[Effect of body posture on heart rate and cardiocirculatory parameters in stress--implications for frequency-adapted pacemaker systems].

Abstract

In order to study the influence of body position on cardiodynamics and the consequences for the regulation of rate-adaptive pacing, we examined variations of cardiocirculatory parameters with passive graded tilt from the erect to the supine position (90 degrees, 75 degrees, 60 degrees, 45 degrees, 30 degrees, 0 degrees) in 25 healthy subjects of both sexes… (More)
