Summary

Patients who have had lung cancer and are experiencing anxiety and possibly shortness of breath may be eligible to participate in the this study.

If you take part in this study, you will be randomized into one of the three study groups described below. Randomization means that you are put into a group by chance. It is like flipping a coin. You will have an equal chance of being placed in any group.

Group A: Will receive a device that will gradually slow down breathing rate. It plays music through headphones and has a sensor that attaches to your abdomen or chest. You will be asked to use it once per day for 15 minutes, at least 5 days per week, for 12 weeks.
Group B: Will receive a device that will gradually slow down breathing rate. It plays music through headphones and has a sensor that attaches to your abdomen or chest. You will be asked to use it twice per day for 15 minutes, at least 5 days per week, for 12 weeks.
Group C: Will receive a device that will leave your breathing rate at a similar rate that you usually breathe. It plays chimes through headphones and has a sensor that attaches to your abdomen or chest. You will be asked to use it once per day for 15 minutes, at least 5 days a week for 12 weeks.

Study participation lasts about 12 weeks.
