Therapeutic exercises aimed to deepen inspiration or expiration or even to alter the rate and rhythm of respiration.
Care of patients with deficiencies and abnormalities associated with the cardiopulmonary system. It includes the therapeutic use of medical gases and their administrative apparatus, environmental control systems, humidification, aerosols, ventilatory support, bronchopulmonary drainage and exercise, respiratory rehabilitation, assistance with cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and maintenance of natural, artificial, and mechanical airways.
A major orthodox system of Hindu philosophy based on Sankhya (metaphysical dualism) but differing from it in being theistic and characterized by the teaching of raja-yoga as a practical method of liberating the self. It includes a system of exercises for attaining bodily or mental control and well-being with liberation of the self and union with the universal spirit. (From Webster, 3d ed)
Measurement of volume of air inhaled or exhaled by the lung.
These include the muscles of the DIAPHRAGM and the INTERCOSTAL MUSCLES.
That portion of the body that lies between the THORAX and the PELVIS.
The physical or mechanical action of the LUNGS; DIAPHRAGM; RIBS; and CHEST WALL during respiration. It includes airflow, lung volume, neural and reflex controls, mechanoreceptors, breathing patterns, etc.
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.
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.
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)
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.
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).
The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.
Abnormal breathing through the mouth, usually associated with obstructive disorders of the nasal passages.
Expenditure of energy during PHYSICAL ACTIVITY. Intensity of exertion may be measured by rate of OXYGEN CONSUMPTION; HEAT produced, or HEART RATE. Perceived exertion, a psychological measure of exertion, is included.
The volume of air contained in the lungs at the end of a maximal inspiration. It is the equivalent to each of the following sums: VITAL CAPACITY plus RESIDUAL VOLUME; INSPIRATORY CAPACITY plus FUNCTIONAL RESIDUAL CAPACITY; TIDAL VOLUME plus INSPIRATORY RESERVE VOLUME plus functional residual capacity; or tidal volume plus inspiratory reserve volume plus EXPIRATORY RESERVE VOLUME plus residual volume.

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. ...

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 ...

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 ...
Have you ever tried starting that rusty old bike that you dont even remember being used? It doesnt give a good mileage anymore, does it? Only if it is serviced and used regularly, will the bike perform well. Similarly, if our body muscles lack the required amount of activity, they may start dysfunctioning. Health is Wealth is a well-known English proverb. Truly, what wealth could be greater than keeping a healthy mind and body? In a bid to remain physically and mentally healthy, regular physical exercise and dieting have become an integral part of peoples lives.

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. ...

The Buteyko breathing technique can improve symptoms and reduce bronchodilator use but does not appear to change bronchial responsiveness or lung function in patients with asthma. No benefit was shown for the Pink City Lung Exerciser.
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 ...

Most patients are readily liberated from mechanical ventilation (MV) support, however, 10% - 15% of patients experience failure to wean (FTW). FTW patients account for approximately 40% of all MV days and have significantly worse clinical outcomes. MV induced inspiratory muscle weakness has been implicated as a contributor to FTW and recent work has documented inspiratory muscle weakness in humans supported with MV. We conducted a single center, single-blind, randomized controlled trial to test whether inspiratory muscle strength training (IMST) would improve weaning outcome in FTW patients. Of 129 patients evaluated for participation, 69 were enrolled and studied. 35 subjects were randomly assigned to the IMST condition and 34 to the SHAM treatment. IMST was performed with a threshold inspiratory device, set at the highest pressure tolerated and progressed daily. SHAM training provided a constant, low inspiratory pressure load. Subjects completed 4 sets of 6-10 training breaths, 5 days per week.
Most inspiratory muscle training (IMT) interventions in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) have been implemented as fully supervised daily training for 30 minutes with controlled training loads using mechanical threshold loading (MTL) devices. Recently, an electronic tapered flow resistive loading (TFRL) device was introduced that has a different loading profile and stores training data during IMT sessions. The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy of a brief, largely unsupervised IMT protocol conducted using either traditional MTL or TFRL on inspiratory muscle function in patients with COPD. Twenty patients with inspiratory muscle weakness who were clinically stable and participating in a pulmonary rehabilitation program were randomly allocated to perform 8 weeks of either MTL IMT or TFRL IMT. Participants performed 2 daily home-based IMT sessions of 30 breaths (3-5 minutes per session) at the highest tolerable intensity, supported by twice-weekly supervised ...
Many alternative and complementary therapeutic methods have been used by patients with Parkinsons disease (PD). Researchers in Germany examined the immediate and continuous effects of Qigong on motor and nonmotor symptoms of PD (Schmitz-Hubsch et al., 2006). A total of 56 patients with different levels of PD disease severity were involved in the study.. The researchers compared the Qigong training group and a control group about the progression of motor symptoms evaluated using Unified Parkinsons Disease Rating Scale motor part (Schmitz-Hubsch et al., 2006). The Qigong group had the trainings of 90-minute each week for 2 months, followed by a 2 months break, then a second training for 2 months.. The study found that at the time point of 3 and 6 months, more patients showed improvements in the Qigong group than in the control group (Schmitz-Hubsch et al., 2006). In addition, the rates of several nonmotor symptoms reduced in the Qigong group only.. This study indicates that Qigong exercise may ...
Purpose: It has been suggested that patients with inspiratory muscle weakness could benefit from specific inspiratory muscle training (IMT). We aimed to examine the frequency of patients with inspiratory muscle weakness in a Danish hospital-based outpatient pulmonary rehabilitation program, and to evaluate the association between inspiratory muscle strength and peripheral muscle strength and walking capacity. Methods: Maximal Inspiratory Pressure (MIP) was assessed in 97 patients with COPD (39 men, 58 women, mean age years 70 ± 9, forced expiratory volume in 1 s ((FEV1) = 35 ± 10% pred.). The impact of MIP on knee-extension strength, walking distance, and symptom burden was evaluated using multiple linear regression analyses. Results: The MIP of the patients with COPD was 63 (95% CI 59; 67) cmH2O and it was significantly reduced compared to gender and age-matched reference values 76 (95% CI 73; 79) cmH2O (p , 0.001). Seven patients (7.2%) were under the lower limit of normal. MIP was ...

Diaphragmatic breathing is relaxing and therapeutic, reduces stress, and is a fundamental procedure of Pranayama Yoga, Zen, transcendental meditation and other meditation practices. Analysis of oxidative stress levels in people who meditate indicated
Patanjali, foremost exponent of Yoga, described pranayama as the gradual unforced cessation of breathing. Pranayama is derived from two Sanskrit words-prana (life) or yama (control). Pranayam or control of prana or life force yields heart beat pulse and mind control. Yoga combines scientific technique of right behavior (Yama-Niyama), proper posture (asana), life force control (pranayama), interiorisation of the mind (pratyahara), concentration (dhyan), developing intuition (dharna) and Samadhi (ultimate realization). Anuloma Viloma pranayama starts with closing the right nostril with the thumb of the right hand, inhaling through the left nostril, holding the breath, followed by exhalation through right nostril while closing the left nostril with the index finger of right hand and then reversing the process. This forms one round of Anuloma Viloma pranayama or Nadishuddi pranayama. Pulse rate and reaction times were recorded before and after twelve cycles of alternate nostril breathing. The pulse ...

Life is beautiful-and, often times, a little crazy. Thats why, in the midst of it all, it is crucial we remember to breathe (literally!). Amid the chaos, and sometimes unbeknownst to us, we will hold our breath in times of excitement, stress, anxiety, giddiness, or surprise. Any Board Certified Massage Therapist (BCTMB) will surely tell you how important breathing is to your overall health, but have you ever stopped to think about why it is so important?
Konstantin Pavlovich Buteyko was born on the 27th January 1923, into the small farming community of Ivanitsa (about 150km from Kiev). Inheriting his fathers enthusiasm for machines, Konstantin was enrolled into the Kiev Polytechnic Institute until his studies were interrupted by World War II when Buteyko joined his countrys armed forces. After his experiences during the War, Buteyko felt compelled to study what he called the most complicated piece of machinery of all - the human organism.. In 1946, he enrolled into the First Medical Institute in Moscow. During his third year he started working in the clinical therapy group under the departmental head, academician Evgeniy Mikhailovitch Tareiev.. During this third year at the Institute, Buteyko was given a practical assignment which involved monitoring diseased patients breathing. He spent hundreds of hours sitting by patients bedsides, recording their breathing patterns prior to death. He noticed a considerable and uniformed deepening in ...
Fresh air may help when you feel that morning sickness. Usually, people tend to close the window and just lay there when they are ill.

Qigong is Tai Chi minus the Chuan.. Since the beginning of civilization, people have sought to relieve pain and suffering, to heal sickness, and to prolong life. In China, ancient exercises evolved with that express purpose and were called Daoyin. The more common term of today is Qigong.. Qigong in its earliest forms is as old as Chinese culture, and probably began even before the advent of writing. Qigong is a primary component, and sister practice of Tai Chi Chuan.. The many systems of Qigong are as different as one could imagine, from forms that train monks to repel spears driven into their throats or pull one-ton rocks with their testicles, to forms that cure chronic diseases such as cancer and arthritis. There are many more qigong forms and systems than the far fewer systems of Tai Chi, which has only five main branches. Qigong has had thousands of years of development, while it is estimated that Tai Chi has had a mere six to eight hundred.. Chinese Qigong [Dao Yin] has been ...
Its all right to be sad and scared, but its so important to laugh. Having a sense of humor, even if its dark humor, will be helpful. Read joke books or see a slapstick movie.

Eyelid Twitching: This is an eye condition associated with an increase in stress levels. The symptoms that are associated with this eye condition include involuntary spasms of the eyelids that happen frequently. Sometimes they are intermittent and other symptoms of eyelid twitching are just temporary and eventually stop. In terms of severe cases, whereby eyelid twitching is severe, the traditionally recommended treatment is Botox injections under the eyelid. However, these can cause unpleasant side effects. Also, some eye doctors recommend antihistamine eye drops, but this can cause dry eye. From a nutritional point of view, natural eye care specialists recommend significantly limiting your caffeine consumption as this can trigger this condition. You may also want to abstain from alcohol consumption as well. A Magnesium deficiency is also a possible cause for this condition. A natural way to solve this problem is to practice meditation or deep breathing exercises for 15 minutes each day ...

If you have allergies, being exposed to what you are allergic to may make your eczema worse. Eczema is not an allergy, but some common allergens that could trigger eczema are dairy products, eggs, wheat and tomatoes. Other things that could make your eczema flare up are pet dander, pollen, dust and mold. Avoid stress. Stress can increase the intensity of eczema flare-ups.

Why Pranayama (or) Yogic Breathing. Effects Of Improper Breathing; - Very few people breathe correctly. Some use only the upper part of their lungs; others breathe with only the diaphragm (lower part) leaving the upper structures of the lungs inactive and partially collapsed. In those parts of the lung that are not used, slimy secretions accumulate and the tissues become devitalized. Thus a luxurious soil is prepared for the tubercle bacillus, pneumococcus and other scavenger germs. This habit of shallow breathing accounts in a good measure for the fact that one third of all deaths result from diseases of the lungs. For one individual perishing from food starvation, thousands are dying from oxygen starvation.. Effective Breathing;- Breathing problems can be corrected by yoga through the practice of Pranayama. Pranayama has various techniques that are designed for the maximum capacity utilization of the lungs - something that most of us do not do. Yoga and pranayama also help in regulating the ...

Baroreflex sensitivity can be enhanced significantly by slow breathing, both in health and in the presence of CHF. This seems to occur through a relative increase in vagal activity and a reduction in sympathetic activity, as could be argued by the small reduction in heart rate observed during slow breathing and by the reduction in both systolic and diastolic blood pressures. The increase in tidal volume, which compensates for the reduced breathing rate in order to maintain minute ventilation,6,8 could be responsible for these autonomic changes through a reduction in sympathetic activity8 or via the Hering-Breuer reflex. In fact, sympathetic activity was found to increase with faster breathing rates and to decrease with higher tidal volumes in CHF.8,10 The increase in baroreflex sensitivity depended on the slow breathing rate and not on the regularization obtained by controlling the breathing, inasmuch as this effect was not evident when breathing was controlled at a frequency (15 breaths/min) ...

Parents can tell you a thing or two about it: the moon is full and the youngsters become exhausting and often have a bad sleep. Here, you only can prepare to be patient, take a deep breath and hope that this phase is passing by quickly.. Speaking of taking a deep breath: Breathing techniques are well-known and proven relaxation methods that generally facilitate falling asleep. Practice breathing techniques already before falling asleep difficulties arise. It is important that the intervals of exhaling are longer than the intervals of inhaling. Proper breathing leads to relaxation and significantly eases falling asleep, not only in nights of full moon.. A pleasant scent in the bedroom not only simplifies and supports inclusion and processing of learned things it also significantly eases relaxation. For example, balm and lavender are proven fragrances that support relaxation. Be sure that the scent is very soft when infants stay in the room..
