- Vasile Zoicas added an answer:9What distinguishes HRV Biofeedback from RSA Biofeedback, Respiratory Feedback and Heart Coherence Biofeedback?
The Terms HRV BF, Heart Coherence BF, Respiratory BF and RSA BF often seem to be used synonymously. However, different authors stress different aspects of the intervention. Furthermore, the best respiratory frequency to increase HRV (around 0,1 Hz) doesn't always seem to be the best frequency for HR/RSA Synchrony/Coherence. Are there clear distinctions?
And what is the difference in calling the respective Intervention "... Biofeedback" or "... Training"?
Thank you William. For now, CODESNA_HRV is intended for researchers wanting to have a complementary tool for HRV assessment that provides real times ANS dynamics and new markers, compared to existing tools. Later on, we'll check the opportunity to interface with commercial monitors in real time.Following

Has anyone used of heart rate variability biofeedback or monitoring in inpatient psychiatry?
Sorry to just find this question. We used HRV feedback in a day treatment setting for PTSD soldiers via a small individual biofeedback device called a Stress Eraser. Soldiers were willing to use the device and most liked it. The Stress Eraser is available as an OTC self-help device. Stress Eraser (http://www.stress.org/certified-product-stress-eraser/) and the Heart Math emWave both work fine.
Another modality that is synergistic is cranial electrical stimulation (CES) - see http://www.alpha-stim.com/. We found it invaluable for anxiety, pain, headache and insomnia.Following
