INTRODUCTION We investigated the relationship between heart rate variability and preclinical carotid intima-media thickening, a putative index of atherosclerosis. METHODS A sample of 350 men and women (mean age 56.8 years) selected for the presence or absence of untreated hypertension was assessed for heart rate variability at rest and separately for carotid intima-media thickness using duplex ultrasonography (Pittsburgh study). Findings from this sample were cross-validated in a subsample of… CONTINUE READING
