In brief: Lung capacity
To some degree, yes.
But this is limited to the physical capacity of the lungs. Cardiopulmary function may improve as well.

In brief: Yes
It helps to lung conditioning and capacity.
It helps as well for muco ciliary clearance (cleaning) of the lungs. You can do also the purse lip technique to improve oxygenation. Like athletes do.
