Controlled breathing works. Does oxygen play a part?

I've mentioned before that breathing out twice as long as in has the effect of reducing raised blood pressure (in my case 20/20 in 15 minute). It activates the parasympathetic nervous system bringing about a closer balance between the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. I am interested in the role oxygen plays in this and in pain states. This article is really worth reading. Food for thought.
