In the present study, we examined two baroreflex sensitivity (BRS) issues that remain uncertain: the differences among diverse BRS assessment techniques and the association between BRS and vagal outflow. Accordingly, the electrocardiogram and non-invasive arterial pressure were recorded in 27 healthy subjects, during supine with and without controlled(More)
Time-varying autoregressive modeling may consider the driving noise variance as a constant. In this work, the properties of the autoregressive driving noise variance of heart rate variability, with different stationary physiological conditions (resting in supine and sitting; exercise) are obtained. The effect of constant variance consideration for ramp(More)
The cardiovascular and respiratory autonomic nervous regulation has been studied mainly by hemodynamic responses during different physical stressors. In this study, dynamics of autonomic response to an orthostatic challenge was investigated by hemodynamic variables and by diverse linear and nonlinear indices calculated from time series of beat-to-beat(More)
In this work, a graphical method to study cardiovascular coupling, called delta space plot analysis (DSPA), was introduced. The graphical representation is susceptible to be parameterized in shape and orientation. The usefulness of this technique was studied on cardiovascular data from patients with vasovagal syncope (VVS) and from controls. The study(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine maternal hemoglobin behavior during pregnancy for middle altitude residents and to compare it with that reported in other populations with or without iron supplementation. MATERIALS AND METHODS Hematological values from 227 pregnant women residing at 2 240 m altitude (Mexico City), with low obstetric and perinatal risk, and(More)
The gradual shift of cardiac autonomic regulation toward sympathetic predominance and vagal withdrawal during graded head-up tilt test in young controls has been demonstrated by parameters from symbolic dynamics obtained from short-term heart rate variability (HRV) analysis. In this study, the influence of gender and vasovagal syncope (VVS) on the autonomic(More)
Linear dynamic analysis of cardiovascular and respiratory time series was performed in healthy subjects with respect to gender by shifted short-term segments throughout a head-up tilt (HUT) test. Beat-to-beat intervals (BBI), systolic (SYS) and diastolic (DIA) blood pressure and respiratory interval (RESP) time series were acquired in 14 men and 15 women.(More)
