OBJECTIVES This study sought to assess the efficacy of compression bandage of legs and abdomen in preventing hypotension and symptoms. BACKGROUND Progressive orthostatic hypotension can occur in elderly people during standing. METHODS Twenty-one patients (70 +/- 11 years) affected by symptomatic progressive orthostatic hypotension underwent 2 tilt-test(More)
The efficacy of sublingual verapamil (Verapabene, 40 mg) in acute control of high ventricular rate was assessed in 20 patients with chronic atrial fibrillation (AF) of ischemic origin (class NYHA II and III). The effect on irregularity of the rhythm was also studied using time domain parameters of heart rate variability. Four ECG recordings (before, and at(More)
UNLABELLED Syncope is defined as a transient, self-limited loss of consciousness. It is an important cause of morbidity in general population and the vasovagal syncope (VVS) is a common clinical problem which often leads to hospital admission, multiple office visits, and performing of many diagnostic tests. Head-up tilt table testing (HUTT) is a widely used(More)
Two methods to record preatrial activity, that is, sinus node potential are presented. One, during right atrial catheterization through an electrode catheter, and the other, using transthoracic recordings with a high amplification and derivation of the electric signals. The sinus node potential duration represents the sino-atrial conduction time (SACT), a(More)
Objective. The aim of this study is to define the normal range for average real variability (ARV) and to establish whether it can be considered as an additional cardiovascular risk factor. Methods. In this observational study, 110 treated hypertensive patients were included and admitted for antihypertensive treatment adjustment. Circadian blood pressure was(More)
The principal theoretical, methodological and clinical aspects of heart rate variability (HRV) analysis are reviewed. This method has been developed over the last 10 years as a useful noninvasive method of measuring the activity of the autonomic nervous system. The main components and the functioning of the computerized rhythm-analyzer system developed by(More)
The use of light reflection rheography (LRR) has reached an important level in the past few years. Using the originally construed and conceived RRL 001 device, we present the basic principles, the working technique and the limits of this method. We will use two magnetic amplifiers, one for the finger tip, which measures the capillary blood flow at this(More)
