by Jay (Jack) Ginsberg, PhD
Seminar date: 10/2/2018

Description: Heart Rate Variability Biofeedback (HRVB) professionals regularly use quantitative and graphic methods of analysis of heart rate to understand the physiological and emotional status of pain patients. This presentation will use actual pre-post HRVB data from Veterans with chronic pain to illustrate how acquisition of the skill of self-regulation through HRVB affects heart rate patterns and screen displays and is related to reduced symptoms and improved level of function.
