Heart rate variability: for real doctors. Translation from the Russian version of the book, published at Kharkiv, 2010, 131 p.
The basics and practice of the clinical use of the technology of heart rate variability are outlined for doctors of all specialties and students of medical faculties of universities.
10. About transients and a special place of bio-adaptive control
Bioadaptive control is a powerful tool for the active regulation of the psychophysiological state of a person by continuously measuring a periodically changing physiological indicator that he does not control and regularly transforms into an output passive signal in a sensory and / or symbolic form that is not only perceived, but also it is controlled by the type of biofeedback.
Based on HRV technology, many bioadaptive control systems have been built, which have found application in various fields of human activity. Including in clinical practice to improve the health of a sick person.
All these systems based on the HRV technology are built in approximately the same way. The patient registers the heart rate, which is determined based on which the parameters of HRV are presented on a computer monitor. The patient has the ability, through tracking these indicators, psychophysiologically to intervene in their internal state so that they change in a given direction and/or take the set values, which, as a rule, correspond to its norm for these conditions.
Bioadaptive management in clinical practice can be used in a “pure” form as a therapeutic tool aimed at restoring the patient’s psychophysiological state, as well as a way to control the effectiveness and improve the efficiency of treatment results by others, including using pharmacological drugs.
