}
Effects of Pranayama was studied on COPD patients considering PFT, blood gases, 6MWT and SGRQ scores and compared with control. Forty eight patients with severe COPD were randomly divided (24 each) into two groups. Group 1 patients were trained to do paranayama for 3 months for at least half an hour duration. Both the groups were allowed to continue with their usual physical activity and medications. Spirometry, ABG, 6MWT was done and SGRQ scores were measured before and after study. Training… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Is a pulmonary rehabilitation program effective in COPD patients with chronic hypercapnic failure?
TLDR
Given the significant reductions in pCO2 levels and significant increases in exercise capacity and QoL parameters after PR, the patients with chronic hypercapnic failure apparently benefited from the PR.
Effects of pranayam breathing on respiratory pressures and sympathovagal balance of patients with chronic airflow limitation and in control subjects.
TLDR
The improvement in MIP in controls indicated the positive effect of Pranayam exercise; however, it may not be an adequately stressful exercise to produce changes in the respiratory parameters of COPD patients.
Effect of yoga on FEV1, 6-minute walk distance (6-MWD) and quality of life in patients with COPD group B.
TLDR
Yoga affects FEV1, 6-MWD, and quality of life in patients with Group B COPD in Indonesia.
Impact of short-term Bhastrika Pranayama on respiratory parameters: an ancient practice with contemporary significance
TLDR
The significant dif ferences were noted in Tidal Volume, Expiratory Reserve Volume, Inspiratory Reserve volume, Vital Capacity and Inspiratories Capacity in the experimental group, however, insignificant changes over that 4-week period were noting in the control group.
Effect of comprehensive yoga therapy on pulmonary function among various groups with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
TLDR
Regular yoga practice improves the lung parameters and also the respiratory muscle strength and COPD patients falling under higher age groups showed more of benefit with yoga.
AMELIORATION OF QUALITY OF LIFE AND LUNG FUNCTION OF CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE BY PRANIC HEALING AS ADJUVANT THERAPY
TLDR
PH group showed a positive tendency in 6 MWT and HRSD scores with insignificant difference between the groups, and no serious adverse events occurred during the study.
Impact of Short-Term Training of Anulom Vilom (Alternative Nostril Breathing) on Respiratory Parameters
TLDR
The primary aim of this research was to determine the impact of short-term anulom vilom pranayama on respiratory parameters and it indicates that no significant changes over that 4- week period were noted in the control group.
A study on influence of pranayama on high sensitivity C-reactive protein and creatinine kinase levels in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients
TLDR
The statistically significant reduction in inflammatory makers, C-reactive protein and creatinine kinase level following 6-week yogic practices in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patient suggests including such yogic interventions in the regular management protocols of chronic obstructives pulmonary disease patients.
Efficacy of Bhramari Pranayama on Dyspnoea among the Patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

TLDR
Bhramari Pranayama was effective to improve the pulmonary function of COPD patients and showed statistical association between demographic profile namely; gender and duration of illness (p<0.05) level in study group.
Effects of yoga training in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
It is suggested that yoga training has a positive effect on improving lung function and exercise capacity and could be used as an adjunct pulmonary rehabilitation program in COPD patients, however, further studies are needed to substantiate the preliminary findings and to investigate the long-term effects of yoga training.

There was significant increase in FVC, FEV-1 and PEFR at the end of 12 weeks, compared with 6 weeks and 6 weeks before.
Aerobic and strength training in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
TLDR
The addition of strength training to aerobic training in patients with COPD is associated with significantly greater increases in muscle strength and mass, but does not provide additional improvement in exercise capacity or quality of life.

TLDR
It is suggested that all patients with COPD will benefit from exercise rehabilitation, and the measures of general health-related quality of life improved in any of the three groups.
