Tracking Physiological Changes in Voluntary Inhalation and Breath-hold Activity in Healthy Adults
This research will be performed in English language. Objective of this research is to record raw data signals (EEG or GSR or both) of inhalation and breath hold activity in healthy adults. Protocol will be based on our preliminary research here. Ethics committee approval is not required as we are dealing with healthy subjects and our intervention is non-invasive. The objective of this research is to provide clear observation of this phenomena without any assumptions, and without providingany explanation or hypothesis. This is usually called ambulatory recordings, data sets, or raw data. We will publish data, clearly labelled and uploaded in mat, xls, spss files, so that other researchers can provide their own interpretations of this phenomena by citing our paper. Our best publication target is journal NeuroImage, but if that fails we will publish in a more accessible journal, and if that fails we will simply publish findings in scientific conference (local or abroad). There is also a possibility to publish in JOVE (a first pubmed indexed video research portal). Breathing Labs handles all costs related to this research and provides mentoring and custom programming when required. Scope of the research is: measuring approximately 20-30 people in a said protocol which results approximately in 5 hours of measurement (+2 hours to set up device and calibrate the device). This measurement could be completed in one day. Then we will do approximately 20 hours of signal processing, preferably in matlab. Researcher will be printed as the lead author if he/she will lead the project to finish (with our guidance). If the researcher drops out of project before completion, he/she will be one of the following authors (not the first author). This project should be interesting to someone who wants to observe physiological changes in realtime. This research will be most beneficial to someone who wishes to build their habilitation score in academic/research career. To get started please send your CV to [email protected]
Using breathing toys to provide feedback in performing breathing exercises in kids 5-10 years old in clinical environment
This research can be performed in Slovene, or English language. The objective of this research is to write a short case report of breathing toys use at SBI Izola hospital and publish it in local journal, such as Medicinski Razgledi, Zdravniski vestnik, Revija Zdravstveno Varstvo, or any other foreign journal or conference. Ethics Committee approval for this research is already obtained. Scope of research will be observing approximately 14 or 30 days of use of said breathing toys at pediatrics department in SBI Izola, visiting location several times, conducting interviews with medical doctors, physiotherapists, parents, and kids. Researcher will also help in guiding all personel at the location. Approximately 3-4 visits to the research location are expected. Interviews with personnel can be performed remotely. Researcher will be printed as the lead author if he/she will lead the project to finish (with our guidance). If the researcher drops out of project before completion, he/she will be one of the following authors (not the first author). This project should be interesting to someone who wants experience in leading teams in clinical environment. This research will be most beneficial to someone who wishes to build business career in care-providing industry. Because of many people involved this research may take more time (1 year or more). Because of the commercial aspect of this research high ranking scientific journals cannot be reached. To get started please send your CV to [email protected]
Using breathing games to train kids with speech impairment and speech difficulties
This research has already been performed by our customers and we have access to many families that are willing to give interviews on this subject. Researchers role will be to conduct this interviews and write a case report in either slovene or any other language. Speech therapy is at the time the biggest market for Breathing Labs so we want to document this specific use case that was not our primary focus. Case study can be published in any medium either as a paper, a video report, a conference proceeding. Researcher will be printed as the lead author if he/she will lead the project to finish (with our guidance). If the researcher drops out of project before completion, he/she will be one of the following authors (not the first author). This project should be interesting to someone who wants to gain experience in health and parenting related communication. This research will be most beneficial to someone who wishes to work with kids in speech therapy, singing lessons, counselling. To get started please send your CV to [email protected]
How to run a research?
Breathing Labs provides ethics committee approval, helps in patients recruitment, provides relevant medical doctor as a coauthor, provides measuring equipment, computers and working environment. Additionally Breathing Labs covers all costs of conferences, publication fees for science articles. Published articles or conference proceedings are entered into the scholar library system so that researcher gains high scores for successful research or pedagogic habilitation. Researcher retains all moral rights of his work. There is no financial award for research work. Breathing Labs’ research and development group aims to attract students, postdoc researchers and freelance researchers into conducting cutting edge research in the field of respiration/breathing. We explore the breathing pattern in humans, its dependence on external stimuli and its influence on cognitive function, autonomic nervous system and overall health.
Who can apply?
Undergraduate students or masters/PhD students from field of medical or other natural sciences. Applicants must speak English fluently. Experience in Matlab, or R, or SPSS, or Excel/googlesheets is required.

"Keep using the pursed-lip breathing until the breathless feeling goes away. Rest In between breaths if you feel Dizzy. Give sips of room temperature water."
American Lung Association
“Pursed-lip breathing attempts to prolong active expiration through half-opened lips, thus helping to prevent airway collapse. Compared with spontaneous breathing, pursed-lip breathing reduces respiratory rate, dyspnea, and PaCO2, while improving tidal volume and oxygen saturation in resting conditions."
American Thoracic Society
"Pursed lip breathing is one of the simplest ways to control shortness of breath. It provides a quick and easy way to slow your pace of breathing, making each breath more effective."
“Inhaling through the nose and exhaling through pursed lips makes breathing easier. Pursed-lip breathing can also help you regain control if you’re having trouble catching your breath. You can practice breathing this way anytime, anywhere. If you’re watching TV, practice during the commercials. Try to practice several times a day. Over time, pursed-lip breathing will feel natural.”
University of Minnesota Medical Center
“Pursed lip breathing helps you use less energy to breathe. It can help you relax. When you are short of breath, it helps you slow the pace of your breathing and can help you feel less short of breath."
University of Iowa Children's Hospital
