Open a Window into the Autonomic Nervous System
Quantifying the amount of autonomic nervous system activity in an individual patient can be extremely important, because it provides a gauge of disease severity in a large number of diseases. Heart rate variability (HRV) calculated from both short-term and longer-term electrocardiograms is an ideal window into such autonomic activity for two reasons: one, heart rate is sensitive to autonomic activity in the entire body, and two, recording electrocardiograms is inexpensive and non-invasive unlike other techniques currently available for autonomic assessment, such as microneurography and metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) scanning. Heart Rate Variability (HRV) Signal Analysis: Clinical Applications provides a comprehensive review of three major aspects of HRV: mechanism, technique, and clinical applications.
Learn Techniques for HRV Signal Analysis
Edited by an engineer, a cardiologist, and a neurologist, and featuring contributions by widely published international researchers, this interdisciplinary book begins by reviewing the many signal processing techniques developed to extract autonomic activity information embedded in heart-rate records. The classical time and frequency domain measures, baroreceptor sensitivity, and newer non-linear measures of HRV are described with a fair amount of mathematical detail with the biomedical engineer and mathematically oriented physician in mind. The book also covers two recent HRV methods, heart-rate turbulence and phase-rectified signal averaging.
Use of HRV in Clinical Care
The large clinical section is a must-read for clinicians and engineers wishing to get an insight into how HRV is applied in medicine. Nineteen chapters altogether are devoted to uses of HRV in:
Bringing together the latest research, this comprehensive reference demonstrates the utility and potential of HRV signal analysis in both the clinic and physiology laboratory.Biographie de l'auteur :

"Written for graduate students and professionals dealing with heart rate variability (HRV), this cutting-edge reference reviews how minute variations in the beat-to-beat heart rate are regulated. It explores how these variations can be used as a window to understanding the central and peripheral mechanisms that modulate the autonomic nervous systems. Explaining how HRV is characterized through simple statistics and frequency analysis in both healthy human subjects and patients with a variety of diseases,the book provides examples for methods that require mathematical techniques. The authors cite a variety of real-life medical situations and offer extensive end-of-chapter references"--Provided by publisher.
