Slope of autocorrelation function of detrended 24-hour RR-intervals independently predicts mortality in postinfarction patients

Although Heart Rate VariabiliQ (HRV) was shown to be associated with mortulity of post myocardial infurction (Mi) patients, the clinical use of conventional HRV parameters is limited. We proposed new method based on the analysis of autocorrelation function (ACF) of detrended RR interval recordings. One thousand four hundred f f r y five consecutive post MI… (More)
