OBJECTIVE To investigate the autonomic function in patients with brain damage of various extents. The purposes were to correlate the parameters derived from spectral analysis of the heart-rate variability (HRV) with the classic Glasgow coma scale (GCS), and to evaluate the possible clinical application of HRV in the autonomic functions in patients with various severities of brain-stem injury. METHODS A total of 90 patients was divided into 5 groups based on the GCS: I: 15, II: 9-14, III: 4-8… CONTINUE READING
