Types of Breathing Patterns, Graphs, and Body Oxygen
The parameters of breathing patterns (typical minute ventilation or breathing rates, respiratory frequency, body-oxygen levels, duration of inhalations, exhalations, and the automatic pause) all are calculated using medical references from the Homepage and other sources.
The following web pages provide several types of respiratory patterns with typical parameters or values, including durations of inhalations, exhalations and automatic pauses; minute ventilation; CP or body oxygen content; and respiratory frequency. This section (Breathing Patterns and Body-Oxygen Levels) considers the following types of respiratory patterns or the list of respiratory patterns.
Pages devoted to breathing patterns
Normal breathing patterns (in healthy people): What is the type of breathing pattern that is found in healthy or normal people?
* Ineffective breathing patterns (in the sick): What is the respiratory pattern for mildly sick people?
* Heavy breathing patterns in the severely sick: Breathing pattern type in the severely sick and critically ill people
* Ideal breathing patterns: Is there a special "ideal breathing" pattern for super health and ideal body oxygenation?
* Types of breathing patterns: Summary or list of 4 types of regular respiratory breathing patterns and their corresponding body oxygenation
* Irregular breathing patterns and disordered respiratory patterns: What about the body oxygen level in cases of irregular breathing patterns and/or disordered breathing?
These relationships between breathing frequency, body-oxygen test, heart rate or pulse rate, CO2 content in alveoli, could be found using the Buteyko Table of Health Zones, which was created by Dr. K. Buteyko, the author of the Buteyko breathing method.
* Apart from these educational topics, there is a challenge that relates to our poor and limited ability to sense our breathing. That means the same person may have wide variations in automatic or unconscious breathing without noticing these large changes. This effect is common even for those people who regularly practice breathing exercises. Breath awareness: When do we notice that our respiratory pattern is too deep or heavy? Why so late?
* The human organism can be considered as a mechanical machine that extracts oxygen from air and uses it for energy generation. Hence, we can consider the efficiency coefficient of the human body by finding the percentage of oxygen that is trapped by the lungs for different respiratory patterns. Lungs Oxygen Extraction: How efficient are the human lungs in oxygen extraction (depending on the breathing pattern type) for 4 breathing patterns?
Here is a video clip (from www.GoogleVideo.com) about different breathing patterns and their effects on cell oxygenation: "Breathing Patterns and Body-Oxygen Level".
