Acute alcohol withdrawal is often associated with increased sympathetic activity, and a decreased baroreflex sensitivity (BRS) can be assumed. Parameters of heart rate variability (HRV), blood pressure variability (BPV), BRS as well as cardiac index (CI), left ventricular work index (LVWI) and total peripheral resistance (TPR) were investigated in 20 patients undergoing acute alcohol withdrawal and matched controls. Measures were obtained during the peak of withdrawal symptomatology prior to… CONTINUE READING
