Transcript of "Ar 2008b Temperature Bfbk Physiol"

  1. 1. 2 Stress Management and Biofeedback Workshop Peripheral Temperature Biofeedback: Peripheral Body Heat Physiology , Instrumentation and Uses By: Dr. Ernesto Sh. Korenman, July / 2008 Dr. Ernesto Sh. Korenman, 2008 Body Temperature - Circulation 4 Heat Transference 3 • Body heat is transferred by conduction, convection, radiation, and evaporation. • During exercise, evaporation is the main means of heat loss; during rest, radiation is. • Humans maintain a constant internal temperature of 36.1 36. to 37.8 °C (97.0 to 100.0 °F). 37. (97. 100. • Higher humidity reduces potential evaporation and thus affects heat loss. Dr. Ernesto Sh. Korenman, 2008 Dr. Ernesto Sh. Korenman, 2008 6 5 Blood Vessels structure Regulation of Body Heat Dr. Ernesto Sh. Korenman, 2008 Dr. Ernesto Sh. Korenman, 2008 1

Korenman, 2008 Dr. Ernesto Sh. Korenman, 2008 10 The Hypothalamus and Hyperthermia 9 Peripheral Temperature Biofeedback: Instrumentation Dr. Ernesto Sh. Korenman, 2008 Dr. Ernesto Sh. Korenman, 2008 12 11 Standalone Biofeedback Thermometers Temperature Biofeedback Device • Indirect measurement of peripheral vasoconstriction. • Fast responding probe (0.5-1 sec enough). (0 • Resolution, (follow changes) than absolute Dr. Ernesto Sh. Korenman, 2008 temperature accuracy (0.01-1 oF). (0 01- Dr. Ernesto Sh. Korenman, 2008 2
  3. 3. 14 13 Basic, (E. Green), Temperature Training 1. Discuss the rationale and answer questions to patient. 2. Explain biofeedback machine. 3. Apply the thermistor. Peripheral Temperature Biofeedback: Basic Methodology 4. At least 15 min of relaxation followed by warming visualization (for instance heaviness and warmth autogenic exercises). 5. Visualize desired changes with closed eyes. 6. Expose patient to temperature feedback (sometimes with autogenic affirmations. Dr. Ernesto Sh. Korenman, 2008 Dr. Ernesto Sh. Korenman, 2008 16 15 Temperature Biofeedback Session Sources of artifact • Outside temperature (baseline status) • Room temperature (sets lower limit) • Breeze (removes heat and evaporates sweat) • Probe contact and “blanketing effect” Dr. Ernesto Sh. Korenman, 2008 Dr. Ernesto Sh. Korenman, 2008 18 17 Some Uses of Temperature Biofeedback Finger thermal graph • General relaxation • Headaches • Hypertension Control • Raynaud’s Disease Dr. Ernesto Sh.
