Comparison of the prognostic values of invasive and noninvasive assessments of baroreflex sensitivity in heart failure.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES No studies have compared the prognostic values of invasive (phenylephrine, Phe) and noninvasive (transfer function) assessments of baroreflex sensitivity (BRS). METHODS Three hundred and one heart failure patients [age: 53 ± 8 years, New York Heart Association class II-III: 88%, left-ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF): 28 ± 8%] underwent an 8… (More)
