The purpose of this work is to characterize the heart rate variability (HRV) of patients affected by congestive heart failure (CHF) and to find out the main difference between this pathological condition and the physiological state. Parameters adopted in this work are: the detrended fluctuation analysis (DFA) and the Higuchi exponent to assess long correlations and self-similarity; the regularity estimators, approximate entropy (ApEn) and sample entropy (SampEn) and the multiscale entropy (MSE… CONTINUE READING
