Classic risk factors for mortality due to chronic heart failure (CHF), such as low left ventricular ejection fraction, NYHA functional stage, and increased heart rate perform well in the prediction of death from pump failure. The prediction of sudden cardiac death (SCD) remains somewhat problematic. Numerous studies have analyzed the potential contribution heart rate variability (HRV) can make to risk assessment in CHF. The aim of this review was to summarize the literature and identify the… CONTINUE READING
