INTRODUCTION The early phase of essential hypertension has been associated with changes in cardiovascular regulation caused by imbalance in some parts of autonomic nervous system. Autonomic effect of various stimuli on haemodynamic variables is usually tested by changes in blood pressure (BP) and/or heart rate (HR). It is known that increased sympathetic(More)
Autonomic effect of various stimuli on haemodynamic variables is usually tested by changes in blood pressure (BP) and/or heart rate (HR). It is known that increased sympathetic drive of ventricles can interfere with repolarization process. This study was focused on reactive changes of maximal spatial T vector (sTmax), R-R and QTc intervals, in relation to(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the association between long-term exposure to high-level urban traffic noise and blood pressure in preschool children. DESIGN Normotensive children (n = 1542), aged 3-7 years and attending kindergartens, had their blood pressures and heart rate measured. Mean values of these circulatory variables were related to 24-h equivalent(More)
The reactions of heart rate (HR), systolic (sBP) and diastolic (dBP) blood pressure were studied in response to passive head-up tilting (successively to +45 degrees and +90 degrees) in a group of 83 full-term, 1- to 7-day-old newborns who were quiet and awake. A significant mean increase of HR was noted for the whole group, from 121 +/- 14 beats/min to 124(More)
There is virtually no information on spontaneous variability of ECG body surface potential maps (BSPMs) and on dynamics of their reactive changes in healthy subjects. This study evaluated quantitatively the depolarization (QRS) and repolarization (QRST) parameters derived from the respective integral BSPMs, constructed beat-to-beat, from continual body(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the reflection of psychoemotional stress in the body surface potential distribution as documented by isointegral maps of cardiac activation and recovery. In 72 young men (18.3+/- 7.3 y.) with no cardiovascular history body surface potential maps (BSPMs) at rest and during the test of mental arithmetic were(More)
