    Pulmonary ventilation during speech breathing reflects the sum of the airflow changes used to speak and to meet the metabolic needs of the body. Studying interactions between speaking and breathing may provide insights into the mechanisms of shared respiratory control. The purposes of this study...

    The article presents a study which analyzes the effect of Manual Breathing Assist Technique (MBAT) and shaking on the ventilation of patients with central nervous system (CNS) disease. The study uses analysis of variance (ANOVA) for Tidal volume (TV), Peak Expiratory Flow Rate (PEFR) and...

    The paper resolves whether the sensitivity of challenge testing for exercise induced bronchoconstriction (EIB) in athletes could be increased by using forced expiratory flow at 50% of vital capacity (FEF50) as the measure of expiratory flow in preference to forced expiratory volume in 1 second...

    Patients with severe COPD often exhale along the same flow-volume curve during quite breathing as during forced expiratory vital capacity manoeuvre, and this has been taken as indicating expiratory flow limitation at rest (EFLT). Therefore, EFLT, namely, attainment of maximal expiratory flow...
