After Quitting Smoking How to Clean Lungs? This Amazing Drink of Three Plants Will Clean Your Lungs!

Exercise And The Lungs

The amount of air you need to breathe in depends on how active you are. When you are sitting down you only take in about 15 breaths a minute, giving you around 12 litres of air (a litre is one and three-quarter pints). From this your lungs will extract just one fifth of a litre of oxygen. During exercise your breathing and heart rate increase. Exercising flat out, a top-class athlete can expect to increase his/her breathing rate to around 40 to 60 breaths a minute. This means they take in an incredible 100 to 150 litres of air, extracting around five litres of oxygen every single minute. Even those of us with more modest goals need to double our lung intake when we exercise. Our lungs must be able to respond to our bodys increased demands for oxygen. As you start to move about, the muscles in your body send messages to your brain that they need more oxygen. Your brain then sends signals to the muscles that control breathing your diaphragm and the muscles between your ribs so that they shorten and relax more often. This causes you to take more breaths. More oxygen will be absorbed from your lungs and carried to the muscles you are using to exercise mainly your arms and legs. For yo Continue reading >>

    Why does Ketoacidosis cause coma? How is it treated?




    1 Answer







    I’m assuming that you do know that ketoacidosis does not have to mean that you have high blood sugar. It means that you have a high level of ketones in your blood, which are usually by-products of your body trying to break down fatty acids for fuel it’s not getting from your food intake.
    It is usually treated with fluids, electrolytes, and insulin. It is much more common in those with type 1 diabetes then type 2, but it can still occur.

    You can look up more specific information on diabetes at the Mayo Clinic site.

Lactate Levels - British Lung Foundation | Healthunlocked

could anybody,in laymans term,try and explain to me,lactate levels combined with COPD? joedimagio , so far as I know has it something to do with exercise where the lactate levels are been measured.It would be some how a benefit, but here is a link for a article I found. Hope it will explain a bit My understanding is that when we have normal levels of oxygen in our blood then it is used to turn blood sugar into carbon dioxide an water (respiration in our cells). If our oxygen levels are reduced, either because we are using it up quickly when exercising or when our breathing is poor, as in COPD, then instead of sugar being turned into carbon dioxide and water it becomes lactate (or lactic acid) ... called anaerobic respiration. So high levels of lactate would I think be connected with low blood oxygen .... athletes have to develop lactate tolerance when competing, I think high levels for long periods can be dangerous, undiagnosed diabetics can also have high lactate levels as low insulin levels stops oxygen being used in cells. postscript has summed it up pretty well, but while researching the subject I came across the following, which I thought interesting . . . [Quote] Perhaps the Continue reading >>

    Hello.
    So, I recently got discharged from the hospital for being admitted for Diabetic Ketoacidosis.
    My problem is, I don't remember any of the day I was admitted, except for short, sporadic moments of consciousness where I remember yelling, screaming and clawing at what I thought were 'monsters' from Deadspace 2, a game I play. When this was happening, It to me was a dream, did not seem real, except for the 'monsters'. When I came to and was coherent, my father was there and explained to me briefly what I thought I had been dreaming, was me actually yelling and screaming hysterically at the nurses, clawing at them, ripping out my IVs and I had to be restrained. He told me that when I was admitted, my glucose levels were over a thousand and I didn't know that was even possible? I did not recognize him or anyone else for that matter. Basically, I was hallucinating and I barely remember it.
    Now, I've been out for about a week, but the memories of the hallucinations I do have, the nightmares that ensue every night and the many other PTSD related symptoms I have make me wonder; Do you think the elevated levels of my blood could have caused me to have those hallucinations? Maybe, in some weird way the sugar acted as a toxin in my brain and cause me to trip and hallucinate? I don't like not knowing what's going on and I honestly don't have a lot of people that I know in real life I can talk to about this.
    Thanks.

    I don't know if it's documented but I'd imagine it's possible. Aside from the elevated BG, in DKA in your blood turns into acid so I'd imagine that would have an impact on your mental state. Then the other side is that DKA is basically starvation - you are severely dehydrated and lacking in body fuel. Hallucinations are commonly associated with starvation so it wouldn't surprise me if they accompanied DKA.

  3. Subby

    It wouldn't surprise me either. The time I came close to DKA I wouldn't say I was hallucinating, but I was delirious and slipping in and out of what I would call an altered state. See a doctor if this goes on. I don't know what they can do, but they might have some good ideas.

Lactic Acid Levels In Patients With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Accomplishing Unsupported Arm Exercises

Patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) may suffer dyspnea when performing unsupported arm exercises (UAE). However, some factors related to the tolerance of the upper limbs during these exercises are not well understood. Our investigation was to determine if an unsupported arm exercise test in patients with COPD accomplishing diagonal movements increases lactic acid levels; also, we assessed the metabolic, ventilatory and cardiovascular responses obtained from the unsupported arm exercise test. The study used results of maximal symptom limited tests with unsupported arms and legs performed on 16 patients with COPD. In order to do the test, some metabolic, respiratory and cardiovascular parameters such as ), respiratory rate (RR), pulmonary ventilation (VE), heart rate (HR) and blood pressure (BP) were measured during the exercise tests. Furthermore, blood lactate concentration was measured during the arm test. We detected a significant increase in the mean blood lactate , VE and RR from the resting to the peak phase of the UAE test. The mean values of and VE obtained at the peak of the UAE test corresponded to 52.5%, 50.0% and 61.2%, respectively, of the maxima Continue reading >>

    Wow, I did not know that. Have had about 200 or more for the last 3 or 4 days, every test, and also felt like the flu was coming on. I knew the shoulder pain was associated with diabetes but not the rest. That explains it.
    Fasting this morning was back to 90, and felt good, still do, so maybe...
