BackgroundHeart rate variability (HRV) has been used to assess autonomic dysfunction since the beginning of the HIV epidemic. Although autonomic failure was commonly detected in HIV and AIDS patients prior to the advent of antiretroviral therapy (ART), the effect of HIV on HRV in the current era of widespread ART availability is more ambiguous.MethodsA systematic search and review was conducted on cross-sectional observational and case–control studies published in the era of ART (1996–2015… Expand
Association of virological control and antiretroviral therapy with a cardiovascular autonomic balance in HIV
TLDR
It was concluded that HIV patients who did not use ART showed greater sympathetic activity, lower parasympathetic response, and damage in the autonomic balance when compared to the ART groups. Expand
Linear and non-linear analysis of heart rate variability in HIV-positive patients on two different antiretroviral therapy regimens
TLDR
Despite ART regimens, HIV+ patients presented lower cardiac vagal modulation than controls, whereas no difference was observed among the HIV groups, suggesting that higher cardiovascular risk linked to PIs may be associated with factors other than autonomic dysfunction. Expand
Heart Rate Variability, HIV and the Risk of Cardiovascular Diseases in Rural South Africa
TLDR
Although HIV-infected participants treated with ART presented with less CVD risk factors they had a lower HRV indicating an increased risk of CVD, compared to HIV-un Infected participants, which indicates that they are at a higher risk for CVD. Expand
Current assessment of heart rate variability and QTc interval length in HIV/AIDS
TLDR
The latest research comparing QT and R-to-R interval length as a function of HIV+ status or antiretroviral therapy (ART) regimen supports the clinical relevance of the ECG across the age and HIV disease spectrum. Expand
Hypertension Risk with Abacavir Use among HIV-Infected Individuals: A Nationwide Cohort Study
TLDR
When present, poor ART adherence, requiring prophylactic antibiotics, male sex, and older age may warrant additional concern for hypertension in patients treated with abacavir. Expand
Cardiovascular complications of HIV
TLDR
How the intrinsic and extrinsic factors related to HIV, ART and the associated risk factors can aid the epidemiological transition of mortality in this population of HIV-infected individuals is assessed. Expand
The Intersection of Cognitive Ability and HIV: A Review of the State of the Nursing Science.
TLDR
This state of the science article provides an overview of current issues and provides implications for practice, policy, and research to promote successful cognitive functioning in PLWH. Expand
Short-term aerobic training improves heart rate variability in men living with HIV: a pre-post pilot study
TLDR
The results suggest the short-term AT may improve HRV in men living with HIV and endothelial function parameters showed no changes. Expand
HIV Infection and Risk of Cardiovascular Diseases Beyond Coronary Artery Disease
TLDR
Evidence of other subtypes of CVD as emerging issues in the post-ART era, including heart failure, stroke, and arrhythmias, are reviewed to further elucidate the extent of non-coronary CVD in PLWH and the underlying mechanisms for them. Expand
The Effects of Acute Aerobic Exercise on Blood Pressure, Arterial Function, and Heart Rate Variability in Men Living With HIV
TLDR
MLHIV under cART exhibited attenuated postexercise hypotension vs. healthy controls, which seemed to relate with impairments in vascular function. Expand

Decreased Heart Rate Variability in HIV Positive Patients Receiving Antiretroviral Therapy: Importance of Blood Glucose and Cholesterol
TLDR
Moderate autonomic dysfunction is present in HIV positives patients even with suppressed viral load due to ART, and is correlated with HbA1c and hypercholesterolemia but not to duration of HIV or whether the patients were receiving protease inhibitors as part of the ART regime. Expand
Heart Rate Variability in HIV Patients, Diabetics, and Controls: The AGATAA Study
TLDR
It is speculated that HAART improves autonomic imbalance in frequency domain indices because there was no difference between the HAART group and controls, and the normalized power of the low and high-frequency components was increased and decreased respectively. Expand
Cardiovagal Autonomic Function in HIV-Infected Patients with Unsuppressed HIV Viremia
TLDR
There were differences in autonomic function between HIV-infected individuals and HIV seronegative controls, but not between the NVS and VS groups. Expand
Heart rate variability in human immunodeficiency virus-positive individuals.
TLDR
HRV is reduced in HIV-seropositive individuals in early stages of infection as well without any clinical evidence of autonomic dysfunction, which may serve as an early marker of future global sympatho-vagal imbalance. Expand
Characterization and natural course of cardiac autonomic nervous dysfunction in HIV‐infected patients
TLDR
Cardiac autonomic nervous dysfunction is severe in AIDS patients, although not significant in pre-AIDS patients, and proceeds with HIV disease progression, although its individual course is slow. Expand
Feasibility of assessing autonomic dysregulation at a distance: the case of the HIV-positive patient.
TLDR
This study shows the feasibility of obtaining, from personnel without specific training, adequate RR variability data for further spectral analysis form a distant specialized autonomic laboratory, of critical importance in the context of possible large-scale application of this simple telemedicine approach. Expand
Autonomic and cardiovascular function in HIV spectrum disease: Early indications of cardiac pathophysiology
TLDR
In the pre-AIDS stages of infection, autonomic functioning appeared intact; yet alterations in baroreceptor/vagal function associated with depressed myocardial function may be an early warning signal reflecting cardiovascular pathological processes potentially exacerbated by HIV spectrum disease. Expand
Cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy in HIV infected patients.
TLDR
Evidence of substantial autonomic dysfunction in AIDS patients compared with controls and mild abnormalities in the majority of HIV infected patients studied irrespective of CD4 count is found. Expand
Autonomic modulation following exercise is impaired in HIV patients.
TLDR
In conclusion, HIV patients showed impaired autonomic modulation, with reduced parasympathetic activity at rest and during post-exercise recovery, which was found to be significant during exercise and during recovery. Expand
Protease inhibitors and cardiac autonomic function in HIV-infected patients: a cross-sectional analysis from the Strategies for Management of Antiretroviral Therapy (SMART) Trial
TLDR
Compared to an NNRTI-no PI regimen, heart rate was lower for those taking a PI/r or non-boosted PI and heart rate variability was greater, reflecting better cardiac autonomic function, for thoseTaking a non-Boosted PI regimen but not PI/ r. Expand
