|Dysfunctional Breathing as a transdiagnostic mechanism underlying FD
|Wroclaw Medical University, Poland
|Prof. Joanna Rymaszewska
|We are looking for someone being interested in psychiatry, psychology and functional disorders and eager to learn. Due to the nature of the project, which includes working with patients, a medical or psychological background with some therapeutic knowledge and on hands patient experience would be preferred.
The main goal of this project is to study dysfunctional breathing patterns as underlying FD, in order to develop diagnostic instruments and new treatment options. We aim to study dysfunctional breathing patterns and their relation to different FD by establishing breathing patterns in patients with different types of symptoms with the use of objective sensor-based methods collected using wearables and psychometric and qualitative analyses of subjective self-report measures. We will study objective versus subjective symptoms, symptom perception, and identify risk factors for persistence of symptoms. The result will be used to develop Euro-pean recommendations covering diagnosis and treatment.
