Assessment of cardiac autonomic control by heart period variability in patients with early-onset familial obesity.

Abstract

For quantitative assessment of cardiac autonomic control, time and frequency domain measures of heart period variability were calculated by 24 h Holter recording in 10 young obese women with early-onset familial obesity and in 10 control subjects. Ultra low frequency and very low frequency power were lower in obese subjects than in controls (P < 0.05). High… (More)
