Effects of pranayama on respiratory parameters among healthy athlete boys
Author(s): C Abhaya Prakash, Viswanatha. T
Abstract: While breathing is fundamental, our life experiences can alter the pattern of this natural process, distorting its rhythm and flow. When this happens, whether brought about by stress or simply how one comes to inhabit one’s body/mind, breath’s life-affirming, energizing, and nourishing capacities are disrupted. Lung parameters like Respiratory rate (R.R), Tidal volume (VT), Inspiratory reserve volume (I.R.V), Expiratory reserve volume (E.R.V), Vital capacity (VT), Forced expiratory volume in first second (FEV1) and Peak expiratory flow rate (P.E.F.R) were recorded. Peak expiratory flow rate (P.E.F.R) was also increased significantly. The mean value initially was 416.90+36.423 Litres min while the final mean value was 498.2+30.364 Litres/min The ‘t’ value was found to be -33.609 and p<0.001
