PC difficulty : breathing

I just dont understand which keys or combinations of keys or keys sequence are required to be used when the heroine has troubles breathing...I am at the psychiatric warden. I completely failed the first breathing moment when she was in the cave of the police station, but then she didn't die, here she does...so I rerally need to know, what do i have to do?? I left this game aside a long time ago because I couldn't figure it out, and I just today realised this game had a steam forum. So i'm here asking for help! Thanks in advance for any provided!

I think it's left and right but not sure.
You have to keep the bar toward the center and not let it hit EITHER side.
Movie with Forward/Back and turn with the mouse.

It's been awhile since i played so i'm not positive.

I'll reinstall the game sometime over Winter Break and let you know.

I noticed the game is ALOT EASIER if you use a PS2/PS3 controller.
All those button sequences and the rapid left/right is a breeze.

This Guide on Gamefaqs might help you:

Skip to Chapter 13) Debriefing (Carla) section.

I copied it below. Hope this helps.

|                     ===================================                     |
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----
Lives
-----

 - None

------------
Bonus Points
------------

+10:  In a small hallway at the entrance to the archive basement

---------------------
Mental Health Actions
---------------------

+20:  Find the Kirsten file

-10:  Fail the breathing minigame (can happen multiple times)
-30:  Give up and let Tyler handle it later

----------------
Required Actions
----------------

 - Turn on the lights using the switch next to the metal door/gate
 - Enter the archive room.  You're then free to either find the file or just
   give up right away and let Tyler handle it.

---------
Game Over
---------

 - None (just be careful that you don't lose the breathing game too many times)

-----------
Walkthrough
-----------

You'll find a card worth ten bonus points up and to the left of your starting
position in a small hallway.  After that, head for the gate and use the light
switch on the wall to the right of it, then open the gate.  You'll be prompted
with some information about an upcoming minigame thing.

Carla's very afraid of small places, and as you'll soon find out, the archive
area is a little cramped.  You'll have to control Carla's breathing using the
buttons you normal use to move right and left. Keep the cursor thing in the
middle of the scale to avoid freaking out and running out of the archive area.
(Doing so will cost you ten sanity points (-10) every time.)

Enter the archive area and head straight for the wheel on the shelf on the
right side.  Use it, then slip through the space that opens up to the left of
it.  The next opening has two wheels - you'll need to use the one on the left
first, then the one on the right.  Head through the new gap and you'll find
yourself standing in a larger clearing with the computer terminal.

Unfortunately, the power supply isn't connected.  Turn to your left and go
through the gap in the shelves, then operate the wheel on the right in the next
clearing.  Operate the wheel on the left now, then walk into the gap between
the shelves to find a switch.  Flip it to restore power to the terminal, then
head back to the clearing by the terminal.

Operate the wheel closest to the terminal first, then go through the gap and
operate the first wheel you find.  Return to the terminal and use the wheel
closest to it again, then use the one to the right of it.  Head through the gap
between the shelves, then operate the wheel on the other side.  Inspect the
shelf on the right in this final gap to find the Kirsten file.  Return to the
terminal and insert the file to complete the chapter (+20).

[If this part proves too annoying for you to tolerate, simply let Carla's
 breathing meter get too high or too low.  She'll retreat to the hallway and
 crouch on the floor (-10), which will make the Tyler icon pop up in the
 upper-right of your screen.  Hit the Enter key to switch to him, and you'll be
 able to find the file as him later without doing the breathing thing.  Note,
 however, that giving up will cost Carla an additional thirty sanity points,
 and finding Carla curled up will also cost Tyler ten sanity points.]

Thanks mate for the help, I went back to the game and tried again, and I understood that I didn't have to click left/right constantly all the time as I believed, but I actually had to wait till it went to some extremes and hitting left/right would make it get back to the center! So now that is solved, but I'm still stuck, because I can't find for the love of god how do i move left/right since those keys are being used...which makes me run into the asylum bars at the end of the corridor and unable to get through...once i didm nage to pass, don't know how, but then i was again stuck because i couldn't control carla to get to what seemed to be a door...Do you still remember how you moved while "breathing"?

Ah, the asylum level was annoying when all the subjects running around.

Then you got to HOLD your breath as they walk by.
That level make takes some time, but in the end isn't too hard.

Yeah, if you have any USB Controller, PS2/PS3 or 360, THAT will be a lot easier to use then Keyboard.

If you can, try that.

I passed that level on the first try but my wife had a lot of trouble. Now when she replays it she passes me the gamepad. It's just one of those things that either you get right away or will have to teach yourself. I struggled with other parts of the game and had to train myself with practice.

I do highly recommend buying a gamepad. It doesn't have to be an expensive Xbox controller - any $10 dual analog will increase the immersion of this game 100 times.

But I digress - the trick for me was to just keep the indicator in the centre of the bar. Don't worry too much about the actual breathing. Just keep that line in the center while you walk around. Hopefully the other activities in this game helped prepare you for following one set of actions while paying attention to whatever was going on in the background.

You could also try playing on easy. That makes all the action sequences a little simpler. No shame at all in playing on easy.

So in the end i managed to find the solution exactly one year later

I tried in between with a ps2 controller but it wouldn't want to setup the other half of the controls.

So in the end i found out that if i turned the mouse WHILE right clicking it would turn the character to face anew direction. As soon as i figured that out it worked like a charm

Thanks again everyone who helped me here
