BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The baroreceptor reflex arc is important in the short-term regulation of the cardiovascular system, and small studies have reported impaired cardiac baroreceptor sensitivity (BRS) after acute stroke. However, the prognostic significance of impaired BRS is uncertain. METHODS One hundred twenty-four patients underwent simultaneous ECG and noninvasive beat-to-beat blood pressure (BP) monitoring within 72 hours of neuroradiologically confirmed acute ischemic stroke. Cardiac… CONTINUE READING
