I’m Dr. Henry Black. I’m a clinical professor of internal medicine at the New York University School of Medicine, a member of the Center for the Prevention of cardiovascular disease and currently president of the American Society of Hypertension. I want to talk to you about something that’s interested me since I would say 1995.

I was told about a device that would help individuals breathe in a certain way, that we knew from many many generations if not if not millennia, that would help relax people and reduce blood pressure. It seemed like an intriguing idea in that we don’t really have a good way, pharmacologically, to deal with the central nervous system. We do know the integration of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems through the brain is a critical manipulator and modulator and controller of blood pressure pulse and other things of that type.

Well, this device has come along. I’m very happy to report that I, my colleagues, the scientific advisory board, and others have helped direct the evaluation program such that this device is now FDA-approved for the management of high blood pressure.

Now there are two ways to use the device. One is the way I use it which is for complicated complex patients who have trouble getting to goal. The other way is for people who either don’t want to be on medication or want this device to supplement the medications I have given them to get to their blood pressure goals. I think this device, in addition to other nondrug therapies of lifestyle modifications, can make a big difference.

We know that salt restriction is important. We know that weight loss and exercise are, and in my opinion, getting the central nervous system to function properly. I also use this device in people who are not at goal, who are on multiple medications, who just need to get closer to where they want to be in a way that doesn’t require giving some pretty unpleasant drugs.

I’ve used this predominantly in that arena since I get resistant patients and complicated patients. I sort of collect them and that’s one of the places I have found can be extremely helpful. It’s easy to use. You’ve heard about how to do it, and how patients appreciate it.

I must have it at least a dozen people on it right now. All of them are pretty much following the regimen. It takes just a few minutes to learn to use it. You have to do this for about a month at least three or four times a week trying to get at least 40 minutes of therapeutic slow breathing time.

People are actually able to adopt this an enjoy the experience. Even though you’re doing it for only 15 minutes it works the whole day and it seems to work in various areas as well. So I’m very excited about this. I appreciate your attention thank you very much, Henry Black M.D
