Heart rate variability biofeedback in chronic disease management: A systematic review

Background: Heart rate variability biofeedback (HRVB) is a non-pharmacological intervention used in the management of chronic diseases.
Method: A systematic search was performed according to eligibility criteria including adult chronic patients, HRVB as main treatment with or without control conditions, and psychophysiological outcomes as dependent variables.
Results: In total, 29 articles were included. Reported results showed the feasibility of HRVB in chronic patients without adverse effects.

Heart Rate Variability Biofeedback Improves Emotional and Physical Health and Performance: A Systematic Review and Meta Analysis

We performed a systematic and meta analytic review of heart rate variability biofeedback (HRVB) for various symptoms and human functioning. We analyzed all problems addressed by HRVB and all outcome measures in all studies, whether or not relevant to the studied population, among randomly controlled studies. Targets included various biological and psy-chological problems and issues with athletic, cognitive, and artistic performance. Our initial review yielded 1868 papers, from which 58 met inclusion criteria. A significant small to moderate effect size was found favoring HRVB, which does not differ from that of other effective treatments. With

Heart Rate Variability, Health and Well-Being: A Systems Perspective

The development of a new tool, analytic device, or approach frequently facilitates rapid growth in scientific understanding, although the process is seldom linear. The study of heart rate variability (HRV) defined as the extent to which beat-to-beat variation in heart rate varies, is a rapidly maturing paradigm that integrates health and wellness observations across a wide variety of biomedical and psychosocial phenomena and illustrates this nonlinear path of development. The utility of HRV as an analytic and interventive technique goes far beyond its original application as a robust predictor of sudden cardiac death. This Research Topic aims to provide a conceptual

Self-Regulatory Biofeedback Training: An Intervention to Reduce School Burnout and Improve Cardiac functioning in college students

With the detrimental relationship between school burnout and physiological and cognitive functioning now well documented, interventions to ameliorate school burnout symptomology are needed. This study examined the effectiveness of a self-regulatory biofeedback intervention program (Heart RateVariability Coherence Biofeedback Training [HRVCB]) in contrast to a protocol demonstrated to produce cognitive and physiological improvements (a high intensity interval training protocol [HIIT]) as well as a wait-list control condition at decreasing school

Building Resilience in an Urban Police Department

Objective:The aim of this study is to examine a resilience training intervention that impacts autonomic responses to stress and improves cardiovascular risk, psychological, and physiological outcomes in police. Methods: Officers [(n=38) 22 to 54 years] modified emotional and physical responses to stress using self-regulation. Measurements include psychological and physiological measures [eg, heart rate variability (HRV), blood pressure, C-reactive protein)] obtained at three time intervals. Results: Age was significantly (P<0.05) associated with

Coherence: A Novel Nonpharmacological Modality for Lowering Blood Pressure in Hypertensive Patients

Publié le: 17-05-2012

This  study  examined  the  efficacy  of  teaching   emotional   self-regulation   techniques     supported     by     heart     rhythm coherence training (emWave Personal Stress Reliever) as a means to quickly  lower  blood  pressure  (BP)  in  patients   diagnosed   with   hyperten-sion.  Previous  studies  have  demonstrated  systemic  reductions  in  BP  in  both   high   stress   populations   and   patients diagnosed with hypertension using this approach, but to the best of our  knowledge,  an  investigation  of  their  ability  to  produce  immediate

New Hope for Correctional Officers: An Innovative Program for Reducing Stress and Health Risks

This  study  investigated  the  impact of a new stress management program on physiological and psychological stress and health risk factors among 75 correctional officers. The experimental group received training in emotion self-regulation techniques intended to reduce stress and health risk factors. Practice of the techniques was enhanced by heart rate variability feedback, which helped participants  learn  and  sustain  use  of the  self-management tools.  Measures of physiological stress  included  cortisol, DHEA,  cholesterol, triglycerides,  fasting  glucose

The Effects of Emotions on Short-Term Power Spectrum Analysis of Heart Rate Variability

Introduction: This study utilizes HRV analysis to examine a new method of intentionally shifting emotional states, and demonstrates that positive emotions lead to alterations in sympathovagal balance that may be beneficial in the treatment of hypertension. Anger, on the other hand, was shown to significantly increase sympathetic activation.
Summary: Salivary IgA, heart rate and mood were measured in thirty individuals before and after experiencing care or anger. Two methods
