The purpose of this study was to examine the feasibility of an intervention that included heart rate variability (HRV) biofeedback and walking with pulse oximetry feedback to improve functioning and quality of life for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). [...] Key Method Twenty patients with COPD participated in 5 weekly sessions of HRV biofeedback and 4 weekly sessions of walking practice with oximetry feedback, with instructions for daily home practice.Expand
Heart rate variability biofeedback in chronic disease management: a systematic review.
TLDR
HRVB could be effective in managing patients with chronic diseases and improvements in clinical outcomes co-occurred with improvements in heart rate variability, suggesting possible regulatory effect of HRVB on autonomic function. Expand
The Effects of Controlled Breathing during Pulmonary Rehabilitation in Patients with COPD
TLDR
In patients with COPD undergoing a pulmonary rehabilitation program, controlled breathing using respiratory biofeedback has no effect on exercise capacity, pulmonary function, quality of life or cardiac autonomic function. Expand
Deep breathing heart rate variability is associated with respiratory muscle weakness in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
TLDR
Cardiac autonomic control of heart rate was associated with inspiratory muscle weakness in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and future research applications of respiratory muscle training may bring to light a potentially valuable target for rehabilitation. Expand
A Brief Review and Clinical Application of Heart Rate Variability Biofeedback in Sports, Exercise, and Rehabilitation Medicine
TLDR
It is important for the sports and exercise physician to have an understanding of the therapeutic use of HRV modulation, both in the reduction of stress and in the management of chronic disease. Expand
Anxiety is associated with diminished exercise performance and quality of life in severe emphysema: a cross-sectional study
TLDR
In clinically stable patients with moderate to severe emphysema, anxiety is associated with worse exercise performance, quality of life and shortness of breath, after accounting for the influence of demographic and physiologic factors known to affect these outcomes. Expand
The Effect of a Single Episode of Short Duration Heart Rate Variability Biofeedback on Measures of Anxiety and Relaxation States
This study examines the acute effect of heart rate variability (HRV) biofeedback on anxiety and relaxation states. Eighteen healthy males exposed to work-related stress were randomized into an HRVExpand
The effect of short duration heart rate variability (HRV) biofeedback on cognitive performance during laboratory induced cognitive stress
The aim of this study was to examine the effect of 10 minutes of heart rate variability (HRV) biofeedback on cognitive performance and affect scores during induced stress. Eighteen healthy maleExpand
Heart rate variability biofeedback as a behavioral neurocardiac intervention to enhance vagal heart rate control.
TLDR
A novel behavioral neurocardiac intervention, HRV biofeedback, can augment vagal HR regulation while facilitating psychological adjustment to CHD. Expand
The Application of Heart Rate Variability Biofeedback to Medical and Mental Health Disorders
TLDR
Outcome studies on HRVB offers promising therapeutic benefit for any medical or mental health disorder known to be accompanied by autonomic nervous system dysregulation, and the authors review outcome studies on a sampling of common disorders. Expand
Effectiveness of Biofeedback in Improving Heart Rate Variability Recovery Following Stress

TLDR
A significant improvement in FEV1 and mean forced expiratory flow during the middle half of forced vital capacity (FVC) for the biofeedback group, while the control group showed no change. Expand
Decreased heart rate variability in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
TLDR
It is concluded that patients with COPD have abnormalities of ANS function, with in particular a depressed HRV response to sympathetic and vagal stimuli. Expand

TLDR
This study showed short-term increases in FEV1 and FVC in COPD patients practicing BPT in addition to respiratory rehabilitation, in comparison with controls. Expand
Effects of aging and of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease on RR interval variability.
TLDR
This study indicates that in patients with COPD, sympathetic excitatory modulation of the SA node is depressed, and the index beta, which provides an assessment of the gain of respiratory modulation of RR interval variability is significantly reduced in patients, as compared to healthy subjects of similar age.

Continuous positive airway pressure normalizes cardiac autonomic and hemodynamic responses to a laboratory stressor in apneic patients.
TLDR
CPAP normalizes contractility, increases cardiac vagal tone, and changes hemodynamic regulation from being resistance dominated to being cardiac dominated after 1 week of treatment, indicating that many of the indicators of poor cardiac functioning in apnea patients are improved. Expand

TLDR
The St. George's Respiratory Questionnaire is a valid measure of impaired health in diseases of chronic airflow limitation that is repeatable and sensitive andMultivariate analysis demonstrated that SGRQ scores summed a number of areas of disease activity. Expand
Heart Rate Variability Reflects Severity of COPD in PiZ α1-Antitrypsin Deficiency
TLDR
Indexes of HRV appear to reflect severity and may have prognostic value in COPD patients, and PiZ α 1 -antitrypsin deficiency COPD is associated with abnormal cardiac autonomic modulation. Expand

TLDR
Preliminary uncontrolled data suggest that the Smetankin protocol warrants further evaluation as a nonpharmacological psychophysiological treatment for this condition, although these data could not definitively prove that the method is effective. Expand
Effects of breathing retraining in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
TLDR
Data suggest that BRT increases exercise performance in subjects with severe COPD, and respiratory rate during exercise decreased and tidal volume and PaO2 during exercise increased. Expand

TLDR
High and low target-frequency oscillation amplitudes at specific frequencies could be explained by resonance among various oscillatory processes in the cardiovascular system and changes in heart rate oscillations could not be completely explained by changes in breathing. Expand
