Virtual Workshop Description

This workshop will provide an overview of the BCIA HRV Biofeedback certification exam ‎and how to study for it. A multidisciplinary faculty will provide a targeted review of key ‎knowledge areas assessed by the exam, including the meaning and correlates of high and ‎low HRV, physiological basis of biofeedback signals, instrumentation, HRV time- and ‎frequency-domain measurements, and normal values. This workshop is designed to ‎increase attendee confidence as they prepare for the BCIA exam, provide focused review ‎resources, and help them consolidate their learning.     ‎

Learning Objectives

In this workshop you will learn how:‎

  • BVP, ECG, and breathing sensors operate, how to perform tracking tests, and ‎how to identify and control artifacts
  • To explain the meaning of HRV, sources of HRV, factors that influence HRV, ‎correlates of low and normal HRV, and the benefits of increased HRV
  • To explain the physiological basis of HRV and the blood volume pulse (BVP), ‎electrocardiogram (ECG), and respirometer signals
  • To explain HRV time-domain and frequency-domain measurements
  • To evaluate when physiological measurements are normal and out-of-range

Target Audience

Professionals who want to add biofeedback to their practice, preparing for the BCIA HRV ‎Biofeedback certification exam, or who want a comprehensive review of their ‎knowledge.   ‎
