02. Breathing Patterns and Body Oxygen Test (Buteyko Technique)
This video analyzes most common breathing patterns, including normal breathing pattern, ideal breathing, and common abnormal breathing patterns in the sick.
Dr. Buteyko, the author of the Buteyko breathing technique, analyzed breathing patters of thousands of healthy and sick people. He suggested that their breathing patterns are connected with the results of the Buteyko CP test (body oxygen test).
There are 4 typical types of breathing patterns: ideal breathing for super healthy people, normal breathing or a medical standard, ineffective breathing for the mildly sick, and heavy breathing in the severely sick. Find out exact breathing rates and body oxygenation numbers for these patterns and why abnormal breathing patterns cause health problems..
You can find hundreds of related medical studies. tables, charts, and graphs on NormalBreathing.com with exact references.
Here are some of the resources (more detail about these breathing patterns)
Ideal breathing pattern:
This breath pattern can be found in real yoga masters and other people who can hold their breath for 2-3 minutes after their usual exhalation and only until slight sigs of stress.
Normal breathing pattern:
This pattern was common in ordinary people in 1900-1930. In fact, clinical studies suggest that people breathed even less air than the medical norm for minute ventilation at rest (6 L/min for adults).
Ineffective breathing pattern:
If you visit the Homepage of NormalBreathing.com, I ll see the Table with dozens of studies that show that people with heart disease, asthma, COPD, cancer, diabetes, and many other chronic health problems breathe about 2-3 times more than the medical standard.
Heavy or abnormal breathing pattern in the severely sick:
This pattern is common for hospitalized and critically ill people. Their body oxygenation is less than 10 seconds (the norm is 40) due to very fast and heavy breathing.
Summary of 4 types of breathing patterns (list):
This overview helps us to see what is going with breathing patterns from severely sick to very healthy people: sick people breathe faster and without the automatic pause (no-stop), while healthy people breathe slower and less air per breath (smaller tidal volume).
