- The Effects of Specific Respiratory Rates on Heart Rate and Heart Rate Variability. Song, Hye-Sue; Lehrer, Paul M. // Applied Psychophysiology & Biofeedback;Mar2003, Vol. 28 Issue 1, p13
In this study respiratory rates of 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, and 14 breaths per minute were employed to investigate the effects of these rates on heart rate variability (HRV). Data were collected 16 times at each respiratory rate on 3 female volunteers, and 12 times on 2 female volunteers. Although...

- Adhesive patch monitor superior to Holter for prolonged arrhythmia tracking. // Cardiology Today;Feb2014, Vol. 17 Issue 2, p27
The article discusses research by Paddy M. Barrett et al and published in a 2014 issue of the "American Journal of Medicine," which found that adhesive patch monitor worn on the chest detected more arrhythmia events than a Holter monitor.
- Plasticity of Heart Rate Modulation at Different Paced Respiration Frequencies in Young Adults. Trubachev, V.; Gorbunov, A.; Trubacheva, V.; Nemtseva, M.; Ogorodnikova, M. // Neuroscience & Behavioral Physiology;Sep2015, Vol. 45 Issue 7, p743
Studies of 29 21-year-old male and female subjects addressed the plasticity of slow modulation of heart rate during paced respiration at 4-10 cycles/min using traces of duration 160 and 90 sec. The results demonstrated that the power spectra of subjects' RR intervals were dominated by the...
- sleep technologist. // Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary;2005, p2014
A definition of the term "sleep technologist" is presented. It refers to a person who monitors night-time sleep patterns during a formal sleep test. A sleep technologist makes audiovisual recordings and noninvasive records of the patient's breathing, oxygenation, electrical brain activity, heart...
- Giving birth to hope: group work for women with postnatal depression. Parkinson, Karin // Healthcare Counselling & Psychotherapy Journal;Jul2009, Vol. 9 Issue 3, p25
The article reports on the development of group therapy in Great Britain. It suggests that group therapy plays a significant role in treating women suffering from postnatal depression. It explains that this therapy is more effective than the guidelines unveiled by the National Institute for...
