Age-related changes in cardiac autonomic control during sleep.


Aging is commonly associated with decreased sleep quality and increased periodic breathing (PB) that can influence heart rate variability (HRV). Cardiac autonomic control, as inferred from HRV analysis, was determined, taking into account the sleep quality and breathing patterns. Two groups of 12 young (21.1 +/- 0.8 years) and 12 older (64.9 +/- 1.9 years… (More)
