New Citations | Energy Drinks, Uninostril Breathing, Sub-Vocal Speech

Energy Drinks and Blood Pressure: Energy drinks are used to increase energy in the body through various physiologic means. Bashir Uddin, Mohiuddin Ahmad, and Mohd Abdur Rashid measured blood pressure changes as a result of energy drink consumption. Twelve adult male participants lay down after each consumed an energy drink. Their ECGs were then  recorded for […]

New Citations | Fibromyalgia, Carbon Dioxide, and Inequality

SET and Fibromyalgia: A research group created a process called “Systolic Extinction Training” (SET) which can reset the abnormal relationship between blood pressure (BP) and pain in fibromyalgia and chronic pain patients. To test the validity of their process, they used a BIOPAC MP150 system with ECG100C amplifier module while AcqKnowledge software stored and calculated […]

New Citations—Conditioned Stimuli, Postmenopause, and Literature

Conditioned Stimuli and Fear: Conditioned stimuli used to elicit overt behavior is a common experimental paradigm in animals, but not with humans. Researchers at the University of Zurich thus tested whether Heart Period Responses (HPR) and conditioned stimuli are a suitable complement to SCR when testing fear memory with humans. Subjects’ psychophysiological data was recorded using […]

New Citation | PO and COPD, Sternocleidomastoid Muscle, and Hypertension

Pulse Oximetry and COPD: A recent study performed by Salim S. Al-Ani compared Pulse Oximetry levels in healthy adults and in a sample of individuals with severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in order to better understand the relation among PO, age, and gender in healthy adults. Salim used a BIOPAC MP150 with the OXY100E, RSP100C, […]
