BACKGROUND Heart rate variability (HRV) recorded over 5 min or 24 h is used increasingly to measure autonomic function and as a prognostic indicator in cardiology. Measuring HRV during a standard 10-s ECG would save time and cut costs. The aim of this study, therefore, was to discover whether indices of HRV calculated over 10 s could predict cardiac vagal… CONTINUE READING
