1 Hour


Heart Rate Variability (HRV) is arguably the most important biometric, and, until recently, it was not accessible outside of hospitals or without the use of very expensive equipment.  Thanks to advances in technology we can now easily and affordably use HRV to help guide patient care, open the door to deeper patient insights & connections, and help our patients take self-responsibility and care outcomes to the next level.

Participants of this course can expect to learn the basics of Heart Rate Variability (HRV) and go a bit further. We will cover everything from the basics of what HRV is and the various associated metrics to the deep science behind HRV. Participants will learn how to administer HRV readings, the general interpretation of HRV results & trends, the general application of HRV in clinical practice, and how to explain HRV to patients. Participants will leave this course with a healthy understanding of HRV and how it may benefit their patients and their practice.

"I was hoping to see some of the data collected to see what difference the HRV made before and after care. I also don't believe some of the answers to the questions were listed in the handout."
