BACKGROUND There are gender differences in heart rate and blood pressure response to postural change. Also, normal aging is often associated with diminished cardiac autonomic modulation during postural change from supine to upright position. Nevertheless, the exact mechanisms of these physiological alterations are not entirely understood. METHODS A total of 362 volunteers (206 females, age range: 10-88 years) underwent continuous, noninvasive, beat-to-beat blood pressure and ECG recordings in… CONTINUE READING
