Cardiovascular variability in heart rate and blood pressure can be used to quantify the autonomic modulation of cardiovascular function. Although the first studies were only published 10 to 20 years ago, there is presently a vast amount of knowledge from numerous publications that allows a better insight into the neural control mechanisms of the heart. The development of methods such as heart rate variability and baroreflex sensitivity prompted a multidisciplinary approach since many aspects… CONTINUE READING
