OBJECTIVES The objective of this study was to evaluate the immediate effect of slow pace bhastrika pranayama (respiratory rate 6/min) for 5 minutes on heart rate and blood pressure and the effect of the same breathing exercise for the same duration of time (5 minutes) following oral intake of hyoscine-N-butylbromide (Buscopan), a parasympathetic blocker drug. [] Key Method First, subjects had to sit comfortably in an easy and steady posture (sukhasana) on a fairly soft seat placed on the floor keeping…

Immediate effect of a slow pace breathing exercise Bhramari pranayama on blood pressure and heart rate.

The result indicated that slow pace Bhramari pranayama for 5 minutes, induced parasympathetic dominance on cardiovascular system.

Immediate effect of slow bhastrika pranayama on blood glucose, heart rate and blood pressure

It can be concluded that slow Bhastrika pranayama could reduce the blood glucose level, heart rate and blood pressure by activating the parasympathetic nervous system which enhance the healthy cardiovascular functioning of the body control high blood glucose by stimulating the insulin secretion from pancreas.

Effect of Sudarshan Kriya (SDK) On Heart Rate, Blood Pressure & Peak Expiratory Flow Rate

This study showed that short-term SDK significantly improves the cardio respiratory system at rest and it seems clear that by decreasing HR and SBP by way of breathing meditation, the work of the heart is decreased as well.

Immediate cardiovascular effects of pranava pranayama in hypertensive patients.

Pranava pranayama, a simple and cost effective technique can be used in the management of hypertensive patients in addition to the regular medical management, and its usefulness in the long- term management of hypertension is concluded.

Immediate effect of chandra nadi pranayama (left unilateral forced nostril breathing) on cardiovascular parameters in hypertensive patients

It is concluded that CNP is effective in reducing HR and SP in hypertensive patients on regular standard medical management and recommended that this simple and cost effective technique be added to the regular management protocol of HT and utilized when immediate reduction of BP is required in day-to-day as well as clinical situations.

Impact of Slow Breathing Pranayama on Heart Rate Variability.

Anulom-Vilom pranayama plays a significant role in improving the various cardiovascular functions of an individual and helps in improved the quality of life.

Effect of Progressive Muscle Relaxation and Slow Deep Breathing on Blood Pressure and Heart Rate on Hypertensive Clients

PMR and SDB programs need to be developed as independent nursing interventions on the nursing care of patients with hypertension to control BP and HR.

The Effects of Fast and Slow Yoga Breathing on Cerebral and Central Hemodynamics

FB may be an effective yoga breathing technique for eliciting cerebral brain oxygenation indicated by increased Hbdiff, and these results may be applicable to both healthy and clinical populations.

Effects of slow breathing exercise on cardiovascular functions, pulmonary functions & galvanic skin resistance in healthy human volunteers - a pilot study

Beneficial effects of pranayama started appearing within a week of regular practice, and the first change appeared to be a reduction in sympathetic tone, indicating that regular practice of PranayAMA causes a reduction of sympathetic tone within a period as short as 7 days.



Effect of alternate nostril breathing exercise on cardiorespiratory functions.

Results indicate that regular practice of ANB (Nadisudhi) increases parasympathetic activity.

Effects of Hatha yoga and Omkar meditation on cardiorespiratory performance, psychologic profile, and melatonin secretion.

It is suggested that yogic practices can be used as psychophysiologic stimuli to increase endogenous secretion of melatonin, which, in turn, might be responsible for improved sense of well-being.

Slow Breathing Increases Arterial Baroreflex Sensitivity in Patients With Chronic Heart Failure

Data suggest that in patients with CHF, slow breathing, in addition to improving oxygen saturation and exercise tolerance as has been previously shown, may be beneficial by increasing baroreflex sensitivity.

Heart Rate Variability Biofeedback Increases Baroreflex Gain and Peak Expiratory Flow

Heart rate variability biofeedback had strong long-term influences on resting baroreflex gain and pulmonary function and should be examined as a method for treating cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases.

Apparently less value of blood pressure among healthy people: is the cuff width responsible?

Cuff size should be considered carefully to avoid misinterpretation of borderline hypertensives as normotensives, which may be the cause of less value of blood pressure in normotensive population in Nepal.

The influence of the respiratory cycle on the EEG.

In order to evaluate the influence of the respiratory cycle on the EEG, we compared the power spectral analysis of the EEG performed by fast Fourier transformation during inspirium and exspirium in
