Response to Valsalva Maneuver in Humans

Functional metrics of autonomic control of heart rate, including baroreflex sensitivity, have been shown to be strongly associated with cardiovascular risk. A decrease in baroreflex sensitivity with aging is hypothesized to represent a contributing …

Estimating Activity from Instantaneous Heart Rate

Using only a heart rate time series, it is possible to measure a number of features that reflect the level of physical activity. Here we provide software for deriving an "activity index" based on measurements of mean heart rate, total powe…
