for observing, evaluating, and learning breathing behavior

A break-through product! The ultimate in breathing education!

Did you know that allocation of carbon dioxide, through breathing, directly regulates
body pH, electrolyte balance, blood distribution, hemoglobin chemistry, and kidney function?


breathing training!

Detect bad breathing and learn good breathing with the CapnoTrainer®.

Learned OVERBREATHING BEHAVIOR leads to exhaling too much CO2, resulting in extracellular alkalinity.
Shifts in pH may account for “unexplained” symptoms, psychological changes, effects of stress, and performance deficits.

Use the CapnoTrainer® for observing, identifying, teaching, and learning new breathing behavioral patterns.
  • 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, counselor, or clinician use the CapnoTrainer® as a teaching and learning 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.


The CapnoTrainer® is an educational instrument designed for learning good breathing behavior, and is not intended for diagnosis and/or treatment of symptoms and deficits.

Learned breathing behaviors may trigger, exacerbate, perpetuate, or a wide variety of symptoms, deficits, and 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.

Overbreathing behavior (resulting in CO2 deficit), may trigger or exacerbate acute and chronic conditions in predisposed individuals:

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 software runs on PC computers and operates within Windows 98 (second edition), Millennium, 2000, NT, XP, Vista, & Seven 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)
  • Multiple heart wave frequencies (HF/LF/VLF)
  • Frequency analysis of heart rate variability (HRV DFT)
  • Differential autonomic nervous system measurements
