PURPOSE To compare the LnRMSSD and the LnRMSSD:RR values obtained during a 5-min stabilization period with the subsequent 5-min criterion period and to determine the time course for LnRMSSD and LnRMSSD:RR stabilization at 1-min analysis in elite team-sport athletes. PARTICIPANTS 35 elite futsal players (23.9 ± 4.5 y, 174.2 ± 4.0 cm, 74.0 ± 7.5 kg, 1576.2 ± 396.3 m in the Yo-Yo test level 1). METHODS The RR-interval recordings were obtained using a portable heart-rate monitor continuously…

Stabilization period before capturing an ultra-short vagal index can be shortened to 60 s in endurance athletes and to 90 s in university students

The shortest stabilization period required to stabilize Ln RMSSD and HR was set at 60 s for endurance-trained athletes and 90 s for university students, and positive biases for ultra-short-term LnRMSSD compared with reference values were showed.

Adequacy of the Ultra-Short-Term HRV to Assess Adaptive Processes in Youth Female Basketball Players

The lnRMSSD can be calculated within only 2 min of data acquisition in young female basketball players, with the ultra-short-term measure presenting similar sensitivity to training effects as the standard criterion measure.

Suitability of Ultra-Short-Term Heart Rate Variability in Military Trainees

A 1-minute HRV recording preceded by a 1-min stabilization period seems to be a suitable alternative to criterion measures in military trainees, and ultra-short procedures may facilitate routine HRV tracking in tactical populations for status-monitoring purposes.

Post-Exercise Recovery of Ultra-Short-Term Heart Rate Variability after Yo-Yo Intermittent Recovery Test and Repeated Sprint Ability Test

The moderate to high correlation coefficient of theHRVUST LnSDNN:LnRMSSD ratio to the HRVcriterion LnLF:LNHF ratio indicated the capacity to facilitate the post-exercise shortening duration of HRV measurement after maximal anaerobic or aerobic shuttle running.

Relationship Between Resting Heart Rate Variability and Intermittent Endurance Performance in Novice Soccer Players

It is observed that a practical measure of parasympathetic activity at rest is largely associated with performance obtained during a traditional intermittent endurance performance test.

Minimal Window Duration for Accurate HRV Recording in Athletes

The aim of the present work was to assess the minimum record duration to obtain reliable HRV results and concludes that studies relying on RMSSD may shorten the windows to 3 min in SU or seated position only and to 6 min if there is an orthostatic test.

Minimal Stabilization Time for Ultra-short Heart Rate Variability Measurements in Professional Soccer.

1-minute HRV measurements with a prior 1-minute or longer pre-stabilization time are valid to measure HRV in professional male soccer players and showed the lowest correlation and the highest bias from the criterion.

Heart Rate Variability and Stress Recovery Responses during a Training Camp in Elite Young Canoe Sprint Athletes

Male canoeists undertook higher perceived training loads than females, with a consequent higher level of total perceived stress and lnRMSSD during a 10-day training camp, which most likely increased with large and very large differences in males and moderate differences in females during the training period.

Determination of minimal recording period to assess resting heart rate variability during pregnancy.

The shortest time segments of the parasympathetic index natural logarithm transformation of root mean square of successive R-R differences (Ln rMSSD) with the criterion period in pregnant and nonpregnant women can facilitate its applicability in clinical/exercise-training settings.

Ultra-Short-Term and Short-Term Heart Rate Variability Recording during Training Camps and an International Tournament in U-20 National Futsal Players

For accuracy of HRV measures, 30 s or 1 min ultra-short-term record of LnRMSSDmean and short-term records of at least 2 min during the training camps are recommended in U-20 national futsal players.



Heart rate variability stabilization in athletes: towards more convenient data acquisition

The results lend support to shorter, more convenient ECG recording procedures for lnRMSSD assessment in athletes by reducing the prerecording stabilization period to 1 min.

Ultra-short-term heart rate variability indexes at rest and post-exercise in athletes: evaluating the agreement with accepted recommendations.

60 seconds appears to be an acceptable recording time for lnRMSSD data collection in collegiate athletes, and the utility of ultra-sound-term ln RMSSD measures, especially 60 seconds in duration, within field setting for monitoring athletes at rest and in response to stress appears promising.

Seasonal changes in physical performance and heart rate variability in high level futsal players.

After a short pre-season, futsal players improved their RSA and Yo-Yo IR1 performance with concomitant improvements in HRV and these indices were maintained during the in-season period while RSAbest was improved and RSAdecrement impaired.

Longitudinal changes in cardiac autonomic function and aerobic fitness indices in endurance runners: A case study with a high-level team

Changes in the velocity associated with O2max and vagally mediated HRV were highly associated with 5-km running performance within the investigated team, which has important implications because these parameters can be assessed longitudinally to monitor adaptation to training.

Cardiac parasympathetic activity and race performance: an elite triathlete case study.

To conclude, in this triathlete, a decrease in RHR concurrent with increased ln rMSSD compared with the previous week consistently appears indicative of positive training adaptation during a training block.

Change in performance in response to training load adjustment based on autonomic activity.

Daily quantification of ANS activity by SA HRV seems to be a promising tool for the enhancement of Perf based on spectral analysis of heart rate variability to determine autonomic nervous system activity.

Sensitivity of monthly heart rate and psychometric measures for monitoring physical performance in highly trained young handball players.

The present results highlight the limitation of monthly measures of resting HR, HRV and perceived mood and fatigue for predicting in-season changes in physical performance in highly-trained adolescent handball players and suggest that more frequent monitoring might be required, and/or that other markers might need to be considered.

Evaluating training adaptation with heart-rate measures: a methodological comparison.

The averaging of RHR and HRV values over a 1-wk period appears to be a superior method for evaluating positive adaption to training compared with assessing its value on a single isolated day.

Heart Rate Variability in Athletes

There is a strong need for basic research on the nature of the control and regulating mechanism exerted by the autonomic nervous system on cardiovascular function in athletes, preferably with a multidisciplinary approach between cardiologists, exercise physiologists, pulmonary physiologists and coaches and biomedical engineers.

Monitoring training with heart rate-variability: how much compliance is needed for valid assessment?

A plateau in the increase in standardized changes/r values' magnitude after 3 and 4 d, respectively, in trained triathletes is indicated, indicating a minimum number of days that heart-rate-variability data should be averaged to achieve corresponding equivalent results as data averaged over a 1-wk period.
