Cold Pressor Test
All the above steps were repeated with a modification that subjects performed alternate nostril breathing (ANB) exercise during cold pressor test and continued performing it for next 5 minutes. All the parameters were recorded before cold pressor test (CPT), immediately after CPT and 5 minutes after CPT.
Statistical analysis was done by One-way ANOVA and Tukey post Hoc tests using the [window] SPSS Statistics 17.0 version. Data were expressed as mean and standard deviation and p –value<0.05). However, all the cardiovascular parameters returned back to normal after 5 minutes and there was no significant difference in parameters before CPT and 5 minutes after CPT with ANB.
