Attenuated cardiac parasympathetic activity appear to be an important risk factor contributing to sudden cardiac death in subjects with overt coronary disease but its predictive value in otherwise healthy normal subjects is not known. We have for 8 years followed 260 apparently healthy adult subjects who underwent Hotler monitoring. Twelve died, 14 developed ischaemic heart disease and four suffered sudden cardiac death. A healthy control subject was matched, along with other risk factors, for… Expand
Slowed atrial and atrioventricular conduction and depressed HRV in a murine model of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
TLDR
Mice with HCM developed slowed atrial and atrioventricular conduction and depressed HRV, and these changes were conserved with increasing age, indicating worse clinical outcome in heart failure progression in HCM patients. Expand
Alterations in heart rate variability are associated with abnormal myocardial perfusion.
TLDR
Autonomic dysfunction, measured by non-linear HRV in the morning hours, was associated with an increased OR of abnormal MPI, suggesting a potentially important role of ECG-based biomarkers in risk stratification for individuals with suspected ischemic heart disease. Expand
Average heart rate, atrial fibrillation and R-on-T ventricular ectopy in 24h Holter recordings predict all-cause mortality in healthy middle-aged men
TLDR
Results of a 22-year follow-up study in 753 apparently healthy men finding elevated relative risk was found for atrial fibrillation, R-on-T ventricular ectopic beats, Hrav, and pNN50 and all cause mortality risk factors were computed by a Cox proportional hazards model. Expand
Effects of hyperventilation on heart rate and QT variability in panic disorder pre- and post-treatment
TLDR
The reduction in QTVI observed post-treatment raises the question of whether treatment might have cardioprotective effects, at least in panic disorder patients who have particular types of co-morbid cardiac disease, yet these results must be interpreted cautiously. Expand
Beat-to-beat heart rate and QT interval variability in first episode neuroleptic-naive psychosis
TLDR
The data suggest that RRV and QTV alterations may be independent of medication effects in first episode psychosis patients and reflect impaired cardiac autonomic function that could underlie risk for abnormal ventricular repolarization and thereby increase the risk of sudden death and other arrhythmias. Expand
A novel heart rate variability algorithm for the detection of myocardial ischemia: pilot data from a prospective clinical trial.
TLDR
Pilot data suggest that the diagnostic yield of the novel HeartTrends HRV algorithm is superior to conventional EST for the non-invasive detection of myocardial ischemia. Expand
Sex differences in cardiac autonomic function of depressed young adults
TLDR
These results suggest a sex-dependent relationship between major depression and cardiac autonomic dysfunction and provide one potential explanation for sex differences in the association of depressive symptoms with cardiovascular morbidity. Expand
Prognostic Value of Heart Rate Variability in Patients With Cancer
  • Ying Guo, S. Koshy, +4 authors S. Yusuf
  • Medicine
  • Journal of clinical neurophysiology : official publication of the American Electroencephalographic Society
  • 2015
TLDR
The presence of cancer in combination with decreased heart rate variability (SDNN < 70 milliseconds) is associated with shorter survival time, independent of age, cancer stage, and performance status. Expand
QRS Amplitude of ECG in Normal Humans: Effects of Orthostatic Challenge on Linear and Nonlinear Measures of Beat-to-Beat Variability
TLDR
It is shown that the variability of QRS amplitude behaves differently in standing posture compared to R-R time series and thus the supine QRS amplitudinal changes may reflect more closely, the respiratory variability. Expand
Exaggerated Beat-to-Beat R Amplitude Variability in Patients with Panic Disorder after Intravenous Isoproterenol
TLDR
Patients with panic disorder had significantly more variability in R and T amplitude than normal controls and the R amplitude variability was increased further by β-adrenergic stimulation with isoproterenol, which was more pronounced in the patients. Expand

Heart rate variability and sudden death secondary to coronary artery disease during ambulatory electrocardiographic monitoring.
TLDR
Findings support suggestions that HR variability analysis may be useful in identifying patients at a higher risk of sudden death. Expand
Decreased heart rate variability and its association with increased mortality after acute myocardial infarction.
TLDR
HR variability remained a significant predictor of mortality after adjusting for clinical, demographic, other Holter features and ejection fraction, and a hypothesis to explain this finding is that decreased HR variability correlates with increased sympathetic or decreased vagal tone, which may predispose to ventricular fibrillation. Expand
Components of heart rate variability measured during healing of acute myocardial infarction.
TLDR
Analysis of 24-hour electrocardiograms showed that for the low HR variability group compared with the high: (1) the daytime and nighttime average HR was faster; (2) the difference between daylight and nighttime HR was less; (3) the proportion of differences greater than 50 ms between successive N-N intervals was smaller; and the number of HR "spikes" per day was less.

Prognostic value of reduced heart rate variability after myocardial infarction: clinical evaluation of a new analysis method.
TLDR
Measurement of heart rate variability by this simple, automated, operator-independent method provided useful information on the arrhythmic propensity in patients convalescent after myocardial infarction. Expand
Circadian variation and influence of risk factors on heart rate variability in healthy subjects.
TLDR
Risk factors and, in particular, the physical training level have impact on 24-hour HR variability in healthy subjects, which may prove valuable for modification of cardiac autonomic activity in patients. Expand
Predictive value of ventricular premature beats for subsequent ischaemic heart disease in apparently healthy subjects.
TLDR
A strong positive association between 'abnormal' VPBs observed in a random 24-h electrocardiographic recording of apparently healthy subjects 40-79 years of age and subsequent ischaemic heart disease is demonstrated and a 24-H ECG may be useful for the assessment of coronary risk even in asymptomatic subjects. Expand
Mean 24 hour heart rate, minimal heart rate and pauses in healthy subjects 40-79 years of age.
TLDR
It is concluded that sex, age, smoking and leisure-time physical activity are all factors that have to be considered for a thorough evaluation of heart rate variables in the 24 h ambulatory ECG. Expand
Heart rate and cardiovascular mortality: the Framingham Study.
TLDR
A more impressive association to cardiovascular disease was observed in men than in women, which was independent of associated cardiovascular risk factors, and all-cause, cardiovascular, and coronary mortality rates increased progressively in relation to antecedent heart rates determined biennially.

The effects of daily exercise on susceptibility to sudden cardiac death.
TLDR
It is concluded that daily exercise prevents VF induced by acute myocardial ischemia in a subpopulation of dogs that were previously identified as susceptible to sudden cardiac death. Expand
Predictors of Sudden Cardiac Death
TLDR
Predictors among other laboratory and quantitative tests include chylous serum, uric acid, hemoglobin, leukocyte count, pulse rate, diminished lung volumes, and hearing loss, which suggest a relationship more to the underlying atherosclerotic process than to the terminal fatal mechanism. Expand
