Do the scores in the graph really matter?

Basically we advise to not pay too much attention to the trial scores. The scores are known to go up and down a lot. There are many factors that influence the time one can hold his breath (even with people that do not suffer from CHV!). For that reason one should not value the trial scores too much. As long as the overall average goes up slowly (this also has it's ups and downs by the way!), the tolerance of the respiratory center for CO2 is increased and CO2 buffers are replenished. And that is what it is all about!

It is a different matter, if you experience no progress at all, the graph remains on the same level all the time and you experience no improvement in the symptoms at all. If that is the case, chances are that the cause of your CHV is still around. In those cases the scores can become significant, because they can be a clear indication of the underlying cause of your CHV. The graph can then be used to determine this cause.

So, basically we pay not too much attention to the scores, but only to the graph showing our average. But if you seem to be stuck for a long period of time, try to find out when the exercises go well and when they do not. Possibly you can determine one (or more) cause(s) of your CHV.

ps. mind you that stress also has a big impact on the scores. Stress in the nervous system makes it harder for the respiratory center to change it's tolerance for CO2.
