The Effect of the Intra Abdominal Pressure ( IAP ) Breathing

  title={The Effect of the Intra Abdominal Pressure ( IAP ) Breathing},
  author={H. Bando},
Recently, breathing methods are drawing attention. There are some kinds of respiration methods from medical point of view, which are thoracic breathing, abdominal breathing, and thoraco-abdominal breathing [1]. People are usually breathing unconsciously with the manner of thoraco-abdominal type breathing[2]. Occasionally, we may have abdominal breathing on slow and calm situation in the case of yoga exercise or in the autonomous training of psychosomatic medicine. Furthermore, abrupt chest… Expand


Oxygen cost of thoracic and diaphragmatic breathing during hyperventilation in healthy males
Both ΔVO2/body weight and VO2rm decreased significantly with DB when compared to that with TB, during hyperventilation, and results in less respiratory muscle oxygen consumption, even during dynamic exercise. Expand
Effect of slow abdominal breathing combined with biofeedback on blood pressure and heart rate variability in prehypertension.
Slow abdominal breathing combined with EMG biofeedback is an effective intervention to manage prehypertension and the possible mechanism is that slow abdominal breathing could reduce sympathetic activity and meanwhile could enhance vagal activity. Expand
Causal effect of intra-abdominal pressure on maximal voluntary isometric hip extension torque
The current results suggest that IAP has a positive causal effect on hip extension MVC torque and that a sufficient increase in IAP directly leads to an enhancement of hip extensionMVC torque. Expand
Intra-abdominal pressure increases stiffness of the lumbar spine.
Evidence is provided that the stiffness of the lumbar spine is increased when IAP is elevated, and the increase in spinal stiffness was positively correlated with the size of the IAP increase. Expand
Abdominal Binding Improves Neuromuscular Efficiency of the Human Diaphragm during Exercise
AB was associated with isolated and acute improvements in neuromuscular efficiency of the diaphragm during exercise in healthy men, suggesting that AB may be an effective means of enhancing neuromUScular efficiency in clinical populations withDiaphragmatic weakness/dysfunction. Expand
Development of a novel intra-abdominal pressure transducer for large scale clinical studies
Intra-abdominal pressure may be one of the few modifiable risk factors associated with developing a pelvic floor disorder. With one in eight women having surgery to correct a pelvic floor disorder inExpand
Lumbar spine stability can be augmented with an abdominal belt and/or increased intra-abdominal pressure
The results indicate that both wearing an abdominal belt and raised IAP can each independently, or in combination, increase lumbar spine stability, however, the benefits of the belt must be interpreted with caution in the context of the decreased activation of a few trunk extensor muscles. Expand
Intraabdominal pressure in women during CrossFit exercises and the effect of age and parity
Significant difference was found between mean peak IAP of the 5 parous vs the 5 nulliparous women and experience with CrossFit did not affect meanpeak IAP achieved with exercise. Expand
Role of chronic exercise on pelvic floor support and function.
No strong conclusions can be drawn about whether chronic exercise exerts a positive or negative influence on pelvic floor support and function, and adopting longitudinal research methodology that prospectively monitors exercise exposure and subsequent changes in pelvic floor Support and function would help to reduce selection bias associated with cross sectional studies on groups of athletes.

Biomechanics of the spine. Part I: spinal stability.
The assessment of spinal instability remains a major challenge for diagnostic imaging experts and the literature reports a number of biomechanical and clinical definitions of spinal stability, but a consensus definition is lacking. Expand
