Mechanisms of Periodic Heart Rate Oscillations: A Study Using Controlled Breathing Tests

Abstract

An orthostatic test with frequency-controlled breathing (with periods of 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12 s) was used to analyze frequency estimates of the heart rate variability (HRV) spectrum in the low frequency (LF) and high frequency (HF) ranges in 36 volunteers (26 men and 10 women) aged 19–21 years without signs of heart or respiratory pathology. The subjects… (More)
