Breathing Pattern

Breathing Patterns Can Detect and Indicate Many High Risk Diseases

July 2, 2023

Dysfunctional breathing, also known as Breathing Pattern Disorders (BPD), involves abnormal respiratory patterns, especially in cases of over-breathing or hyperventilation (HVS). BPDs are defined as chronic or recurrent conditions in which the normal biomechanical pattern of breathing is disrupted. This results in dyspnea and associated non-respiratory symptoms that cannot be fully explained by disease pathophysiology.

Breathing pattern alterations interfere with our normal respiratory functions. However, BPD can co-exist with patients who have COPD and even heart diseases. BPD is considered a potential indicator of various health problems throughout the body. For example, dysfunctional breathing can destabilize the mind, muscle movement, metabolism, and even how a person feels. Conditions like chronic fatigue, premenstrual symptoms, body aches, mental health issues, and most importantly, panic and depression can also be identified through BPD.

This study aims to explore how BPD can detect early health issues and other problems that are currently unrecognized.
