BACKGROUND In clinical cardiology, heart rate variability is a putative index of autonomic cardiovascular function. Signs of reduced vagal activity are not only associated with an enhanced risk of sudden cardiac death, but such impaired heart rate variability became a new predictor of sudden cardiac death and other mortality in patients with a variety of diseased states. HYPOTHESIS It is postulated (1) that the time structure (chronome) of heart rate variability in clinical health includes a… CONTINUE READING
