While heart rate variability has been measured in many clinical settings and has offered insights into how HR is controlled, rarely has it offered unique information that has led to changes in patient management. We review our experience in developing continuous HR characteristics monitoring to aid in the early diagnosis of sepsis in premature infants in the neonatal intensive care unit. A predictive algorithm, developed at one center and validated at another, has led to diagnosis and treatment…

TLDR
This paper proposes to model the heart-rate using Markov chain model and estimate transition probabilities using maximum likelihood estimator and the patient population from Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at McMaster Hospital and the results are evaluated using the real data set.

TLDR
How HeRO is used to assist in earlier diagnosis and treatment of infection in very low-birth-weight infants is reviewed.
Heart Rate Characteristics Monitoring in the NICU: A New Tool for Clinical Care and Research
TLDR
A heart rate characteristics monitor was developed which continuously calculates an HRC index which is the fold-increase in risk that a baby will experience a clinical deterioration consistent with proven or clinical sepsis in the next 24 hours.
Predictive monitoring for early detection of sepsis in neonatal ICU patients
TLDR
Harnessing and analyzing the vast amounts of physiologic data constantly displayed in ICU patients will lead to improved algorithms for early detection, prognosis, and therapy of critical illnesses.
HeRO monitoring in the NICU : sepsis detection and beyond Heart rate observation ( HeRO ) monitoring was developed for detection of sepsis in preterm infants
TLDR
This article will review the physiological basis of abnormal HRC in sepsis and current research aimed at developing even more sophisticated and effective predictive monitoring algorithms to improve outcomes of patients in the NICU and elsewhere in the hospital.
[Heart rate variability analysis: a new approach in clinical research methodology for neonatal sepsis].
TLDR
A new method of nonlinear analysis have been proposed to investigate time series of physiological data, particularly heart rate variability analysis, that apparently would detect abnormal changes which precedes clinical or biochemical signs of infection by as much as 12-24 hours.
Cardiovascular oscillations at the bedside: early diagnosis of neonatal sepsis using heart rate characteristics monitoring.
TLDR
It is found that measurements of standard deviation, sample asymmetry and sample entropy are highly related to imminent clinical illness.
Monitoring and Identification of Sepsis Development through a Composite Measure of Heart Rate Variability
TLDR
A procedure to integrate multiple measures of heart rate variability into a unique measure capable of tracking the development of sepsis in 12 out of 14 patients is presented, highlighting the potential clinical utility of a composite measure of variability.

Heart Rate Characteristics and Laboratory Tests in Neonatal Sepsis
TLDR
It is found that the clinical diagnosis of neonatal sepsis is preceded by abnormal heart rate characteristics (HRC) of reduced variability and transient decelerations, and a predictive HRC monitoring strategy based on multivariable logistic regression analysis that was developed at one tertiary care NICU and validated at another.
Abnormal Heart Rate Characteristics Preceding Neonatal Sepsis and Sepsis-Like Illness
TLDR
Continuous HRC monitoring is a generally valid and potentially useful noninvasive tool in the early diagnosis of neonatal sepsis and sepsi-like illness.
Abnormal Heart Rate Characteristics Are Associated with Neonatal Mortality
TLDR
The abnormal heart rate characteristics (HRC) of reduced variability and transient decelerations accompany neonatal illness such as late-onset sepsis and are associated with an increased risk of death, and a noninvasive continuous measure that uses information collected throughout the hospitalization and that requires no data entry is proposed.
Toward the early diagnosis of neonatal sepsis and sepsis-like illness using novel heart rate analysis.
TLDR
Newborn infants who had abrupt clinical deterioration as a result of sepsis and sepsi-like illness had abnormal HRC and SNAP that worsened over 24 hours before the clinical suspicion of Sepsis, leading to earlier diagnosis and more effective therapy.
Cardiac variability in critically ill adults: Influence of sepsis

Sample Asymmetry Analysis of Heart Rate Characteristics with Application to Neonatal Sepsis and Systemic Inflammatory Response Syndrome
TLDR
It is concluded that SAA is a useful new mathematical technique for detecting the abnormal heart rate characteristics that precede neonatal sepsis and SIRS.
Increased Nonstationarity of Neonatal Heart Rate Before the Clinical Diagnosis of Sepsis
TLDR
New HR measures based on the empirical cumulative distribution function (ECDF) that are highly significantly associated with sepsis, but are not correlated with HR measures such as moments or sample entropy are developed.
Decomplexification in critical illness and injury: Relationship between heart rate variability, severity of illness, and outcome
TLDR
The hypothesis that measures of heart rate power spectra are inversely related and negatively correlated to severity of illness and outcome in critically ill and injured children is supported.
Sample entropy analysis of neonatal heart rate variability.
TLDR
Results show that entropy falls before clinical signs of neonatal sepsis and that missing points are well tolerated, and proposes more informed selection of parameters and reexamination of studies where approximate entropy was interpreted solely as a regularity measure.
