hands on the sides of your lower ribs. Now, youre going to breathe in deep and low and push your ribs out against your hands. Lets try it. Breathe in…and breathe out. Do it again. Breathe out, slow and controlled. Lets do it again. Breathe in. Breathe out. And now well go to back breathing. I want you to check your balance. Make sure youre on your sit bones. Find that breast bone, and I want you to travel down to this little notch between your ribs. You can trace the ribs toward the back and then place your hands right back there. Youre going to breathe in and pretend youre wearing an apron thats on your back ...

When you suffer from stress (as most people do), its too hard to focus and be productive and too easy to have recurring irrational thoughts. It can also cause poor judgment and memory problems, and thats certainly not Bulletproof. A good way to combat stress is to use meditation and breathing exercises.. When you meditate, you practice the art of mindfulness, which allows you to choose which thoughts you want to focus on. It enables you to choose how you respond to your feelings instead of blinding reacting to them. Different ways of meditating include counting, mantras, mindfulness, positive self-talk, and controlled breathing exercises.. With controlled breathing, you want to breathe from your diaphragm, not your chest. Pull the air in through your nose all the way down into your belly, then exhale with your stomach first, using your diaphragm to push the air out of your lungs. Only your stomach should move, not your chest. The inhale should be a long, continuous breath, followed by a pause ...

Breath properly to reduce killing Stress and High Blood Pressure. Story at-a-glance. • One in 3 American adults have high blood pressure and nearly 1 in 4 reports feeling extremely stressed. These two conditions are closely related, and both can be addressed through breathing exercises. • Essential hypertension (high blood pressure with no known cause), may be prevented by implementing breathing exercises, provided you do it early enough. • The reason controlled, purposeful breathing is so calming is because it doesnt activate specific neurons in your brain that communicate with your arousal center. By Dr. Mercola. One in 3 American adults have high blood pressure (hypertension).1 An equally large segment of the adult population has prehypertension, meaning your pressure is higher than normal but not high enough to qualify as hypertension. Nearly 1 in 4 American adults also reports feeling extremely stressed,2,3 and these two conditions - stress and hypertension - tend to go hand-in-hand. ...

Maximal functional capacity was evaluated with an incremental exercise test, with expired gas analysis, on a treadmill (INBRAMED 10200, Porto Alegre, Brazil), using a ramp protocol, starting at a speed of 2.4 km·h−1and 2% slope, with 20-s increments of speed (0.1 to 0.2 km·h−1) and 60-s increments in slope (0.5% to 1.0%), to reach volitional fatigue at approximately 10 min. Twelve-lead electrocardiographic tracings were obtained every minute (Nihon Khoden Corp., Tokyo, Japan). Blood pressure was measured every 2 min with a standard cuff sphygmomanometer. Metabolic and ventilatory variables were measured during and after exercise by 20-s mean aliquots, by a computer-aided gas analyzer (Total Metabolic Analysis System, TEEM 100, Aero Sport, Ann Arbor, Michigan), previously validated (17). Peak oxygen uptake (V̇o2peak) was considered the highest value of V̇o2calculated in a period of 20 s of exercise. Maximal circulatory power was calculated as the product of V̇o2peak and peak systolic ...

The relaxation response puts the brakes on this heightened state of readiness and brings your body and mind back into a state of equilibrium. When stress throws your nervous system out of balance, relaxation techniques can bring it back into a balanced state by producing the relaxation response, a state of deep calmness that is the polar opposite of the stress response.. Very often I come across stress and anxiety related problems in my practice as Yoga Therapist. When trying to sleep, I am told, "I am disturbed by a bombardment of thoughts!" As dictated by my past experience with Pranayama, I usually suggest that the client try some very simple breathing exercises while lying in bed at night to help her relax and fall asleep. The practice is simple: a few minutes of deep, diaphragmatic breathing followed by a few minutes of consciously and gently extending each exhalation. The feedback for this very simple breathing manoeuvre has been overwhelmingly superlative!. Some of my clients/ students ...

The Buteyko Institute Method is a system of breathing retraining which promises immediate and sustained improvement for people with asthma and other breathing related disorders. It is based on the work of the Russian Professor KP Buteyko.
After getting up each day, make a point to repeat positive statements to yourself. Tell yourself how you want the day to go. As your day progresses, repeat your affirmations during stressful situations to keep your expectations positive.. Establish rapport with a trustworthy person. Use this person as someone that you can discuss the issues of anxiety with. Dont let your feelings get bottled up; talk to someone you can rely on. Keeping your feelings inside will make you feel more isolated and can worsen your situation.. To compensate for a tendency to breathe too fast during an anxious period, practice deep breathing exercises routinely so they are second nature when you need them. Anxiety causes hyperventilation in some, which is shallow breathing. Compensate by breathing from your diaphragm. When you take deep breaths, you force oxygen in to your system.

At my age, I cannot do vigorous exercise. I just walk about for about 10 minutes, swing my hands and do deep breathing exercise. I do this routine frequently throughout the day.. Mental exercise:. I watch the stock market during trading hours. Besides this, I write articles to criticise the corrupted BN Government. Since Pakatan Haprapan (PH) has won control of the government, I write more on share investment and useful pieces to benefit all my readers. This piece which I am writing is a good example.

4.) Now hold this pose for around two minutes. During this time, inhale deeply, hold your breath for a few seconds and exhale.. As this point all the trapped gas in your body should have come out.. 5.) Bring your body back to the relaxed position as in Step 1.. Repeat the process once again if you still feel that the trapped wind has not come out..

Some of us have depleted energy levels and a diminished sense of aliveness in their pelvic area and a fullness of energy in the heart region. Others feel their heart energy constricted while an having intense pelvic charge. This is particularly evident in early intimacy and bonding. Because of the fragmented energy disbursement in the body, sexual motivation usually has more to do with feelings like neediness, escape, and proving ones self-worth, than with pure pleasure and the normal desire for interconnectedness. For many people in recovery, pleasure can be realized only in highly charged scenarios - or is avoided because of associations with dangerous and/or self-destructive behaviors. Some of us are fearfully frozen; others become frustrated at a perceived inability to negotiate these complexities. Many repeat unfulfilling patterns again and again. Conscious, deep breathing exercises focused on the groin can help energy and awaken sexual aliveness. Begin by breathing all the way down to the ...

The bottom line?. The authors concluded, "Daily sessions of voluntary music-guided slow breathing significantly reduce 24-hour systolic arterial blood pressure, and psychological predictors of efficacy can be identified.". These findings support an earlier study in 2001. Researchers at The Chaim Sheba Medical Center, in Tel-Hashomer, Israel, reported significantly greater reductions in systolic blood pressure (8 mmHg) with musically-guided breathing exercises vs 3 mmHg in the control group - a 5 mmHg difference.. A PubMed search revealed no other studies combining music with slow-breathing. Although researchers at Seattle University, in Washington reported that guided relaxation may be more effective in lowering blood pressure than plain music.. As an aside, ACE inhibitor drugs cause an 8-point reduction in systolic pressure, with most of that change achieved with the lowest recommended dose.. 7/31/10 22:26 JR.

One lady came for the recent Reiki Workshop along with her mother. The students were doing the "So Hum" breathing exercise - where we have to breathe as per the chanting So Hum played from a CD. Its a powerful breathing technique.. After 5 minutes of breathing, she started weeping. I thought it will stop in few minutes, but her sobbing continued. So I asked her to stop the exercise. I enquired on what is happening to her. She replied that she has got a severe head ache which has become unbearable to her. Then she became very restless.. I gave her RESCUE REMEDY. After taking the remedy she was out of her sobbing.. She was quiet for about 5 minutes and then asked me, "Is this Reiki? You told us that our buried emotions are coming out and it is ok. But I am scared of this Reiki practice, since I am getting back my headache after 8 long years. I am really scared. I dont want my headache to recur again. Please dont get me into Reiki.

Running to catch the bus might be the only exercise some of us get during the day, but your leg muscles arent the only muscles getting an unexpected workout. Christina Spengler explains that our respiratory systems also have to rise to the challenge. But when an endurance athlete runs for the bus at the same speed, they hardly get out of breath, because they breathe less. Spengler also knew that the athletes peripheral chemosensory system, the system which constantly monitors the bodys levels of key metabolites as well as carbon dioxide and oxygen, is less sensitive than untrained peoples. Spengler wondered if it was the act of exercising the whole body that reset the chemoreceptors, or could heavy breathing alone reduce the chemoreceptors sensitivity? Working with her team, she tested how endurance athletes respiratory systems responded to six weeks of heavy breathing training, and was astonished to find that the breathing exercises alone had somehow reduced the athletes chemoreceptors ...
When you breathe through your mouth, you will experience less tissue oxygenation, which causes your heart rate and blood pressure to elevate in an attempt to make up for less efficient breathing.. An elevated heart rate or high blood pressure can cause fatigue and dizziness. In other words, breathing through your nose allows you to absorb more oxygen with less physical exertion.. Furthermore, children who breathe through their mouths may develop with an altered facial structure that causes their face to be longer, which in turn contributes to impaired breathing patterns.. Breathing through your mouth will make it more likely that you hyperventilate or experience allergens.. It also causes you to expel too much carbon dioxide from your body, which can cause fluctuations in your bloods pH level and limit the hemoglobin from releasing oxygen into our cells. This is called the Bohr effect, which can ultimately lead to hypoxia or low blood oxygen levels that restrict blood flow to vital ...
