Psychologists are interested in respiration from a number of points of view. How do psychological factors affect respiration? How does respiration effect psychological factors such as concentration, emotion etc.?
See the following subjects :
Abnormal or pathological breathingEdit
- Agonal respiration
- Apneustic respirations
- Artificial respiration
- Ataxic respiration
- Biot's respiration
- Cheyne-Stokes respiration
- Hypoventilation (also known as respiratory depression) occurs when ventilation is inadequate to perform needed gas exchange
- Inspiratory paroxysmal respiration (also known as "reverse sneezing"), a phenomenon observed in dogs (Especially small dogs)
- Respiratory arrest, the cessation of the normal tidal flow of the lungs due to paralysis of the diaphragm
- Respiratory therapy or Inhalation therapy, the assessment and treatment of respiratory and cardiovascular pathologies
