Standard autonomic tests (heart rate response to deep breathing-HR db , heart rate and systolic blood pressure response to tilt-ΔHR and ΔSBP) and spectral analysis of heart rate and arterial blood pressure and their transfer function (for the mid-frequency band a measure of baroreflex sensitivity) were performed in 20 patients with idiopathic Parkinson's disease (IPD) and 20 age-matched controls. Patients showed significantly diminished ΔSBP, and reduced sympathetic vasomotor and cardiomotor… CONTINUE READING
