Detrended Fluctuation Analysis of Heartbeat Interval Signal: Alternans Lowers the Scaling Exponent of Heartbeat Fluctuation Dynamics in Animal Models and Humans

Abstract

"Alternans" is an arrhythmia exhibiting alternating amplitude or alternating interval from heartbeat to heartbeat, which was first described in 1872 by Traube. Recently alternans was finally recognized as the harbinger of a cardiac disease because physicians noticed that an ischemic heart exhibits alternans. To quantify irregularity of the heartbeat… (More)
