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.
These relationships between breathing frequency, body-oxygen test, heart rate
or pulse rate, CO2 content in alveoli, could be found using the
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?
* 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".
Breathing patterns predetermine many lifestyle choices. When people have low body oxygen due to overbreathing (as it is the case with over 90% of modern subjects, see the Homepage for charts, studies, numbers and graphs), they commonly suffer from addictions, low energy, long sleep, poor posture and other effects. With normal or high body O2, all the same people make different choices. The Table that is located right below here provides details. It is your bonus content.
