The autonomic regulation of cardiovascular function was evaluated in 15 cirrhotic patients with ascites and in 13 healthy subjects by the autoregressive power spectral analysis (PSA) of the intervals between adjacent R waves of the electrocardiogram (RR) interval and arterial pressure variability. Total power, low frequency (LF; index of the sympathetic activity of the heart and circulation), and high frequency (HF; index of vagal tone to the heart) components of the RR interval, systolic, and… CONTINUE READING
