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… 



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.

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.

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.

Intra-abdominal pressure increases stiffness of the lumbar spine.

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.

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 in

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.

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.

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.

Musical-Activity Therapy as a Supplemental Method of Rehabilitating Children with Bronchial Asthma

The study entitles the authors to say that the therapeutic efficacy among children with asthmatic syndrome of the musical-activity therapy devised by the authors has been proven.
