Yoga and chemoreflex response to hypoxia and hypercapnia.

Erratum in

  • Lancet 2000 Nov 4;356(9241):1612.

Abstract

We tested whether chemoreflex sensitivity could be affected by the practice of yoga, and whether this is specifically because of a slow breathing rate obtained during yoga or as a general consequence of yoga. We found that slow breathing rate per se substantially reduced chemoreflex sensitivity, but long-term yoga practice was responsible for a generalised reduction in chemoreflex.
