However, most previous studies were conducted by single-dose administration to adults; and, therefore, the long-term effect of nasal OT on ASD patients and its effect on children remain(More)
BACKGROUND There is considerable evidence that impaired autonomic control may be associated with the etiology of coronary artery disease (CAD). We hypothesized that the autonomic imbalance as assessed by measuring heart rate variability (HRV) and biological parameters before and after coronary angiography (CAG) may predict the presence of CAD.

BACKGROUND We investigated the relationship between the severity and presence of coronary artery disease (CAD) and a difference in systolic and diastolic blood pressure (SBP and DBP) between arms or between lower limbs. METHODS We enrolled 277 patients who underwent coronary angiography. We calculated the absolute (|right BP (rt. BP) - left BP (lt. BP)|)(More)
