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

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
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and Respiratory Acidosis Why is it related to respiratory acidosis? 1. Progression of the disease will make the patient breath harder (hypoventilation) which makes them hold on to carbon dioxide resulting to respiratory acidosis ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- What is ABG? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=88fGs... ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1.

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

CAUTION! Be sure & check with your Dr. about any advice given by Forum Members! Post by al on Aug 26, 2012 23:48:35 GMT -5 Lactic acidosis is a type of acidosis that occurs when the blood becomes too acidic due to the presence of excess lactic acid in the body. Blood pH is tightly controlled because even slight changes in your pH can have severe effects on many organs. Normally, your blood is slightly basic, or alkaline. Acidosis occurs when the ...

Acid base status in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients 348 patients of chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD) were studied for their acid base profile using ABL-3 blood gas analyser (Radiometer, copenhagan). 185 patients (53.1%) had simple disorders (respiratory acidosis53%, respiratory alkalosis25.4%, metabolic acidosis11.3%, metabolic alkalosis10.2%). Mixed disorders were present in 131 patients (34.9%) (respiratory acidosis ...
