Heart rate variability biofeedback: effects of age on heart rate variability, baroreflex gain, and asthma.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES To present additional analysis of data from a previously published study showing that biofeedback training to increase heart rate variability (HRV) can be an effective component in asthma treatment. HRV and intervention-related changes in HRV are negatively correlated with age. Here we assess the effects of age on biofeedback effects for asthma… (More)
