Heart rate variability is an important marker for disease and adaptability. Dr. Jay Willes also provided practical tips about biometric data collected by wearables and explained their value.

Biometrics and Stress (Webinar with Dr. Jay Wiles follow-up + recording)

The HealthyLongevity.guide is delighted to announce another successful webinar and to share its follow-up article and recording. In this webinar, our speaker Dr. Jay T. Wiles, a co-founder & CSO at Hanu Health, covered some interesting points about using biometric data, like heart rate variability (HRV), as a marker for health and disease. The webinar was hosted by HealthyLongevity.guide content creators Agnieszka Szmitkowska, Ph.D., and Ehab Naim, MBA.

At the beginning of the webinar, Dr. Wiles explained the term psychophysiology. He mentioned that it is defined as the study of interconnection between physiological and psychological processes. He discussed the bidirectional relationship between the central and peripheral nervous systems and how the nervous system manages stress response. Afterward, Dr. Jay explained homeostasis (maintenance of the body's internal environment) and allostatic load (the cumulative burden of chronic stress and life events). He then described the autonomic nervous system (ANS), including the sympathetic and parasympathetic components, highlighting the functions of each and how they influence different bodily processes.

Our speaker defined HRV and gave examples of wearable devices that could measure the parameter. He then explained its importance as a marker for disease and adaptability. Dr. Jay highlighted that a reduced HRV is associated with disease and loss of adaptability. He revealed that HRV is a proxy for changes in the nervous system.

Dr. Wiles discussed the factors that modulate HRV function and how age, anxiety, depression, and obesity, among others, influence it. He explained the sources of HRV and revealed that it results from a dynamic process between regulatory mechanisms within the ANS. Examples of the mentioned mechanisms include the baroreflex mechanism (which regulates blood pressure within the cardiovascular system) and rhythmic changes in vascular tone. Dr. Wiles highlighted the relationship between the electrocardiogram and respiratory rate. He then provided practical tips about biometric data collected by wearables and explained their value.

Lastly, Dr. Wiles described HRV biofeedback (HRV-B), a term that explains how biology is used to provide feedback. HRV-B aims to improve one’s ability to self-regulate and enhance the quality of life and performance.  Dr. Jay explained Hanu Health HRV-B applications and discussed the practical applications of HRV as a recovery and stress indices.
