Is good lung capacity indicative of a good heart?


Yes it is, if you have an increased lung capacity it can help the heart pump properly to deliver enough blood to your body. A healthy lung can also be a healthy heart with proper exercise a day to help your lung increase its capacity.

The answer is yes, a person with good lung capacity indicates that the person has a healthy heart. One study showed that lower lung capacity or lung volume increases the risk of having a stroke or heart attack. This can be linked to the increased in CRP or C-reactive protein (which is a marker of inflammation) levels in the blood which increases the risk of cardiovascular diseases. Another study also showed that lower lung capacity makes the heart weaker and it increases the person in having a heart failure. Having a low lung capacity means that the person is not physically active which means lesser oxygen demand to his body which leads to slower pumping of oxygenated blood by the heart throughout his body. While a person who is physically active and fit means that his lung capacity is much larger to supply the needed oxygen in his body making his heart to pump efficiently preventing cardiac atrophy or heart failure. In general, having a good lung capacity means that the person is physically active and it is also a good sign that the person's heart is in perfect condition.

I'm doing a smart breathing mask that elevates the resistance levels during a workout by measuring the heart rate with a tiny sensor. I have tried: Still writing my thesis. I think it was caused by: There's no problem I just want to activate the diaphragm muscles by limiting the air intake and make a smart product for it
