[The 24-hour heart rate variability. An important predictor of sudden death after myocardial infarction].

Abstract

The activity of the cardiac autonomic nervous system can be estimated by measurement of beat to beat variations in heart rate-heart rate variability (HRV). In survivors after myocardial infarction, reduced 24-hour HRV, is an independent predictor of mortality/sudden cardiac death. The attenuated HRV is presumed to indicate reduced vagal function and… (More)
