The aim of our study was to employ novel nonlinear synchronization approaches as a tool to detect baroreflex impairment in young patients with subclinical autonomic dysfunction in Type 1 diabetes mellitus (DM) and compare them to standard linear baroreflex sensitivity (BRS) methods. We recorded beat-to-beat pulse interval (PI) and systolic blood pressure(More)
The purpose of this paper is to investigate the effect of orthostatic challenge on recurrence plot based complexity measures of heart rate and blood pressure variability (HRV and BPV). HRV and BPV complexities were assessed in 28 healthy subjects over 15 min in the supine and standing positions. The complexity of HRV and BPV was assessed based on recurrence(More)
OBJECTIVE Although the emotion regulatory difficulties in patients with major depressive disorder (MDD) are predicted to associate with impaired cardiovascular autonomic regulation, the changes of cardiac vagal regulation MDD are incompletely understood. The aim of the study was to evaluate the respiratory sinus arrhythmia (as an index of cardiac vagal(More)
UNLABELLED We aimed to study short-term heart rate variability (HRV) as an index of cardiac autonomic control in never-treated major depressive disorder (MDD) adolescent patients using linear and nonlinear analysis. METHODS We have examined 20 MDD girls and 20 healthy age-matched girls at the age of 15 to 18yr. The ECG was recorded in three positions: the(More)
Cardiovascular control acts over multiple time scales, which introduces a significant amount of complexity to heart rate and blood pressure time series. Multiscale entropy (MSE) analysis has been developed to quantify the complexity of a time series over multiple time scales. In previous studies, MSE analyses identified impaired cardiovascular control and(More)
The autonomic nervous system plays an important role in a wide range of visceral-somatic and mental diseases. Cardiac parameters, particularly heart rate as a physiological measure, are extremely sensitive to autonomic influences. Normally, the activities of the sympathetic and parasympathetic branches of the autonomic nervous system are in dynamic balance(More)
Time irreversibility is a characteristic feature of non-equilibrium, complex systems such as the cardiovascular control mediated by the autonomic nervous system (ANS). Time irreversibility analysis of heart rate variability (HRV) and blood pressure variability (BPV) represents a new approach to assess cardiovascular regulatory mechanisms. The aim of this(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to test whether a new heart rate variability (HRV) complexity measure, the Point Correlation Dimension (PD2i), provides diagnostic information regarding early subclinical autonomic dysfunction in diabetes mellitus (DM). We tested the ability of PD2i to detect diabetic autonomic neuropathy (DAN) in asymptomatic young DM(More)
Baroreflex function is usually assessed from spontaneous oscillations of blood pressure (BP) and cardiac RR interval assuming a unidirectional influence from BP to RR. However, the interaction of BP and RR is bidirectional—RR also influences BP. Novel methods based on the concept of Granger causality were recently developed for separate analysis of feedback(More)
Obesity during adulthood has been associated with cardiovascular disease, but its adverse effects during adolescence are less well established. The aim of this study was to probe cardiovascular control in obese adolescence by studying causal coherence between cardiovascular variables. Sixty minutes of resting ECG and finger blood pressure were recorded in(More)
