Cardiovascular autonomic mechanisms control heart rate (HR) and determination of heart rate variability (HRV) permits the quantitative assessment of relative shifts in autonomic cardiac control during head-up tilt (HUT). The study herein used HRV techniques to determine the vagal and sympathetic contribution to the change in HR during HUT in persons with tetraplegia (T; n = 7) paraplegia (P; n = 7) and a non-spinal cord injured (non-SCI; n = 8) control group. Heart rate (HR) was continuously… CONTINUE READING
