Factors influencing the deposition of inhaled particles. (1/5161)

Because the initial deposition pattern of inhaled particles of various toxic agents determines their future clearance and insult to tissue, respiratory tract deposition is important in assessing the potential toxicity of inhaled aerosols. Factors influencing the deposition of inhaled particles can be classified into three main areas: (1) the physics of aerosols, (2) the anatomy of the respiratory tract and (3) the airflow patterns in the lung airways. In the physics of aerosols, the forces acting on a particle and its physical and chemical properties, such as particle size or size distribution, density, shape, hygroscopic or hydrophobic character, and chemical reactions of the particle will affect the deposition. With respect to the anatomy of the respiratory tract, important parameters are the diameters, the lengths, and the branching angles of airway segments, which determine the deposition. Physiological factors include airflow and breathing patterns, which influence particle deposition. Various lung models used in predicting particle deposition are reviewed and discussed. The air-way structures of various animal species are compared, showing the unique structure of the human lung compared to the animal species under study. Regional deposition data in man and dog are reviewed. Recent deposition data for small rodents are presented, showing regional difference in deposition with the right apical lobe having the highest relative deposition.  (+info)

Neural changes after operant conditioning of the aerial respiratory behavior in Lymnaea stagnalis. (2/5161)

In this study, we demonstrate neural changes that occurred during operant conditioning of the aerial respiratory behavior of Lymnaea stagnalis. Aerial respiration in Lymnaea occurs at the water interface and is achieved by opening and closing movements of its respiratory orifice, the pneumostome. This behavior is controlled by a central pattern generator (CPG), the neurons of which, as well as the motoneurons innervating the pneumostome, have previously been identified and their synaptic connections well characterized. The respiratory behavior was operantly conditioned by applying a mechanical stimulus to the open pneumostome whenever the animal attempted to breathe. This negative reinforcement to the open pneumostome resulted in its immediate closure and a significant reduction in the overall respiratory activity. Electrophysiological recordings from the isolated CNSs after operant conditioning showed that the spontaneous patterned respiratory activity of the CPG neurons was significantly reduced. This included reduced spontaneous activity of the CPG interneuron involved in pneumostome opening (input 3 interneuron) and a reduced frequency of spontaneous tonic activity of the CPG interneuron [right pedal dorsal 1 (RPeD1)]. The ability to trigger the patterned respiratory activity by electrical stimulation of RPeD1 was also significantly reduced after operant conditioning. This study therefore demonstrates significant changes within a CPG that are associated with changes in a rhythmic homeostatic behavior after operant conditioning.  (+info)

Modeling breathing-zone concentrations of airborne contaminants generated during compressed air spray painting. (3/5161)

This paper presents a mathematical model to predict breathing-zone concentrations of airborne contaminants generated during compressed air spray painting in cross-flow ventilated booths. The model focuses on characterizing the generation and transport of overspray mist. It extends previous work on conventional spray guns to include exposures generated by HVLP guns. Dimensional analysis and scale model wind-tunnel studies are employed using non-volatile oils, instead of paint, to produce empirical equations for estimating exposure to total mass. Results indicate that a dimensionless breathing zone concentration is a nonlinear function of the ratio of momentum flux of air from the spray gun to the momentum flux of air passing through the projected area of the worker's body. The orientation of the spraying operation within the booth is also very significant. The exposure model requires an estimate of the contaminant generation rate, which is approximated by a simple impactor model. The results represent an initial step in the construction of more realistic models capable of predicting exposure as a mathematical function of the governing parameters.  (+info)

The respiratory responses of Carcinus maenas to declining oxygen tension. (4/5161)

The degree of respiratory independence shown by Carcinus under conditions of declining oxygen tension is dependent on the animal's level of activity. Inactive Carcinus are capable of maintaining respiratory independence down to a Po2 of 60-80 mmHg. This is achieved primarily by an increase in ventilation volume such that the amount of oxygen made available at the respiratory surfaces remains constant over a wide range of oxygen tension. The Po2 at which this can no longer be maintained corresponds closely to the Po2 at which respiratory independence is lost. Under normoxic conditions the Po2 of the post- and prebranchial blood was 97 and 18 mmHg respectively. At the high oxygen tensions prevailing in the postbranchial blood the respiratory pigment is fully saturated. Under conditions of declining oxygen tension the heart rate remains more or less constant until the Po2 reaches 60-80 mmHg, the onset of bradycardia coinciding with the loss of saturation of the haemocyanin. Although cardiac output falls during hypoxia, the capacity rate ratio remains approximately constant, which enables the effectiveness of oxygen uptake by the blood to remain at a high level.  (+info)

Importance of air and water breathing in relation to size of the African lungfish Protopterus amphibius Peters. (5/5161)

1. Oxygen uptakes from air and water have been measured in relation to weight of the African lungfish Protopterus amphibius Peters. 2. Combined O2 uptake from air and water ranged from 60 ml O2 kg-1 h-1 STPD, in a 3-7 g specimen, to 30 ml O2kg-1 h-1, in a 255 g specimen. 3. While the combined O2 uptake changed by a factor of 2, within the weight range under study, the aquatic O2 uptake changed 8-fold within the same range. The smaller fish satisfy 70% of their O2 requirement by aquatic breathing compared to 10-15% in the grown specimens. 4. The pattern of bimodal breathing in P. amphibius is discussed in relation to the natural habitat of the species.  (+info)

Glucose kinetics during prolonged exercise in highly trained human subjects: effect of glucose ingestion. (6/5161)

1. The objectives of this study were (1) to investigate whether glucose ingestion during prolonged exercise reduces whole body muscle glycogen oxidation, (2) to determine the extent to which glucose disappearing from the plasma is oxidized during exercise with and without carbohydrate ingestion and (3) to obtain an estimate of gluconeogenesis. 2. After an overnight fast, six well-trained cyclists exercised on three occasions for 120 min on a bicycle ergometer at 50 % maximum velocity of O2 uptake and ingested either water (Fast), or a 4 % glucose solution (Lo-Glu) or a 22 % glucose solution (Hi-Glu) during exercise. 3. Dual tracer infusion of [U-13C]-glucose and [6,6-2H2]-glucose was given to measure the rate of appearance (Ra) of glucose, muscle glycogen oxidation, glucose carbon recycling, metabolic clearance rate (MCR) and non-oxidative disposal of glucose. 4. Glucose ingestion markedly increased total Ra especially with Hi-Glu. After 120 min Ra and rate of disappearance (Rd) of glucose were 51-52 micromol kg-1 min-1 during Fast, 73-74 micromol kg-1 min-1 during Lo-Glu and 117-119 micromol kg-1 min-1 during Hi-Glu. The percentage of Rd oxidized was between 96 and 100 % in all trials. 5. Glycogen oxidation during exercise was not reduced by glucose ingestion. The vast majority of glucose disappearing from the plasma is oxidized and MCR increased markedly with glucose ingestion. Glucose carbon recycling was minimal suggesting that gluconeogenesis in these conditions is negligible.  (+info)

Evaluation of passive smoking by measuring urinary trans, trans-muconic acid and exhaled carbon monoxide levels. (7/5161)

No method has yet been established to evaluate the exposure to tobacco smoke in passive smoking (PS). We therefore conducted a study on the possibility that the levels of urinary trans, trans-muconic acid (MA) and the exhaled carbon monoxide (CO) could be indices of the passive exposure to tobacco smoke. The moderate correlation was observed between urinary MA levels and the number of consumed cigarettes per day in smokers. The mean urinary MA level of the PS (+) group was significantly higher than that with the PS (-) group. Among the PS (+) group, the mean MA level in the urine obtained in the afternoon was higher than that obtained in the morning. A high correlation was observed between the exhaled CO levels and the number of consumed cigarettes per day in smokers. Like the urinary MA level, the mean exhaled CO level in the PS (+) group, too, gave a significantly higher level than in the PS (-) group. Because the biological half life of MA (7.5 +/- 0.85 h) was longer than that of CO (3.0 +/- 0.36 h), the measurement of urinary MA level is recommended for evaluating the exposure of passive smoking. The measurement of exhaled CO levels is useful only for chain smokers and nonsmokers with PS just before measurement.  (+info)

Depression of peripheral chemosensitivity by a dopaminergic mechanism in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome. (8/5161)

In the present study, respiratory drives to chemical stimuli and peripheral chemosensitivity were evaluated in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea (OSAS). The effects of oral administration of domperidone, a selective dopamine D2-receptor antagonist, were also examined, to study the respiratory effects of endogenous dopamine on peripheral chemoreceptors. Sixteen patients with OSAS and nine normal control subjects were studied. Respiratory responses to hypercapnia and hypoxia were measured using the rebreathing method and isocapnic progressive hypoxia method, respectively. The hypoxic withdrawal test, which measures the decrease in ventilation caused by two breaths of 100% O2 under mild hypercapnic hypoxic conditions (end-tidal oxygen and carbon dioxide tensions approximately 8.0 kPa and 5.3-6.7 kPa, respectively), was used to evaluate peripheral chemosensitivity. In the patients with OSAS, ventilatory responses to hypercapnia and hypoxia were significantly decreased compared with those of control subjects. Hypoxic withdrawal tests showed that peripheral chemosensitivity was significantly lower in patients with OSAS than in normal subjects. Hypercapnic ventilatory response and peripheral chemosensitivity were enhanced by administration of domperidone in the patients with OSAS, although no changes in either of these were observed in the control subjects. The hypoxic ventilatory response and peripheral chemosensitivity in the patients with OSAS were each significantly correlated with severity of hypoxia during sleep. These findings suggest that peripheral chemosensitivity in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome may be decreased as a result of abnormality in dopaminergic mechanisms and that the reduced chemosensitivity observed in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome may affect the severity of hypoxia during sleep.  (+info)

A system for controlling patient sedation and spontaneous breathing intensity includes a ventilator system that delivers ventilation to the patient. The system further includes a spontaneous breathing control module configured to determine a first spontaneous breathing intensity at a first sedative status of the patient, and a second spontaneous breathing intensity at a second sedative status of the patient. A sedation/breathing relationship is then defined between spontaneous breathing intensity and sedative status for the patient based on the first and second sedative statuses and the first and second spontaneous breathing intensities. The spontaneous breathing control module then receives a desired spontaneous breathing intensity for the patient and determines a desired sedative status that achieves that desired spontaneous breathing intensity based on the sedation/breathing relationship.

1. Low level exercise is frequently used to assess cardiac and pulmonary function. This study examines the differences in both metabolic and respiratory patterns between the sitting and supine position.. 2. Six normal male subjects were studied in both positions during four levels of exercise (12.5, 25, 37.5 and 50 W). Oxygen consumption (Vo2), carbon dioxide production (Vco2) and minute ventilation (Ve2) were greater when sitting as were the ventilatory equivalents to O2 (Ve2/ Vo2) and CO2 (Ve2/ Vco2).. 3. Respiration was compared at equivalent workloads; the greater minute ventilation observed during sitting was due to greater tidal volumes (Vt) and mean inspiratory flows (Vt/Vi,). Expiratory time (Te) was longer and inspiratory duration shorter under most conditions when sitting.. 4. When breathing patterns were compared at similar degrees of minute ventilation, Vt, Te and Vt/Ti were greater when sitting, while respiratory frequency (fr) was slower. ...

This study will evaluate the effectiveness of a flexible belt device in guiding patient breathing during computed tomography (CT)-guided needle biopsy. When patients undergo CT scanning to help guide the physician during a tissue biopsy, they are usually asked to hold their breath while the scan is taken of certain parts of the body. When the first scan is completed, the patients are allowed to breathe, and are then asked to hold their breath again while the needle is advanced towards the tissue to be biopsied. Since body organs and tissues move with breathing, this study will try to stop the patients breathing at the same place in the breathing cycle to ensure that the biopsy target stays still and in the same place. This study will see if the flexible belt, used with a computer screen that charts the patients breathing, will improve the patients ability to stop breathing at the same place in the breathing cycle before and during the biopsy.. Patients 18 years of age and older who have a ...
The SleepCube BiLevel ST device is designed to enhance the breathing of patients with spontaneous respiration. Unlike ventilators, it will not completely take over the breathing for the patient, but instead helps a patient who has chronic respiratory failure, difficulty breathing, or obstructive sleep apnoea; it is administered via a mask and is not invasive.. The device automatically synchronises with the patients respiratory pattern, cycling between IPAP and EPAP (breathe in and breathe out).. The BiLevel ST can also be set to a timed mode, where the clinician sets the BPM (breaths per minute) and %IPAP; or it can be set to a combination of Spontaneous and Timed operation, where the unit cycles in response to the patients breathing rate, but switches to the timed operation if the patient fails to take a breath within the timed interval.. ...
In emission tomography, the process of image reconstruction has evolved since the utilization of the filtered back projection algorithm (FBP). Nowadays, iterative techniques incorporating statistical knowledge of the photon emission process has produced much interest among researchers, not only for the improvements achieved in image quality, but also by the possibility of incorporate corrections factors, like scattering, attenuation, etc. One of the problems that has not been discussed in depth is the incorporation of correction methodologies due to patient breathing, which produces blur regions in lungs and cardiac images. Solutions like respiratory gating, that synchronize the breathing cycle of the patient and the data acquisition process, or correlated dynamic PET techniques that use external radioactive markers and list mode data, have been tested with improvements over the spatial activity distribution in lungs lesions, but with the disadvantages of requiring extra hardware or more expensive

Philips Respironics patent US7168429B2 describes variable breathing as a breathing control layer in the auto CPAP, that monitors the flow signal to determine whether the patient is experiencing erratic breathing, and causes the pressure generating system to adjust the pressure of the flow of breathing gas responsive to detection of erratic breathing. The variable breathing algorithm seeks to develop a peak inspiratory flow trend on a 4 minute moving average, and measure the deviation above or below that trend. The system is designed to identify variable breathing and to turn over control of the pressure support system, from the auto CPAP controller to the Variable Breathing controller. Without figures, we dont know what that controller response is, but it seems if VB is detected while the pressure is steady, the VB controller will maintain that pressure, but if pressure was increasing before VB controller took control, the pressure is reduced up to 2-cm. Similarly if pressure was decreasing ...
In this paper, we describe a computer program (RESP-24) specifically devised to assess the prevalence and characteristics of breathing disorders in ambulant chronic heart failure patients during the overall 24 h period. The system works on a single channel respiratory signal (RS) recorded through a Holter-like portable device. In the pre-processing stage RESP-24 removes noise, baseline drift and motion artefacts from the RS using a non-linear filter, enhances respiratory frequency components through high-pass filtering and derives an instantaneous tidal volume (ITV) signal. The core processing is devoted to the identification and classification of the breathing pattern into periodic breathing (PB), normal breathing or non-classifiable breathing using a 60 s segmentation, and to the identification and estimation of apnea and hypopnea events. Sustained episodes of PB are detected by cross analysis of both the spectral content and time behavior of the ITV signal. User-friendly interactive ...

The goal of radiation therapy is to give as much dose as possible to the exact target location and minimizing any dose to a normal tissue. Advances of Cyber-physical control systems allow planning and provide very accurate treatments. However, the current technology does not sufficiently compensate a respiratory movement that is especially important in case of lung (area) cancer. In this paper we present a model of radiation treatment system developed to analyze a system that compensates respiratory motion.

FEV1 is largely used to evaluate the bronchodilators response in COPD patients, but under conditions that do not reflect the usual ventilatory constraints. In humans, tidal spontaneous ventilation (VE) exhibits breath-by-breath variability and features mathematical complexity that is compatible with a chaotic structure. Breath-by-breath variability and nonlinear complexity have already been shown to be reliable mathematical biomarkers to describe the ventilatory flow in COPD patients during resting spontaneous breathing (Respir Physiol Neurobiol 2013; 185: 477-80). The current work aims at evaluating the resting ventilatory flow by applying a new technique called anharmonic morphological analysis of the respiratory signals (AMARS) which produces objective, accurate and specific measures of the shape of the ventilatory flow.. 24 stable COPD patients were studied (16 males; 40-86 years old; FEV1 = 71±21% pred). Resting VE was recorded for 5-10 minutes before and after a short-acting inhaled ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Brain-derived neurotrophic factor is required for normal development of the central respiratory rhythm in mice. AU - Balkowiec, Agnieszka. AU - Katz, David M.. PY - 1998/7/15. Y1 - 1998/7/15. N2 - 1. Molecular mechanisms underlying maturation of the central respiratory rhythm are largely unknown. Previously, we found that brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is required for expression of normal breathing behaviour in newborn mice, raising the possibility that maturation of central respiratory output is dependent on BDNF. 2. Respiratory activity was recorded in vitro from cervical ventral roots (C1 or C4) using the isolated brainstem-spinal cord preparation from postnatal day (P) 0.5-2.0 and P4.5 wild-type mice and mice lacking functional bdnf alleles. 3. Loss of one or both bdnf alleles resulted in an approximately 50% depression of central respiratory frequency compared with wild-type controls. In addition, respiratory cycle length variability was 214% higher in bdnf null ...
PURPOSE: The short-term displacement and reproducibility of the breast or chest wall, and the internal mammary (IM), infraclavicular (ICV), and supraclavicular (SCV) nodal regions have been assessed as a function of breath-hold state using an active breathing control (ABC) device for patients receiving loco-regional breast radiation therapy. METHODS AND MATERIALS: Ten patients underwent computed tomographic scanning using an ABC device at breath-hold states of end-exhale and 20%, 40%, 60%, and 80% of vital capacity (VC). Patients underwent scanning before treatment and at one third and two thirds of the way through treatment. A regional registration was performed for each target using a rigid-body transformation with mutual information as a metric. RESULTS: Between exhale and 40% of VC, the mean displacement was 0.27/0.34, 0.24/0.31, 0.22/0.19, and 0.13/0.19 cm anterior/superior for the breast or chest wall, and IM, ICV, and SCV nodes, respectively. At 80% of VC, the mean displacement from ...
These experiments justify the following general conclusions.. By the intravenous injection of M/4 magnesium sulphate into dogs at a certain rate, a stage can be reached where the abdominal walls are completely relaxed and when section of the abdomen and stimulation of sensitive parts of the parietal peritoneum do not produce pain or elicit any reaction of the animal. At the same time spontaneous respiration may still be maintained within normal limits and the lid reflex be fair or even normal. In this stage intratracheal intubation for artificial respiration can be easily accomplished. This stage may be attained in 12 to 14 minutes when the rate of injection is about 3 cc. per minute. When this stage is once attained the rate of injection should gradually be reduced, otherwise, sooner or later, spontaneous respiration will be abolished, and by a further maintenance of the rate of injection all the skeletal muscles may become paralyzed.. When the injection of magnesium is continued for a longer ...
1. The pattern of breathing in 12 patients with severe irreversible airflow obstruction has been studied during ventilatory stimulation by rebreathing CO2. Mean maximum tidal volume response was only 1.23 +/- 0.30 litres (mean +/- SD); this represented 65% of mean measured vital capacity and 82% of mean measured inspiratory capacity. During the course of rebreathing mean total breath duration was reduced from 3.48 +/- 0.93 to 2.44 +/- 0.48 s. 2. End-expiratory thoracic gas volume (FRC) was elevated at rest in all subjects and increased significantly by a further 0.50 +/- 1.90 litres during ventilatory stimulation in 10 of the 12 subjects. The maximum increase in FRC was proportional to the degree of airflow obstruction afforded by the airways in each subject. 3. It is suggested that the increase in FRC during ventilatory stimulation is responsible for the diminished tidal volume response and is an important determinant of breathing pattern and symptomatology in patients with airflow obstruction.

The consumption of energy in prematures and newborns is primarily used to supply the heart and maintain body temperature. For newborns, the ratio of skin area to volume is lower than older children, thus it takes more oxygen to burn calories to maintain heat. Most moms recognize this, and keep newborns covered, especially from breezes. The heart pumping energy is a significant proportional user of energy in the newborn, requiring proportionally more oxygen than an older child. Finally, considering these higher uses of oxygen, and the limited lung capacity, the breathing rate has to increase in order to move more oxygen into the bloodstream per minute. Curiously, the breathing rate of prematures often exceeds 50 breaths per minute, but if you calculate the minute volume (the volume of air moved into the baby per minute), it is the same as a normal term infant ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Control of breathing during cortical substitution of the spontaneous automatic respiratory rhythm. AU - Haouzi, Philippe. AU - Chenuel, Bruno. AU - Whipp, Brian J.. PY - 2007/11/15. Y1 - 2007/11/15. N2 - This study addresses the following question: does the ventilatory control system adjust total ventilation in accord with the regulatory demands of the physiological dead space ventilation (over(V, ̇)D) when the breathing frequency changes, and if so, how? A simple proportionality between the amplitude of the respiratory motor output (VT) and the respiratory period (TTOT) during such changes will not provide for regulation of arterial (PaC O2); the relationship requires a positive intercept of magnitude VD, i.e. VT = over(V, ̇)A TTOT + VD. We therefore determined the relationship between VT and TTOT when breathing frequency was changed in a ramp-like manner (from 6 to 20 cycles/min), in an imperceptible manner, during a paced-breathing protocol in which the subjects voluntarily ...

A 6-month-old previously healthy boy presents to the local emergency department with a 1-week history of progressive lethargy, irritability, and anorexia. Two days before presentation he developed an unusual breathing pattern and worsening respiratory distress, and he had a fever of 101.3°F (38.5°C). There was no rhinorrhea, coryza, cough, vomiting, or diarrhea.. He appears unwell, with respiratory distress, tachypnea, and grunting. His blood pressure is 80/45 mm Hg, heart rate is 200 beats/min, respiratory rate is 60 breaths/min, and oxygen saturation is 77% in room air. He is afebrile. There is significantly decreased air entry bilaterally, most impressively over the right lung field. His neurologic examination reveals a mild right-sided ptosis. Although he moves both arms normally, there is a noticeable paucity of movements in his lower limbs, with decreased tone in both legs. The remainder of his examination findings are normal.. On further questioning the parents clarify that for the past ...

There are indeed numerous deaths due to synergistic combinations of sedatives and opioids. This is because sedatives obtund the primary form of respiratory drive, and opioids obtund the secondary form of respiratory drive. If both forms of respiratory drive are blocked, then respiratory drive is abolished altogether, which of course is lethal. The primary form of respiratory drive is affected by pH receptors in brain ventricles, and it determines respiratory rate and depth in conscious individuals. This form of respiratory drive is resistant to hyperventilation and depletion of CO2 tissue reserves so long as consciousnss remains present. During sleep and anesthesia, when consciousness is obtunded, the primary respiratory drive is abolished, and breathing becomes totally dependent on the secondary form of respiratory drive. The secondary form of respiratory drive is primarily determined by respiratory chemoreceptors located in extravascular tissues. These are stimulated directly by hypercarbia, ...

Data concerning pulmonary ventilation and respiratory response to elevation in alveolar pCO2 obtained from patients and subjects to whom Dromoran hydrobromide, levo-Dromoran tartrate, levallorphan tantrate or combinations of these drugs were administered intramuscularly have been presented.. In no instance was the mixture of levallorphan with levo-Dromoran in a dosage relationship of 1:1 or 1:10 capable of preventing the respiratory depression normally produced by levo-Dromoran. It is concluded that the mixture of opiates and opiate antagonists for the purpose of preserving analgesia and preventing respiratory depression is not worthwhile.. Observations are presented indicating that the measurement of respiratory rate, tidal volume, and minute volume alone may not reveal respiratory depression from narcotics. Inclusion of alveolar or arterial pCO2 values and of the respiratory response to increased concentrations of inspired carbon dioxide permit a more objective evaluation.. ...
One limitation of this study is the small number of patients. Due to the low incidence of target disease, our database included only 20 patients despite long periods. As a result, our study have no significant clip shift according to detailed analysis such as type of operation and absolute position of clip. Another shortcoming of this work was existence of conglomerate clips. Individual clip was hard to distinguish from conglomerated clips. The nearest clip from treatment center was selected in conglomerated clips. Third, the interval between imaging and treatment have the potential of respiratory change. Respiratory change have possibility of unpredictable error. Fourth, modification was aligned to clip shifts before each treatment fraction. However, one patients distal clips were shifted in the opposite direction. These clip displacement reflect postoperative change of intra-abdominal organ position as well as bowel gas change. Therefore, in this case, modification was aligned to proximal ...

It is important to avoid rapid, shallow breathing. A number of endurance athletes fall into the trap of breathing with each step or pedal stroke. This is an antiquated technique based on the belief that breathing on each footfall was important to maintain your tempo and rhythm.. The problem with this approach is that as your pace increases or you reach the upper limits of your aerobic threshold, this can actually decrease performance as your breathing becomes more rapid and shallower. This can result in hyperventilation and a lack of proper oxygen intake, delivery and absorption, which limits performance.. You can still match your breathing to your running or cycling tempo, just increase the number of footfalls or pedal strokes you take while breathing in, and do the same while exhaling. Start by inhaling for three steps and exhale for three steps again. When this becomes comfortable, increase this to five steps.. Will altitude training give you the performance boost youre after? We ...

Apart from posture, there is also anxiety. One of the signs of anxiety and stress can also be heavy breathing. When the body begins to breathe too little and deeply instead of breathing at a natural rithm, it is impossible for one to relax. One reason may also be that the chest muscles and the abdomen get tightened and the air gets harder.. Massage plays an important role in learning the body how to relax and how to improve breathing. Respiratory problems such as allergies, sinuses, asthma or bronchitis are a group of conditions that can benefit from massage. In fact, massage can have a positive impact on respiratory function.. Many of the muscles in the front and back of the upper part of the body are breathing accessory. When these muscles are tight and shorten they can block normal breathing and interrupt effective breathing natural rithm. Massage techniques for stretching and relaxing these muscles improves breathing function and breathability. Massage leads to an opening of the chest as ...

If your breathing rate is 30 breaths per minute tidal volume is 200cm3, pulmonary ventilation is 6000, alveolar ventilation rate is (200 - 150) x 30 =1500, then why is an increase in the breathing rate alone not be able to satisfy the demands on the body during exercise:confused:

ECHA guidance recommends that a factor of 2 be applied when doing route to route extrapolation for oral to inhalation exposure; this has been included in this case due to a lack of data or the percentage of oral absorption. Therefore a factor of 2 was applied. Allometric scaling is applied by taking account for the different breathing rates between rats and humans, as described in ECHA technical guidance the oral NOAEL in the rat mg/kg/day *1/0.38 * 6.7/10 = mg/m3 inhalation NOAEC for workers. An additional adjust was made as recommended in ECHA guidance R8.4.3. The oral exposure for the rats was 7 days a week but inhalation exposure of workers is considered to be 5 days a week. This is adjusted by dividing the NOEC by 5/7 or 0.714286. ...

Lydie, RE: I take it that you are of the opinion that the breathing on her own claim is a fake.. No, I do not think it is fake. Fake implies intentional fabrication. I dont think thats the case here.

Im not actually aware of any lineage that went from obligate water breathing to obligate air breathing (losing water breathing in the process), and then lost air breathing while re-evolving water breathing. I know of a few examples where some secondary water breathing adaptions appeared, but air breathing remained the primary method of obtaining oxygen.. But it should be noted that for complex macro-traits, like terrestriality, or wings, theres more than one genetic way to skin the cat, so to speak. Evolution does not have to go wholly in reverse. The second time around somewhat different genetic mechanisms might be co-opted. One could think about it as actually examples of convergent evolution happening in the same lineage, separated in time. (So for example, within the lineage that led from Urbilateria to Orca, a torpedo shaped body for swimming with fins for stabilization and direction control evolved more than once, but each time it was put together differently).. This would be different ...

Forced expiratory flow (FEF) is the flow (or speed) of air coming out of the lung during the middle portion of a forced expiration. It can be given at discrete times, generally defined by what fraction remains of the forced vital capacity (FVC). The usual intervals are 25%, 50% and 75% (FEF25, FEF50 and FEF75), or 25% and 50% of FVC. It can also be given as a mean of the flow during an interval, also generally delimited by when specific fractions remain of FVC, usually 25-75% (FEF25-75%). Average ranges in the healthy population depend mainly on sex and age, with FEF25-75% shown in diagram at left. Values ranging from 50-60% and up to 130% of the average are considered normal.[11] Predicted normal values for FEF can be calculated online and depend on age, sex, height, mass and ethnicity as well as the research study that they are based on. MMEF or MEF stands for maximal (mid-)expiratory flow and is the peak of expiratory flow as taken from the flow-volume curve and measured in liters per second. ...

This concept is generally attributed to an article by West et al. in 1964,[1] but was actually proposed two years earlier by Permutt et al.[2] In this article, Permutt suggests "The pressure in the pulmonary arteries and veins is less at the top than at the bottom of the lung. It is quite likely that there is a portion of the lung toward the top in an upright subject in which the pressure in the pulmonary arteries is less than alveolar pressure.". The concept is as follows: Alveolar pressure (PA) at end expiration is equal to atmospheric pressure (0 cm H20 differential pressure, at zero flow), plus or minus 2 cm H2O (1.5 mmHg) throughout the lung. On the other hand, gravity causes a gradient in blood pressure between the top and bottom of the lung of 20 mmHg in the erect position (roughly half of that in the supine position). Overall, mean pulmonary venous pressure is ~5 mmHg. Local venous pressure falls to -5 at the apexes and rises to +15 mmHg at the bases, again for the erect lung. Pulmonary ...

Sorry I can understand that its quite difficult to understand with these pages because the text is quite small. But this respirator uses GECKEL technology that safely adheres onto your face. Its reusable, safe, self-cleaning, strong, comfortable, and waterproof as well.. The indicator light is not always on. Only when the filters start to run out itll alert you early and itll blink once with a beep. Itll continue to blink and beep every ten minutes until the filters are fully exhausted. When the filter is fully exhausted, thats when the red light comes on and stays on to alert the user that he/she is not being protected..
