The Heart Sound Recorder, HSR, records the sound of the heart and creates a graph of that sound on the Heart Sound Recorder- a general wellness cardiac stress monitor.

The Principles of the Heart Sound Recorder, HSR

Certain types of heart stress can be monitored by visualizing the rate, rhythm and tone of the heart cycle. As a result, the heart’s reaction to certain stressors, i.e. chemical, nutritional and emotional, can be observed using this type of device. The response to informed suggestions can be monitored by observing changes of the frequency, ratio, amplitude and characteristics of the heart’s waveform. Comparison graphs can help determine the effectiveness of actions taken to improve the quality of life.

As with any wellness device, recommendations for lifestyle changes implied by using this technology should be undertaken only with the guidance of a licensed physician, therapist, or holistic healthcare practitioner. The findings from this device can be used to support, but should not be used in place of, sound medical therapies and recommendations.

Certain types of heart stress can be monitored by seeing the RATE, RHYTHM, and TONE of the heart cycle on the graph.
Your nervous system controls the RATE at which your heart beats. One side of your nervous system (sympathetic) manages your "fight or flight" response and can accelerate your heart rate. The other side (parasympathetic) manages your "rest and digest" response and can slow your heart rate. You need a healthy balance between the two.
The RHYTHM of your heart should show a specific work to rest ratio on the graph. Your heart should be resting twice as long as it is working. Observations are made to see if your heart is working too hard, or not working hard enough.
The TONE of your heart is referring to the strength of the ventricles as they push blood through your body. The height and the width of the 'lub dub' sound your hearts makes on the graph, shows how efficiently your hear is pushing blood through your body and refilling to prepare for the next cardiac cycle.
