BACKGROUND In advanced chronic heart failure (CHF), correlation between heart rate variability (HRV) and parameters of disease severity is still unclear. A reduced HRV has been related to left but not to right ventricular function parameters. Moreover, the prognostic role of spectral measures is not fully defined. We sought to assess HRV by using a short electrocardiographic recording in ambulatory patients with severe CHF to investigate the relation of HRV with clinical neurohormonal and… CONTINUE READING
