1. The acute effects of a moderate dose of ethanol (1g/kg body weight) on heart rate and blood pressure variability and baroreflex sensitivity were studied in 12 healthy male subjects in a juice-controlled experiment. Electrocardiographic and finger blood pressure data were recorded and stored in a minicomputer during 5 min of controlled breathing (15 cycles/min) and during deep breathing (5 s inspiration, 5 s expiration, four cycles) before drinking and hourly thereafter for 3 h. 2. Mean… CONTINUE READING
