BACKGROUND Arterial stiffness and low heart rate variability (HRV) have each been associated with increased cardiovascular risk in a variety of patient populations. We explored the relationship between HRV and pulse wave velocity (PWV measure of arterial stiffness) in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD prior to ESRD) along with examining their… CONTINUE READING
