Attendees should be able to:

  • Explain the cardiac, respiratory, and autonomic anatomy and physiology that underlines HRV biofeedback
  • Discuss the meaning and sources of HRV as well as the correlates of low, normal, and high HRV
  • Explain how to properly use HRV instruments and interpret signals form blood volume pulse, electrocardiogram, and pneumograph sensors
  • Describe and interpret HRV time and frequency domain measurements
  • Explain how to assess and train clients to increase their baroreceptor reflex and HRV time/frequency domain measurements
  • Describe the efficacy of major clinical and optimal performance HRV applications
