Effect of fentanyl on heart rate variability during mechanical ventilation

Abstract

This study was performed to investigate the effect of fentanyl alone on heart rate variability (HRV) during mechanical ventilation using power spectral analysis. Arterial baroreceptor reflex was also tested with pharmacological manipulation to assess the contribution of vagal baroreceptor reflex modulation of HRV during fentanyl anesthesia. Ten patients… (More)
