21. Effects of Mind Sound Resonance Technique (Yogic Relaxation) on Psychological States, Sleep Quality, and Cognitive Functions in Female Teachers: A Randomized, Controlled Trial. (Abstract)

Effects of Mind Sound Resonance Technique (Yogic Relaxation) on Psychological States, Sleep Quality, and Cognitive Functions in Female Teachers: A Randomized, Controlled Trial. Context • Several studies have revealed a high rate of physical and psychological problems from stress among schoolteachers. Yoga is one of the mind-body interventions known to alleviate stress and effects. The mind sound resonance technique (MSRT), a yoga-based, mindfulness relaxation is recognized as having a positive (...) facilitated a reduction in the levels of stress, anxiety, fatigue, and psychological distress.

25. The effectiveness of relaxation training in the quality of life and anxiety of patients with asthma. Full Text available with Trip Pro

The effectiveness of relaxation training in the quality of life and anxiety of patients with asthma. With a 5-10% global prevalence, asthma, as a chronic condition which can strongly affect the quality of life of patients and care givers, needs comprehensive approach, including medications and psychological techniques, to get the optimal control. This is why the current study aimed to assess the effectiveness of the Papworth method relaxation training among patients with asthma, considering (...) reduced anxiety and improved quality of life.Through a randomized controlled trial, 30 patients with asthma 20-45 years of age referring to a tertiary university hospital in Tehran enrolled two study groups, including disease cases and controls. The Papworth method of relaxation was used and was finally assessed for its effectiveness by two questionnaires, namely STAI for anxiety and SF-36 for the quality of life. Pre-test and post-test were done for both groups.The scores of the anxiety questionnaire

26. Preference for different relaxation techniques by COPD patients: comparison between six techniques Full Text available with Trip Pro

Preference for different relaxation techniques by COPD patients: comparison between six techniques A review of the effectiveness of relaxation techniques for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients has shown inconsistent results, but studies have varied in terms of technique and outcome measures.To determine patient preference for different relaxation techniques.Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients were presented with six techniques via a DVD and asked to rate the techniques (...) in terms of effectiveness, rank in order of likely use, and comment.Patients differed in the technique preferred and reason for that preference, but the most commonly preferred technique both for effectiveness and ease of use was "thinking of a nice place" followed by progressive relaxation and counting. Familiarity and ease of activity were commonly given reasons for preference.Rather than providing patients with a single technique that they might find difficult to implement, these results suggest

28. Quantification of in vivo transverse relaxation of glutamate in the frontal cortex of human brain by radio frequency pulse-driven longitudinal steady state. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Quantification of in vivo transverse relaxation of glutamate in the frontal cortex of human brain by radio frequency pulse-driven longitudinal steady state. The principal excitatory neurotransmitter glutamate plays an important role in many central nervous system disorders. Because glutamate resides predominantly in glutamatergic neurons, its relaxation properties reflect the intracellular environment of glutamatergic neurons. This study developed an improved echo time-independent technique (...) for measuring transverse relaxation time and demonstrated that this radio frequency (RF)-driven longitudinal steady state technique can reliably measure glutamate transverse relaxation in the frontal cortex, where structural and functional abnormalities have been associated with psychiatric symptoms.Bloch and Monte Carlo simulations were performed to improve and optimize the RF-driven, longitudinal, steady-state (MARzss) technique to significantly shorten scan time and increase measurement precision

29. Reconstruction of bilateral inferomedial gluteal defects after resection of hidradenitis suppurativa with symmetrical keystone flaps designed parallel to relaxed skin-tension lines: A case report. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Reconstruction of bilateral inferomedial gluteal defects after resection of hidradenitis suppurativa with symmetrical keystone flaps designed parallel to relaxed skin-tension lines: A case report. Surgical treatment of hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is challenging. Wide excision of affected lesions followed by skin graft or flap coverage has been recommended to achieve remission and prevent recurrence. Herein, we present our experience of bilateral inferomedial gluteal defects coverage using (...) symmetrical keystone flaps (KFs) designed parallel to relaxed skin-tension lines (RSTLs).An 18-year-old man was admitted for chronic inflammatory lesions in both inferomedial gluteal areas.Physical examination revealed multiple sinuses with broad surrounding scars in both inferomedial gluteal areas, which led to a diagnosis of HS.We performed wide excision on all affected lesions. The size of the final defects was 6 × 10 cm on the right side, and 5 × 9 cm on the left side. We covered the defects with KFs

32. Acute effects of psychological relaxation techniques between two physical tasks. (Abstract)

Acute effects of psychological relaxation techniques between two physical tasks. The concept of recovery strategies includes various ways to achieve a state of well-being, prevent underrecovery syndromes from occurring and re-establish pre-performance states. A systematic application of individualised relaxation techniques is one of those. Following a counterbalanced cross-over design, 27 sport science students (age 25.22 ± 1.08 years; sports participation 8.08 ± 3.92 h/week) were randomly (...) over all six sprints, F(4,96) = 4.06, P = 0.004, [Formula: see text] = 0.15. Post-hoc tests indicated that after systematic breathing interventions, F(1,24) = 5.02, P = 0.033, [Formula: see text] = 0.18, participants performed significantly better compared to control sessions. As the focus of this study lied on basic mechanisms of relaxation techniques in sports, this randomised controlled trial provides us with distinct knowledge on their effects, i.e., systematic breathing led to better

33. The effects of progressive muscular relaxation and breathing control technique on blood pressure during pregnancy. Full Text available with Trip Pro

The effects of progressive muscular relaxation and breathing control technique on blood pressure during pregnancy. Hypertensive disorders in pregnancy are the main cause of maternal and fetal mortality; however, they have no definite effective treatment. The researchers aimed to study the effects of progressive muscular relaxation and breathing control technique on blood pressure (BP) during pregnancy.This three-group clinical trial was conducted in Mashhad health centers and governmental (...) hospitals. Sixty pregnant (after 20 weeks of gestational age) women with systolic BP ≥ 135 mmHg or diastolic BP ≥ 85 mmHg were assigned to three groups. Progressive muscular relaxation and breathing control exercises were administered to the two experimental groups once a week in person and in the rest of the days by instructions given on a CD for 4 weeks. BP was checked before and after the interventions. BP was measured before and after 15 min subjects' waiting without any especial intervention

38. Relaxation-guided imagery reduces perioperative anxiety and pain in children: a randomized study. (Abstract)

Relaxation-guided imagery reduces perioperative anxiety and pain in children: a randomized study. Several studies have shown the efficacy of psychological interventions in reducing preoperative anxiety in children undergoing surgery. This study aims to investigate the effectiveness of a specific non-pharmacological technique, the relaxation-guided imagery, in reducing both preoperative anxiety and postoperative pain in a sample of 60 children (6-12 years old) undergoing minor surgery who were (...) randomly assigned to the experimental group (N = 30) or the control group (N = 30).
