BIOFEEDBACK

n. the therapeutic approach of using an external device in order to consciously monitor changes in vital signs such as breathing, heart rate, and blood pressure. Guided by these monitoring devices, a patient is trained to control these functions voluntarily. Also called sensory feedback.
