    Since caffeine caused a lower tidal volume and alveolar ventilation, endurance has likely increased since the caffeinated individuals undergo less respiratory muscle fatigue. All of the cardiovascular data was nonsignificant, but general trends of the TPR data supported the hypothesis. Thus, another indicator of increased endurance was the increase in TPR at peak work rate which shows that caffeine induced an increase in the activity of the sympathetic nervous system and resulted in increased…

    • 6 Pages

    Conclusion Heart rate variability has considerable potential to assess the fluctuations in the autonomic nervous system. Here we have examined the impact of meditation – Dialogue with the Body – on heart rate variability. A relaxing effect of meditation on Heart rate variability was observed. Thus this non-invasive methodology is of substantial utility to evaluate autonomic control mechanisms in spite of an incomplete understanding of the physiological significance of HRV parameters. There…
