EPISODE 438: Respiratory Therapy

If you’re interested in pranayama and breathwork, there is so much more to discover than simply “oxygenation.” As a student of yoga breathing for over a decade, there continues to be a lack of real scientific teaching, so on this week’s podcast, we’ll nerd out on biomechanics and chemistry of breathing.

Listen in to learn:

  • Why you must consider both oxygenation and ventilation
  • The importance of C02
  • Ideal blood oxygen content
  • Education and career opportunities for potential respiratory therapists
  • The utility of arterial blood gas (ABG) in an ICU
