BACKGROUND The increase in heart rate that accompanies exercise is due in part to a reduction in vagal tone. Recovery of the heart rate immediately after exercise is a function of vagal reactivation. Because a generalized decrease in vagal activity is known to be a risk factor for death, we hypothesized that a delayed fall in the heart rate after exercise might be an important prognostic marker. METHODS For six years we followed 2428 consecutive adults (mean [+/-SD] age, 57+/-12 years; 63… CONTINUE READING
