Purpose This study reports the effects of the Muslim prayer, known as Salat, on heart rate (HR) and blood pressure (BP) while performing and miming the actions of Salat: standing, bowing, prostrating and sitting. Subjects Thirty Muslim subjects were asked to perform the actual and mime Salat. Methods HR and BP were measured using a Schiller AT-102 Electrocardiograph and an Omron SEM-1 Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor. Results The findings revealed that there was a significant difference in the…

The findings show that salat dhuha has significant potential to improve blood pressure and is likely to improve the quality of life for healthy Muslim elderly women.

Salat Dhuha Improves Haemodynamic: A Randomized Controlled Study

It is demonstrated that the Salat Dhuha has a significant potential in improving hemodynamic parameters for elderly women which the more frequent rakaat will give more benefit than less frequent rkaat.

Improvement in cardio-metabolic health and immune signatures in old individuals using daily chores (Salat) as an intervention: A randomized crossover study in a little-studied population

It is demonstrated that the Islamic obligatory and congressional Salat practice is capable of mimicking desirable pro-immune and pro-metabolic health effects.

Evalauation the relation between praying (salat) with physical health in nursing, midwifery and paramedical students of Hormozgan university of medical science

Status of praying and physical health among the students is fine but since this study states the positive effect of praying on physical health, more efforts must be done for trending up students to pray and importance of praying will be understood by them.

Supine effect of passive cycling movement induces vagal withdrawal

It is suggested that passive exercise decreases rMMSD through supine-stimulated mechanoreceptors with no effect on HR or HF, and therefore, rMSSD is not affected by hydrostatic pressure during passive cycling in the supine position.

Islamic praying changes stress-related hormones and genes

The results indicated that cortisol significantly increased and decreased in the first and third groups after Namaz, respectively, and the increase of alpha-amylase also occurred in subjects with a low baseline level of its concentration.



Study of Heart Rate Changes in Different Salat’s Positions

This paper describes the changes in the heart rate for 24 healthy subjects during performing different Salat’s positions and shows that the prostration position has the lowest HR value.

Changes in heart rate and R-wave amplitude with posture.

Body posture has an effect on HR and R-wave amplitude and the changes are probably related to orthostatic haemodynamic stress as well as changes in cardiac electrical axis.

Effect of yoga on cardiovascular and mental status in normal subjects above 30 years of age.

Yogic practice can be used as an intervention in ageing persons to reduce the morbidity and mortality from cardiovascular diseases and mental status in normal subjects above the age of 30 years.

Relationship Study of Heart Rate and Systolic Blood Pressure for Healthy Peoples

An automatic measurement system that can measure systolic blood pressure incessantly based on its relationship with a heart rate is introduced and is capable of determine an incessantly blood pressure monitoring technique based on heart rate using ECG.

Systolic Blood Pressure and Long‐Term Practice of the Transcendental Meditation® and TM‐Sidhi Program: Effects of TM on Systolic Blood Pressure

The findings suggest the beneficial effects of the long‐term practice of the TM and TM‐Sidhi programs on systolic blood pressure, and if self‐selection plays a role, an easily identifiable group already showing traits beneficial to the general population deserves further study.

Evaluation of a new physical exercise taken from salat (prayer) as a short-duration and frequent physical activity in the rehabilitation of geriatric and disabled patients.

During the offering of salat, most of the joints and muscles of the body were involved in physical activities with little effort, which probably play a vital role in cerebral blood flow and postural reflexes.

Effects of body position on autonomic regulation of cardiovascular function in young, healthy adults

Cardiac autonomic activity was not measurably different in prone and supine postures, but heart rate and blood pressure were, and heart rate variability parameters indicated sympathetic dominance during sitting, which should be considered when autonomic regulation of cardiovascular function is studied in different postures.
