2014-07-23 21:11:11 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The specific aims of this study are:

1. To develop a breathing training protocol specifically designed to improve HRV and psychosocial functioning for postmenopausal women with depressive symptoms,

2. To examine the immediate effects of an 8-week breathing training program on HRV and psychosocial end points in postmenopausal women with depressive symptoms,

3. To examine the intermediate-term effects of an 8-week breathing training program on HRV and psychosocial end points in postmenopausal women with depressive symptoms, and

4. To determine whether the change in depressive symptoms with breathing training in postmenopausal women is associated with the change in HRV.
