There is improvement of forced expiratory volume in one second ([FEV.sub.1]), forced vital capacity (FVC), [FEV.sub.1]/FVC, peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR), forced expiratory flow rate 25-75% ([FEF.sup.25-75]), specific airway conductance (sGAW) (P < 0.001), and significant reduction in RAW (P < 0.001) after 4th and 8th weeks of yoga practice in Group A as compared to Group B [Tables 1-3].
It is evident that patients with large lungs will have higher Gaw than patients with smaller lungs and so to make a fair comparison with patients possessing different sized lungs, the Gaw is divided by the thoracic gas volume (VTG), which is comparable to the patient's FRC, to produce specific airway conductance or SGaw which is simply Gaw corrected for lung volume at FRC.
