Effects of Various Angle on Respiration Function in Adults


The purpose of this study is to find standing angle changes how effect on the pulmonary function. After pre-test, 13 healthy adult males and 12 females were recruited and had been agreed to participate in the study as the subjects (total 30). The participants were changed in their position (0˚ supine position, 45˚ lean sitting position, 90˚ standing position) and were measured up the pulmonary function. The results of three angles in FVC (Forced Vital Capacity), FEV₁ (Forced Expiratory Volume at one second), FEV₁/ FVC, show the significant difference. However, PEF (Peak Expiratory Flow) shows no significant difference. In conclusion, this study demonstrated that 90˚ standing position has more effect on respiration than 0˚ supine position and 45˚ lean sitting position.
