In this study, physically active men were compared with sedentary life style men, there was an increase in the forced vital capacity, forced expiratory volume, peak expiratory flow rate in physically active men, thus, enhancing the pulmonary functional capacity in them.
The trial indicated a statistically significant improvement compared with dual combination therapies in six out of seven lung function primary endpoints based on forced expiratory volume in one second assessments in patients with moderate to very severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
BMI: Body mass index, FVC: Forced vital capacity, FEV1: Forced expiratory volume at the end of 1 second, FEV1/FVC ratio of forced expiratory volume at the end of 1 second and forced vital capacity, PEFR: Peak expiratory flow rate Table 2: Correlation of BMI with pulmonary function parameters in male participants Parameters Male BMI<25 BMI>25 R P R P FVC 0.
Multiple linear regression analysis was conducted to analyse the effect of age, smoking and the two single nucleotide polymorphisms on forced expiratory volume in 1 second.
In addition, this study demonstrated a significant improvement in lung function as measured by forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1).
Forced vital capacity (FVC) and Forced Expiratory Volume in the
RESULTS: Both the sexes responded similarly to the short-term practice of pranayama by showing significant increase in the lung parameters like the vital capacity, tidal volume, inspiratory reserve volume, expiratory reserve volume, forced expiratory volume in first second and peak expiratory flow rate.
In our cohort of school age children, breastfeeding was associated with modest improvement in forced mid-expiratory flow (FEF50) in our whole group and with improvements in forced vital capacity (FVC) and forced expiratory volume at 1 second (FEV1) only in the children of asthmatic mothers," Claudia E.
In the six trials, efficacy was measured based on changes in forced expiratory volume testing.
More specifically, the purpose of this study was to compare forced vital capacity (FVC), forced expiratory volume in one second as a percent of forced vital capacity (FEV1/FVC%), maximum inspiratory pressure (MIP), and maximum expiratory pressure (MEP) values obtained during standing, sitting, forward sitting, supine, and prone positions.
Lung function assessment included forced vital capacity (FVC), forced expiratory volume and peak expiratory flow (PEF).
Study participants had a mean baseline forced expiratory volume in 1 second of 33% of predicted, indicative of very severe COPD.
