Learn to maximise breathing capacity. Breathing is the most important function in the human body, it is the first function that keep us alive. This course provides you with knowledge to improve your energy levels and prevent ageing with correct respiration. Prerequisite:Human Anatomy & Physiology BSC101 or equivalent.

This course describes the art of breathing. It provides you with knowledge to improve your energy levels and prevent ageing with correct respiration. Breathing is the most important function in the human body, it is the first function that keep us alive. Correct breathing gives us energy and prevents ageing.

This course covers: blood, blood pressure, pulmonary ventilation, gas exchange & transport, blood flow and gas transport, cardio respiratory control, cardio respiratory disease, & more.

Das Beste: It was superior to anything I anticipated. Extremely proficient and my guide was empowering and superb - I normally got the best input on assignments and approaches to move forward. My guide likewise made troublesome modules more clearer to me
Zu verbessern: Nothing bad.
