The Influence of Corticosteroids on Heart Rate Variablity in Acute Cervical Spinal Cord Injury.


Heart rate variability (HRV) gives information on the sympathetic-parasympathetic autonomic balance. The aim of the study was to analyze sympathovagal balance after acute spinal cord injury (SCI), demonstrated by linear measures in time and frequency domain of HRV and to analyze the effect of corticosteroids on HRV parameters in SCI.
