In order to clarify the mechanism of postprandial hypotension in the elderly, the influence of gastric motility and autonomic nervous activity on hypotensive reactions after meals was investigated, using electrogastrograms (EGGs) and spectral analysis of heart rate variability. Methods. EGGs, heart rate variability, blood pressure, and blood catecholamine levels before and after a meal were measured in 20 healthy young subjects (mean age, 25.6 ± 5.6 years; young group) and in 20 healthy elderly… CONTINUE READING
