Available for download after purchase
This online webinar series provides an introduction to the practical application and use of popular peripheral biofeedback modalities. The biosignals that will be discussed in the series are Respiration, Heart Rate (from blood volume pulse and electrocardiogram), Heart Rate Variability, Skin Conductance (also called Galvanic Skin Response), Skin Temperature, Surface Electromyography (SEMG), and Passive Hemoencephalography (pIR HEG). A general overview of the physiological basis for each peripheral measurement will be provided using the BioGraph Infiniti software and Thought Technology hardware. Participants will directly see how the sensors are applied to the subject, what typical signals and false values (also called artifacts) look like, and how the different modalities work in conjunction with audio and visual multimedia biofeedback displays.
Part 1 focuses on Respiration, Heart Rate and Heart Rate Variability;
Part 2 continues with Heart Rate Variability, and introduces Skin Conductance and Temperature;
Part 3 examines Surface Electromyography and Passive Hemoencephalography (pIR HEG).
Professionals who complete this webinar will:
- Describe the clinical utility of Respiration, Heart Rate, Heart Rate Variability.
- Demonstrate the proper sensor and electrode application for each modality, in order to collect representative data.
- Recognize the waveform of each peripheral biofeedback modality.
- Recognize and minimize generating fake signals.
- Use of different multimedia biofeedback that maximizes the success for each type of peripheral biofeedback.
Prerequisites: None. Advance preparation is not required.
