Respiration Animation - Very Cool!

Thank you to Jenny Otto for finding this animation!  Thanks to Betty Larsen's brother for this translation for the video!  And to John Charping, Betty's husband, for sending the translation to me!  Jenny, Betty & John are my senior teachers.  Each of them are incredibly generous!  Most of all, thanks to the creator of this animation!

1. The total respiration for all (everyone).

2. 7 levels. Hypophyse is the pituitary gland.

3. faux du cerveau is fold of the brain.

4. The cervical diaphragm absorbs and neutralises the tensions originating from the top and the bottom of the body.

5. All of these anatomical parts are probably obvious.

6. The diaphragm nerve plexus is the central part of the diaphragm (white zone).

7. The perinée (inferior part of the pelvic basin between the anus and the genitals) viewed from above.

8. The perinée viewed from below.

9. The viscera follow the movement of the thoracic diaphragm and push from top to bottom on the pelvic diaphragm.

10. The psoas (the two anterior lateral muscle pairs of the second dorsal vertebrae, in synergy with the thoracic diaphragm, puts the lumbar column under tension providing stable support to the diaphragm pillar.

11. The sacrum makes itself vertical and puts the posterior musculature of the spine under tension.

12. The posterior muscles of the spine activate the ribs like the slats of a shutter and places them in position to inspire.

13. Same as #4.

14. The superior ribs have a movement like a pump handle. The inferior like a bucket handle and the middle ones have a movement mixed.

15. The abdominals, active in forced expiration, give support to the diaphragm and to the viscera.
