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

The Impact of HeartMath Resiliency Training on HealthCare Providers

Gepubliceerd op: 02-12-2019

Background: Health care providers must think clearly and make critical decisionsunder stressful circumstances. Providing effective strategies for managing stress in the moment helps mitigate the physical, emotional, and psychological impacts associated with caring for others and promotes resiliency. Staff may also utilize these techniques with patients and their families to help alleviate the symptoms of stress that may be experienced as the result of illness. Aim: The purpose of this study was to measure whether HeartMath techniques reduce stress and improve resiliency in health care providers. Methods: Study participants were asked to complete the Personal and Organizational

Heart Rate Variability: New Perspectives on Assessment of Stress and Health Risk at the Workplace

Introduction: Cardiovascular diseases are the highest cause of death in the world. Many of these deaths may be workplace related. Long hours at work seem to be influencing the increased risks of heart diseases. Workplace stress can be defined as the “discrepancies between the physiological demands within a workplace and the inability of employees to either manage or cope with such work demands.” The varied nature and perception of stress are exemplified from literature that shows stress being either a stimulus, or a response, or a stimulus–

Combining Biofeedback with Stress Management Interventions: A Systematic Review of Physiological and Psychological Effects

Gepubliceerd op: 02-01-2019

Current mental healthcare systems experience difficulties meeting the challenges of a growing population with elevated stress symptoms. Outpatient stress management interventions have already proven to be effective in routine care and recent technological advances now allow to expand such interventions, for example by adding a physiological component like biofeedback. Adding biofeedback to stress management interventions appears promising, but there is a lack of insight into the general conceptualization and evaluation of the resulting

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

Heart Rate Variability and Cognitive Bias Feedback Interventions to Prevent Post‑Deployment PTSD: Results from a Randomized Controlled Trial

Gepubliceerd op: 20-07-2018

There is a long history of pre-deployment PTSD prevention efforts in the military and effective pre-deployment strategies to prevent post-deployment PTSD are still needed. Materials and Methods: This randomized controlled trial included three arms: heart rate variability biofeedback (HRVB), cognitive bias modification for interpretation (CBM-I), and control. The hypothesis was that pre-deployment resilience training would result in lower post-deployment PTSD symptoms compared with control. Army National Guard soldiers (n =

Groepsverslag Stress REM vragenlijsten mei 2018

Gepubliceerd op: 15-05-2018

Het Soffos onderzoeksinstituut heeft in 2018 de resultaten van 1129 HeartMath coaching interventies geevalueerd. De slotconclusie van het rapport is dat de cliënten wezenlijk verbeterd zijn in hun omgang met stress door de coaching volgens de HeartMath methodiek. Bij alle dimensies is sprake van een significante verbetering van de gemiddelde scores op tijdstip T2 ten opzichte van tijdstip T1. De P-waarden zijn daarbij allen onder de 0,001, dit betekent dat de kans dat de uitslag beïnvloed wordt door andere omstandigheden dan de HeartMath coaching marginaal is.

Physical Activity, Mindfulness Meditation, or Heart RateVariability Biofeedback for Stress Reduction

Abstract: In contemporary western societies stress is highly prevalent, therefore the need for stress-reducingmethods is great. This randomized controlled trial compared the efficacy of self-help physical activity (PA), mindfulness meditation (MM), and heart rate variability biofeedback (HRV-BF) in reducing stress and its related symptoms. We randomly allocated 126 participants to PA, MM, or HRV-BF upon enrollment, of whom 76 agreed to participate. The interventions consisted of psycho-education and an introduction to the specific

Cardiac Coherence and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder in Combat Veterans

Gepubliceerd op: 01-06-2010

Background  • The  need  for  treatment  of  posttraumatic stress  disorder  (PTSD)  among  combat  veterans  returning from Afghanistan and Iraq is a growing concern. PTSD has been associated with reduced cardiac coherence (an indicator of heart rate variability [HRV]) and deficits in early stage information  processing  (attention  and  immediate  memory) in different studies. However, the co-occurrence of reduced coherence and cognition in combat veterans with PTSD has not been studied before. Primary Study Objective • A  pilot  study  was

Kan stress verminderen door het toepassen van hartcoherentie- onderzoek bij moeders van onrustige ki

Gepubliceerd op: 28-01-2009

Samenvatting: In dit onderzoek wordt de mens gezien als een dynamisch systeem, dat functioneert in voortdurend veranderende omstandigheden en streeft naar evenwicht. Binnen de grenzen van een evenwichtstoestand kan het zelfregulerend vermogen de mens in evenwicht houden, maar als de balans door nieuwe of ‘bedreigende’ omstandigheden verstoord raakt, moet een aanpassingsstrategie ontwikkeld en uitgevoerd worden voor herstel van het evenwicht. Deze toestand van onbalans wordt ‘stress’ genoemd en kan zowel op

The Impact of a New Emotional Self‑Management Program on Stress, Emotions, Heart Rate Variability, DHEA and Cortisol

Gepubliceerd op: 02-04-1998

This study examined the effects on healthy adults of a new emotional self-management program, consisting of two key techniques,"Cut-Thru" and the "Heart Lock-In." These techniques are designed to eliminate negative thought loops and promote sustained positive emotional states. The hypotheses were that training and practice in these techniques would yield lowered levels of stress and negative emotion and cortisol, while resulting in increased positive emotion and DHEA levels over a one-month period. In addition, we
