 Brahma Sutras by Swami Sivananda
In the Chhandogya Upanishad Vayu is said to be the general absorber of the Devas, "Vayu indeed is the absorber" (IV.3.1); Prana is said to be the general absorber of the organs of the body, "Breath indeed is the absorber" (IV.3.3).
In the Samvarga Vidya of the Chhandogya Upanishad, meditation on Prana with reference to the body and on Vayu with reference to the gods is prescribed.
Therefore, the Purvapakshin maintains that the two meditations can be combined and that Vayu and Prana are non-separate because in their true nature they do not differ.

Consequently, the two main vayu-s are prana vayu, which regulates the "intake" of particles and energy, adjusting it to the particular necessities of our organism, and apana vayu, responsible for the elimination of the unabsorbed residues.
While exhaling, the breath is the expression of apana vayu, which eliminates the used gases (for instance CO2).
The balance of the breath, of the inhalation and exhalation determines the balance of prana vayu and apana vayu.
