INTRODUCTION Altered profile of RR variability and reduced baroreflex gain, as autonomic proxies, are observed in hypertensive individuals. AIM To assess whether using logistic models and cross-validation techniques autonomic proxies can be used to identify clinical hypertensive and normotensive groups.
