OBJECTIVE: To evaluate confounders and predictors of BRS_v derived from the rise in BP during phase III-IV of the VM , and to generate normative values for this parameter. BACKGROUND: The baroreflex plays a key role in human blood pressure (BP) regulation. Its efferent limb modifies BP via a vagal (heart rate) and adrenergic component (peripheral resistance and cardiac output). The Valsalva maneuver (VM) is widely used to quantify the sensitivity of the vagal baroreflex loop (vagal… CONTINUE READING
