Abstract:

The United States has some of the most expensive health care world wide, with an increase in chronic illness, poorer outcomes, and fragmentation of care.  Patients seek integrative or alternative methods of care in order to participate and improve their own health outcomes.  Promoting cost effective, useful, and safe tools for patients to learn during an office visit allows patients to participate in their own care for improved health.  The clinical question for this systematic review is: What is the evidence for teaching breathing techniques in primary care to improve health outcomes?  Evidence in the literature shows that while breath is vital for life, trained breathing techniques improve health care outcomes such as GERD, anxiety, diabetes, autonomic nervous system disorders, hypertension, pain, immune function, and oxidative stress as evidenced in this review.  This systematic review uses the PRISMA approach, analyzing integrity and value of each article based on seven criteria:  title, abstract, introduction, methods, results, discussion, and findings.  Opportunities for further research are discussed regarding breathing techniques and improved health outcomes.

Key words:  breath, breath work, breathing exercises, “breath* technique*” AND health*, diaphragmatic, yoga, pranayama, autonomic nervous system, GERD, hypertension, anxiety, diabetes, pain, immunity, oxidative stress.
