The deceleration capacity (DC) and acceleration capacity (AC) of heart rate are a pair of indices used for evaluating the autonomic nervous system (ANS). We assessed the role of heart rate asymmetry (HRA) in defining the relative performance of DC and AC using a mathematical model, which is able to generate a realistic RR interval (RRI) time series with(More)
Deceleration capacity (DC) of heart rate is a novel index for evaluating the activity of the autonomic nervous system (ANS). We examined whether controlling the inspiration/expiration (I/E) ratio benefits the DC analysis based on a model-generated RR interval (RRI) database. A cardiovascular system model was adopted to simulate RRI time series. The model(More)
Despite increased application of the deceleration capacity (DC) and acceleration capacity (AC) of heart rate indices as indicators of autonomic nervous system (ANS) function, it remains controversial as to whether they reflect cardiac sympathetic or vagal activity. We addressed this problem using a cardiovascular system model that allows analysis of DC and(More)
