Fractal frequency scaling of heart period variability is used as a concise index of overall cardiac control. However, no prior study has assessed within-individual reproducibility of fractal indices of heart period, or reported how the estimated indices respond to autonomic blockade. Therefore, we examined fractal properties of the heart period from ten young, healthy individuals during three separate experimental sessions under control (saline) conditions and twice under combined autonomic… CONTINUE READING
