As we previously reported, resonant frequency heart rate variability biofeedback increases baroreflex gain and peak expiratory flow in healthy individuals and has positive effects in treatment of asthma patients. [...] Key Result Here, we discuss the origin of the resonance phenomenon, describe our procedure for determining an individual's resonant frequency, and report data from 32 adult asthma patients and 24 healthy adult subjects, showing a negative relationship between resonant frequency and height, and a…Expand

A Practical Guide to Resonance Frequency Assessment for Heart Rate Variability Biofeedback
TLDR
The authors critically assess the minimum epochs required to measure key HRV indices, resonance frequency test-retest reliability, and whether rhythmic skeletal muscle tension can replace slow paced breathing in resonance frequency assessment. Expand
Heart Rate and Breathing Are Not Always in Phase During Resonance Frequency Breathing
For many years it has been an axiom among practitioners of heart rate variability biofeedback that heart rate and breathing vary in phase with each other when people do resonance frequency breathing.Expand

  • 2008
TLDR
Two methods for automatic analysis and characterization of heart rate variability resonance in real-time have been presented and the proposed methods were tested on a 45-min record from a chanting session and compared with manually annotated and measured periods. Expand
Efficacy of Paced Breathing at the Low-frequency Peak on Heart Rate Variability and Baroreflex Sensitivity
TLDR
The results suggest that paced breathing at the peak frequency of the LF component enhanced the autonomic baroreflex function and assessment ofThe LF-peak may provide more accurate information on resonance frequency for paced breathing during HRV biofeedback. Expand
The Investigation and Clinical Significance of Resonance in the Heart Rate and Vascular Tone Baroreflexes
TLDR
This paper characterizes the phenomenon of resonances in the CVS using a classic engineering approach and the ability to employ these resonances for clinical applications and posit that these baroreflex resonances are integral to the vast autonomic variability that underlies efficient and effective homeostatic reflexes.

Heart rate variability biofeedback: effects of age on heart rate variability, baroreflex gain, and asthma.
TLDR
Age-related attenuation of biofeedback effects on cardiovascular variability does not diminish the usefulness of the method for treating asthma among older patients. Expand
Loss of Breathing Modulation of Heart Rate Variability in Patients with Recent and Long Standing Diabetes Mellitus Type II
TLDR
The influence of DM on the breathing modulation of the heart rate is evaluated by analyzing in the frequency domain heart interbeat interval (IBI) records obtained from recently diagnosed, 15 long standing DM patients, and 30 control subjects during standardized clinical tests of controlled breathing.

Acute effects of resonance frequency breathing on cardiovascular regulation
TLDR
Breathing at either RF or RF + 1 has similar hemodynamic and sympatho‐inhibitory effects in healthy men and induced similar changes in HR and HR variability. Expand
The Impact of Resonance Frequency Breathing on Measures of Heart Rate Variability, Blood Pressure, and Mood
TLDR
RF breathing appears to play an important role in the positive effect HRVB has on measures of HRV, and is hypothesized to be a pathway through which biofeedback improves HRV. Expand

TLDR
An acute HRV BFB influenced the reduction in motoneuron excitability at resting condition and demonstrated lower proportion of activated motor neurons from 1a afferents. Expand
