Panic Attack Survey for Emergency Room Support

PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 29 December 2008

Hi Members,

I'm a former sufferer of panic attacks. I am in my final year of graduate studies in Social Work. My practicum is at Floyd Memorial Hospital in New Albany,IN. The project I'm working on is to implement a brief breathing retraining-biofeedback (with capnometry) intervention for patients who admit to the emergency room experiencing a panic attack.  An accredited and state licensed  social worker trained in biofeedback methods would provide a brief intervention to panic attack victims.


I would like for you to tell me what you didn't like or did like about your experience with the doctor in the emergency room. Was he/she helpful or not? Please explain. How many times have you used the ER for panic attack? Do you know much about biofeedback/breathing retraining interventions?

Would it have been helpful to have an experienced social worker (LCSW) trained in breating techniques to help you through your experience? She or he would then educate you about panic attacks and provide you with information about biofeedback and other methods of relaxation, as well as talk to you about the need to see your physician and/or psychologist.

Also, it has been noted by several researchers that if panic attack is not diagnosed by a physician early on that patients are significantly open to experiencing a major depressive episode...did this happen to you?

What has helped you the most in handling panic attacks? All of your information is names please. Your information will help me develop an intervention for panic victims in the emergency room at FMH.

Thanks for your time.  you can send responses back to me at This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

News, I'd be interested in learning the outcome of the biofeedback project. I tried biofeedback about 30 years ago out in Los Angeles,to no avail, but there may have been large changes in the interim. Every little bit helps, as you probably know. Thanks.

Anxiety & Depression
Written by Sparkle on November 29, 2009

I believe that anxiety and depression cannot be cured by medication, but it only suppresses the symptoms of the problem, and it doesn't get to the root of the actual problem. How our bodies respond is a direct reaction from our thought process. Fears, anxieties, and depression is a direct result from the wrong thoughts which goes way deeper than just this physical realm.

For an uplifting voice, please contact me. I am here to listen. The first 30 minutes is free and you decide if you want to continue on to the next step of getting your life back. You can only gain by making this phone call.
Please contact me: This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it (email contact info.)
Give me a little of information about yourself and lets set our first appointment!

I look forward to hearing from you.
