Mutual information and phase dependencies: measures of reduced nonlinear cardiorespiratory interactions after myocardial infarction.


The heart rate variability (HRV) is related to several mechanisms of the complex autonomic functioning such as respiratory heart rate modulation and phase dependencies between heart beat cycles and breathing cycles. The underlying processes are basically nonlinear. In order to understand and quantitatively assess those physiological interactions an adequate… (More)
