  • Heart rate variability (HRV) is a known risk factor for mortality in both healthy and patient populations. [...] Key Method Data from studies published after the 1996 Task Force report (i.e., between January 1997 and September 2008) and reporting short-term measures of HRV obtained in normally healthy individuals were collated and factors underlying discrepant values were identified. Forty-four studies met the pre-set inclusion criteria involving 21,438 participants. Values for short-term HRV measures from the…Expand Abstract
