Use the CapnoTrainer® for detecting bad breathing behavior
and learning good breathing behavior.
*Pinpoint optimal breathing mechanics for acid-base balance.
*Discover the triggers for good and bad breathing patterns.
*See how thoughts, moods, and emotions are changed by breathing.
*Learn how mental and physical performance is altered by breathing.
*Evaluate the effects of breathing on learning, memory, and attention.
*See how breathing behavior and defensiveness may be related.
*Examine how pain, injury, discomfort, and breathing may be linked.
*Discover how breathing may be mediating unexplained symptoms.
*Test for anaerobic threshold during fitness training by monitoring CO2.
*Use breathing as a way of exploring awareness and consciousness.
*Learn what good and bad breathing behaviors feel like.
*Help people overcome their fears about breathing.
*Teach embracement through breathing and heart variability training.
*Learn to breathe intuitively, inside-out, rather than prescriptively, outside-in.
If you are an educator, trainer, coach, or therapist, the
CapnoTrainer® serves as an important adjunctive tool.
peak performance training, relaxation training, attention training, alertness training, meditation, patient education, stress management, childbirth training, motivational training, public speaking, learning enhancement, anxiety management (e.g., testing), anger management, mastering performance challenges (e.g., in aviation), athletic training, and breathing training of all kinds.
Overbreathing (CO2 deficit) can cause, trigger, or exacerbate physical symptoms, performance deficits, and psychological complaints.
shortness of breath, breathlessness, chest tightness/pressure, chest pain, feelings of suffocation, sweaty palms, cold hands, tingling of the skin, numbness, heart palpitations, irregular heart beat, anxiety, apprehension, emotional outbursts, stress, tenseness, fatigue, weakness, exhaustion, dry mouth, nausea, light-headedness, dizziness, fainting, black-out, blurred vision, confusion, disorientation, attention deficit, poor thinking, poor memory, poor concentration, impaired judgment, problem solving deficit, reduced pain threshold, headache, trembling, twitching, shivering, muscle tension, spasm, stiffness, abdominal cramps, and bloatedness.
In predisposed individuals, overbreathing (CO2 deficit) can
trigger or exacerbate acute and chronic conditions:
phobias (e.g., public speaking), migraine phenomena, hypertension, attention disorder, asthma attacks, angina attacks, heart attacks, panic attacks, hypoglycemia, ischemia (e.g., tissue hypoxia), depression, epileptic seizures, sexual dysfunction, sleep disturbances, allergy, irritable bowel syndrome, repetitive strain injury, and chronic fatigue.
The CapnoTrainer is an educational instrument designed for
enhancing performance through learning and teaching good breathing behavior.
It is not intended for medical diagnosis or treatment.
The software runs on PC computers and operates within Windows 98
(second edition), Millennium, 2000, NT, XP, and Vista environments.
Observe the following physiology:
CO2 waveform, in mmHg: airflow pattern
Breathing rhythmicity: breath holding, gasping
End-tidal CO2 (ETCO2), in mmHg: overbreathing
Coordinating breath: rate and depth
Breathing rate averages, in breaths per minute
Heart Rate, beat to beat calculations: heart rate variability
Breathing Heart Wave (BHW): parasympathetic tone
BHW amplitude, in beats per minute: degree of relaxation
Heart Rate (HR) averages (traditional measurement)
Advanced Option for HRV training:
Multiple heart wave frequencies (HF/LF/VLF)
Frequency analysis of heart rate variability (HRV DFT)
Differential autonomic nervous system measurements
