Autonomically mediated cardiovascular responses to certain manoeuvres were studied in 20 parkinson patients, 24 h off levodopa-decarboxylase inhibitor medication and again one h after medication. Results were compared with 15 healthy control subjects. The heart rate at rest was higher in parkinson, the respiratory sinus arrhythmia was lower, while the Valsalva ratio, the heart rate and blood pressure responses during an orthostatic test and the heart rate response to a dive reflex test were… CONTINUE READING
