The beat-to-beat variation of PR interval, which is thought to be a reflection of autonomic nervous system, is difficult to measure with accuracy because the variation is too subtle. However, R wave amplitude in the P wave triggered SAECG is easily attenuated in comparison to that in the R wave triggered SAECG, which might be due to PR interval fluctuation… CONTINUE READING
