The ENTERIC NERVOUS SYSTEM; PARASYMPATHETIC NERVOUS SYSTEM; and SYMPATHETIC NERVOUS SYSTEM taken together. Generally speaking, the autonomic nervous system regulates the internal environment during both peaceful activity and physical or emotional stress.

A response by the BARORECEPTORS to increased BLOOD PRESSURE. Increased pressure stretches BLOOD VESSELS which activates the baroreceptors in the vessel walls. The net response of the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM is a reduction of central sympathetic outflow. This reduces blood pressure both by decreasing peripheral VASCULAR RESISTANCE and by lowering CARDIAC OUTPUT. Because the baroreceptors are tonically active, the baroreflex can compensate rapidly for both increases and decreases in blood pressure.

A process involving chance used in therapeutic trials or other research endeavor for allocating experimental subjects, human or animal, between treatment and control groups, or among treatment groups. It may also apply to experiments on inanimate objects.
Abnormalities in any part of the HEART SEPTUM resulting in abnormal communication between the left and the right chambers of the heart. The abnormal blood flow inside the heart may be caused by defects in the ATRIAL SEPTUM, the VENTRICULAR SEPTUM, or both.
A condition caused by underdevelopment of the whole left half of the heart. It is characterized by hypoplasia of the left cardiac chambers (HEART ATRIUM; HEART VENTRICLE), the AORTA, the AORTIC VALVE, and the MITRAL VALVE. Severe symptoms appear in early infancy when DUCTUS ARTERIOSUS closes.
Maleness or femaleness as a constituent element or influence contributing to the production of a result. It may be applicable to the cause or effect of a circumstance. It is used with human or animal concepts but should be differentiated from SEX CHARACTERISTICS, anatomical or physiological manifestations of sex, and from SEX DISTRIBUTION, the number of males and females in given circumstances.
A beta-1 adrenergic antagonist that has been used in the emergency treatment of CARDIAC ARRYTHMIAS.
The oxygen consumption level above which aerobic energy production is supplemented by anaerobic mechanisms during exercise, resulting in a sustained increase in lactate concentration and metabolic acidosis. The anaerobic threshold is affected by factors that modify oxygen delivery to the tissues; it is low in patients with heart disease. Methods of measurement include direct measure of lactate concentration, direct measurement of bicarbonate concentration, and gas exchange measurements.
Tumors in any part of the heart. They include primary cardiac tumors and metastatic tumors to the heart. Their interference with normal cardiac functions can cause a wide variety of symptoms including HEART FAILURE; CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIAS; or EMBOLISM.

Graphic monitoring of labour. (1/19128)

The parturograph is a composite record designed for the monitoring of fetal and maternal well-being and the progress of labour. It permits the early recognition of abnormalities and pinpoints the patients who would benefit most from intervention. Observations are made from the time of admission of the mother to the caseroom and recorded graphically. Factors assessed include fetal heart rate, maternal vital signs and urine, cervical dilatation, descent of the presenting fetal part, and frequency, duration and intensity of uterine contractions.  (+info)

Reduction in baroreflex cardiovascular responses due to venous infusion in the rabbit. (2/19128)

We studied reflex bradycardia and depression of mean arterial blood pressure (MAP) during left aortic nerve (LAN) stimulation before and after volume infusion in the anesthetized rabbit. Step increases in mean right atrial pressure (MRAP) to 10 mm Hg did not result in a significant change in heart rate or MAP. After volume loading, responses to LAN stimulation were not as great and the degree of attenuation was propoetional to the level of increased MRAP. A change in responsiveness was observed after elevation of MRAP by only 1 mm Hg, corresponding to less than a 10% increase in average calculated blood volume. after an increase in MRAP of 10 mm Hg, peak responses were attenuated by 44% (heart rate) and 52% (MAP), and the initial slopes (rate of change) were reduced by 46% (heart rate) and 66% (MAP). Comparison of the responses after infusion with blood and dextran solutions indicated that hemodilution was an unlikely explanation for the attenuation of the reflex responses. Total arterial baroreceptor denervation (ABD) abolished the volume-related attenuation was still present following bilateral aortic nerve section or vagotomy. It thus appears that the carotid sinus responds to changes inblood volume and influences the reflex cardiovascular responses to afferent stimulation of the LAN. On the other hand, cardiopulmonary receptors subserved by vagal afferents do not appear to be involved.  (+info)

Quantification of baroreceptor influence on arterial pressure changes seen in primary angiotension-induced hypertension in dogs. (3/19128)

We studied the role of the sino-aortic baroreceptors in the gradual development of hypertension induced by prolonged administration of small amounts of angiotensin II (A II) in intact dogs and dogs with denervated sino-aortic baroreceptors. Short-term 1-hour infusions of A II(1.0-100 ng/kg per min) showed that conscious denervated dogs had twice the pressor sensitivity of intact dogs. Long-term infusions of A II at 5.0 ng/kg per min (2-3 weeks) with continuous 24-hour recordings of arterial pressure showed that intact dogs required 28 hours to reach the same level of pressure attained by denervated dogs during the 1st hour of infusion. At the 28th hour the pressure in both groups was 70% of the maximum value attained by the 7th day of infusion. Both intact and denervated dogs reached nearly the same plateau level of pressure, the magnitude being directly related both the the A II infusion rate and the daily sodium intake. Cardiac output in intact dogs initially decreased after the onset of A II infusion, but by the 5th day of infusion it was 38% above control, whereas blood volume was unchanged. Heart rate returned to normal after a reduction during the 1st day of infusion in intact dogs. Plasma renin activity could not be detected after 24 hours of A II infusion in either intact or denervated dogs. The data indicate that about 35% of the hypertensive effect of A II results from its acute pressor action, and an additional 35% of the gradual increase in arterial pressure is in large measure a result of baroreceptor resetting. We conclude that the final 30% increase in pressure seems to result from increased cardiac output, the cause of which may be decreased vascular compliance. since the blood volume remains unaltered.  (+info)

Evaluation of the force-frequency relationship as a descriptor of the inotropic state of canine left ventricular myocardium. (4/19128)

The short-term force-frequency characteristics of canine left ventricular myocardium were examined in both isolated and intact preparations by briefly pertubing the frequency of contraction with early extrasystoles. The maximum rate of rise of isometric tension (Fmas) of the isolated trabeculae carneae was potentiated by the introduction of extrasystoles. The ratio of Fmas of potentiated to control beats (force-frequency ratio) was not altered significantly by a change in muscle length. However, exposure of the trabeculae to isoproterenol (10(-7)M) significantly changed the force-frequency ratio obtained in response to a constant frequency perturbation. Similar experiments were performed on chronically instrumented conscious dogs. Left ventricular minor axis diameter was measured with implanted pulse-transit ultrasonic dimension transducers, and intracavitary pressure was measured with a high fidelity micromanometer. Atrial pacing was performed so that the end-diastolic diameters of the beats preceding and following the extrasystole could be made identical. Large increases in the maximum rate of rise of pressure (Pmas) were seen in the contraction after the extrasystole. The ratio of Pmax of the potentiated beat to that of the control beat was not changed by a 9% increase in the end-diastolic diameter, produced by saline infusion. Conversely, isoproterenol significantly altered this relationship in the same manner as in the isolated muscle. Thus, either in vitro or in situ, left ventricular myocardium exhibits large functional changes in response to brief perturbations in rate. The isoproterenol and length data indicate that the force-frequency ratio reflects frequency-dependent changes in the inotropic state, independent of changes in length.  (+info)

Site of myocardial infarction. A determinant of the cardiovascular changes induced in the cat by coronary occlusion. (5/19128)

The influence of site of acute myocardial infarction on heart rate, blood pressure, cardiac output, total peripheral resistance (TPR), cardiac rhythm, and mortality was determined in 58 anesthetized cats by occlusion of either the left anterior descending (LAD), left circumflex or right coronary artery. LAD occlusion resulted in immediate decrease in cardiac output, heart rate, and blood pressure, an increase in TPR, and cardiac rhythm changes including premature ventricular beats, ventricular tachycardia, and occasionally ventricular fibrillation. The decrease in cardiac output and increase in TPR persisted in the cats surviving a ventricular arrhythmia. In contrast, right coronary occlusion resulted in a considerably smaller decrease in cardiac output. TPR did not increase, atrioventricular condition disturbances were common, and sinus bradycardia and hypotension persisted in the cats recovering from an arrhythmia. Left circumflex ligation resulted in cardiovascular changes intermediate between those produced by occlusion of the LAD or the right coronary artery. Mortality was similar in each of the three groups. We studied the coronary artery anatomy in 12 cats. In 10, the blood supply to the sinus node was from the right coronary artery and in 2, from the left circumflex coronary artery. The atrioventricular node artery arose from the right in 9 cats, and from the left circumflex in 3. The right coronary artery was dominant in 9 cats and the left in 3. In conclusion, the site of experimental coronary occlusion in cats is a major determinant of the hemodynamic and cardiac rhythm changes occurring after acute myocardial infarction. The cardiovascular responses evoked by ligation are related in part to the anatomical distribution of the occluded artery.  (+info)

Hierarchy of ventricular pacemakers. (6/19128)

To characterize the pattern of pacemaker dominance in the ventricular specialized conduction system (VSCS), escape ventricular pacemakers were localized and quantified in vivo and in virto, in normal hearts and in hearts 24 hours after myocardial infarction. Excape pacemaker foci were localized in vivo during vagally induced atrial arrest by means of electrograms recorded from the His bundle and proximal bundle branches and standard electrocardiographic limb leads. The VSCS was isolated using a modified Elizari preparation or preparations of each bundle branch. Peacemakers were located by extra- and intracellular recordings. Escape pacemaker foci in vivo were always in the proximal conduction system, usually the left bundle branch. The rate was 43+/-11 (mean+/-SD) beats/min. After beta-adrenergic blockade, the mean rate fell to 31+/-10 beats/min, but there were no shifts in pacemaker location. In the infarcted hearts, pacemakers were located in the peripheral left bundle branch. The mean rate was 146+/-20 beats/min. In isolated normal preparations, the dominant pacemakers usually were in the His bundle, firing at a mean rate of 43+/-10 beats/min. The rates of pacemakers diminished with distal progression. In infarcted hearts, the pacemakers invariably were in the infarct zone. The mean firing rates were not influenced by beta-adrenergic blockade. The results indicate that the dominant pacemakers are normally in the very proximal VSCS, but after myocardial infarction pacemaker dominance is shifted into the infarct. Distribution of pacemaker dominance is independent of sympathetic influence.  (+info)

Perioperative growth hormone treatment and functional outcome after major abdominal surgery: a randomized, double-blind, controlled study. (7/19128)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate short- and long-term effects of perioperative human growth hormone (hGH) treatment on physical performance and fatigue in younger patients undergoing a major abdominal operation in a normal postoperative regimen with oral nutrition. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Muscle wasting and functional impairment follow major abdominal surgery. METHODS: Twenty-four patients with ulcerative colitis undergoing ileoanal J-pouch surgery were randomized to hGH (12 IU/day) or placebo treatment from 2 days before to 7 days after surgery. Measurements were performed 2 days before and 10, 30, and 90 days after surgery. RESULTS: The total muscle strength of four limb muscle groups was reduced by 7.6% in the hGH group and by 17.1% in the placebo group at postoperative day 10 compared with baseline values. There was also a significant difference between treatment groups in total muscle strength at day 30, and at the 90-day follow-up total muscle strength was equal to baseline values in the hGH group, but still significantly 5.9% below in the placebo group. The work capacity decreased by approximately 20% at day 10 after surgery, with no significant difference between treatment groups. Both groups were equally fatigued at day 10 after surgery, but at day 30 and 90 the hGH patients were less fatigued than the placebo patients. During the treatment period, patients receiving hGH had reduced loss of limb lean tissue mass, and 3 months after surgery the hGH patients had regained more lean tissue mass than placebo patients. CONCLUSIONS: Perioperative hGH treatment of younger patients undergoing major abdominal surgery preserved limb lean tissue mass, increased postoperative muscular strength, and reduced long-term postoperative fatigue.  (+info)

Heart rate and subsequent blood pressure in young adults: the CARDIA study. (8/19128)

The objective of the present study was to examine the hypothesis that baseline heart rate (HR) predicts subsequent blood pressure (BP) independently of baseline BP. In the multicenter longitudinal Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults study of black and white men and women initially aged 18 to 30 years, we studied 4762 participants who were not current users of antihypertensive drugs and had no history of heart problems at the baseline examination (1985-1986). In each race-sex subgroup, we estimated the effect of baseline HR on BP 2, 5, 7, and 10 years later by use of repeated measures regression analysis, adjusting for baseline BP, age, education, body fatness, physical fitness, fasting insulin, parental hypertension, cigarette smoking, alcohol consumption, oral contraceptive use, and change of body mass index from baseline. The association between baseline HR and subsequent systolic BP (SBP) was explained by multivariable adjustment. However, HR was an independent predictor of subsequent diastolic BP (DBP) regardless of initial BP and other confounders in white men, white women, and black men (0.7 mm Hg increase per 10 bpm). We incorporated the part of the association that was already present at baseline by not adjusting for baseline DBP: the mean increase in subsequent DBP was 1.3 mm Hg per 10 bpm in white men, white women, and black men. A high HR may be considered a risk factor for subsequent high DBP in young persons.  (+info)

Cardiac autonomic function was studied in 23 alcohol dependent men by standard tests of autonomic function and measurement of 24 hour heart rate variability. In all there was peripheral or central nervous system damage or both. Standard tests of autonomic function showed vagal neuropathy in seven. The remainder had normal autonomic function tests. Twenty four hour heart rate variability was measured as the standard deviation of the successive differences between RR intervals from an ambulatory electrocardiogram recording. Twenty four hour heart rate variability was significantly lower in both alcohol dependent groups than in controls, but the results in the two alcohol dependent groups were not significantly different from each other. The results of standard tests of autonomic function did not distinguish between the alcohol dependent men with normal autonomic function and controls. The differences in heart rate variability between this group and the controls may have been the result of the ...

N2 - The suppression of heart rate variation reflects cardiac autonomic nervous dysfunction and is known to be associated with a poor prognosis or sudden death in diabetic patients. We investigated consecutive changes in the heart rate variation in 51 alcoholics using the coefficient of variation of R‐R interval (CVRR). To correct for age effects, a ratio of CVRR to the standard predicted value (CVP) was calculated. On the whole, CVRR/CVP was suppressed on admission and on the 7th day of abstinence and increased on the 30th day. However, alcoholics could be divided into two groups by their CVRR/CVP on the 30th day: one group with transient autonomic ...
1. In patients with chronic heart failure, heart rate variability is reduced with relative preservation of very-low-frequency power (, 0.04 Hz). Heart rate variability has been measured without acceptable information on its stability and the optimal recording periods for enhancing this reproducibility.. 2. To this aim and to establish the optimal length of recording for the evaluation of the very-low-frequency power, we analysed 40, 20, 10 and 5 min ECG recordings obtained on two separate occasions in 16 patients with chronic heart failure. The repeatability coefficient and the variation coefficient were calculated for the heart rate variability parameters, in the time-domain (mean RR, SDRR and pNN50), and in the frequency-domain: very low frequency (, 0.04 Hz), low frequency (0.04-0.15 Hz), high frequency (0.15-0.40 Hz), total power (0-0.5 Hz).. 3. Mean RR remained virtually identical over time (variation coefficient 8%). The reproducibility of time-domain (variation coefficient 25-139%) and of ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Autonomic Interactions in the Control of Heart Rate in the Monkey. AU - Gottlieb, Sheldon H.. AU - Engel, Bernard T.. PY - 1979/11. Y1 - 1979/11. N2 - Each of 5 monkeys (Macaca mulatta) was operantly conditioned to raise and to lower heart rate consistently and reliably. Following such training the animals were tested using autonomic blocking agents (methyl‐atropine bromide and 1‐propranolol) to characterize the autonomic mechanisms mediating such control. The results were: 1) In the undrugged animal the extent to which it decreases its heart rate over a 2048‐sec period is a linear function of the baseline heart rate; 2) A linear relationship between baseline heart rate and heart rate decrease also is present within the first 128 sec; 3) There is a less consistent relationship between baseline heart rate and change in heart rate when animals must increase heart rate; 4) Vagal blockade significantly attenuates the ability of most animals to increase heart rate, primarily by ...
resting heart rate. To calculate your heart rate reserve, you need to know your age (you should know this!), and your resting heart rate. Suppose your resting heart rate is 60 beats per minute (bpm). Your maximum heart rate is still calculated as 220 - your age ie 184bpm. But your heart rate reserve is now given as the difference between resting and maximum heart rate, or 184 - 60bpm = 124bpm.. If you work at 75% of your heart rate reserve, youll be training at 75% of 124bpm over and above your resting heart rate ie 93bpm above 60bpm, which is 153bpm. At 80% of heart rate reserve, its 80% of 124bpm over and above resting heart rate, which is 99bpm above 60bpm or 159bpm. Your 75-80% training zone therefore is 153bpm - 159bpm.. Although its slightly more complex to apply, the Karvonen formula more accurately reflects the working % of your maximum oxygen uptake than does a simple % of max heart rate calculation, particularly for fitter people. So for example, youre much more likely to be ...

Methods and Results-We conducted a multicenter retrospective observational study of women with congenital heart disease who had undergone cardiopulmonary exercise testing within 2 years of pregnancy or during the first trimester. Cardiopulmonary exercise testing variables included peak oxygen consumption and measures of chronotropic response: peak heart rate, percentage of maximum age predicted heart rate, heart rate reserve (peak heart rate−resting heart rate), and chronotropic index [(peak heart rate−resting heart rate)/(220−age−resting heart rate)]. We identified 89 pregnancies in 83 women. There were 4 spontaneous abortions and 1 termination. One or more adverse cardiac events occurred in 18%; congestive heart failure in 14%, and sustained arrhythmia in 7%.

Rick Broida/CNET The fancy medical term for whats happening when you get winded walking up stairs is exertional intolerance. A resting heart rate of 110 is high but may not be abnormal for you depending on specific factors. Perceived exertion may not always be similar to your heart rate level, and it depends on the individual. There are several factors that affect your heart rate including your age, sex, weight, concomitant medical conditions, and fitness level. This should cause you to breathe more quickly with a modestly elevated heart rate but not prevent you from conversing easily. The heart rate readings seem accurate when I do aerobics.

Autonomic nervous system plays an integral role in homeostasis. Autonomic modulation can frequently be altered in patients with cardiac disorders as well as in patients with other critical illnesses or injuries. Assessment of heart rate variability is based on analysis of consecutive normal R-R intervals and may provide quantitative information on the modulation of cardiac vagal and sympathetic nerve input. The hypothesis that depressed heart rate variability may occur over a broad range of illness and injury, and may inversely correlated with disease severity and outcome has been tested in various clinical settings over the last decade. This article reviews recent literature concerning the potential clinical implications and limitations of heart rate variability assessment in general medicine. ...
It is crucial to realize that by virtue of its very definition, the HRV encompasses only oscillatory phenomena between heart beats resulting from the SA node depolarization [4,10]. While, ideally, all components of an R-R series originate from the SA node, the actual R-R series in both healthy and diseased subjects are contaminated by outliers due to artifacts and heart rhythm disturbances such as ectopic beats (ie, heart beats whose origin is outside of the SA node). Thus arises the necessity to ensure that the HRV analysis is performed on a series representing only the actual normal sinus rhythm (NSR) interbeat intervals, commonly referred to as N-N series (as in normal-to-normal).. The detrimental impact of ectopics on HRV measures is pronounced and well-documented [6,11-17]. In a recent study Stapelberg et al [18] examined the sensitivity of 38 time domain, frequency domain and nonlinear HRV measures to the addition of artifacts in real and artificial 24-hour recordings. In accordance with ...
A new study conducted at the University of Tampere in Finland shows that the physiology of the infant has an impact on how strongly the mothers anxiety during pregnancy predicts the infants temperamental negative emotionality, such as crying, fussiness, and fearfulness. According to the study, the association between maternal anxiety during pregnancy and infant negative emotionality at eight months was strong in infants with high heart rate variability. No such association was detected among infants with lower heart rate variability.. Heart rate variability reflects the functioning of the autonomic nervous system, and recent research has linked high heart rate variability to greater susceptibility to various environmental influences. Research has also shown that the stress and anxiety experienced by the mother during pregnancy are associated with higher temperamental negative emotionality in infants.. The main contribution of this study is to point out that not all children are similarly ...

Doctors give trusted, helpful answers on causes, diagnosis, symptoms, treatment, and more: Dr. Tuzcu on is it healthy to have a very slow heart rate: As the body needs more oxygen delivery, the heart rate increases. Exercise and overall good health make the body more efficient in use of that oxygen and thus less need for pumping fast. Of course slow heart rate can also occur with medications and other conduction system problems. A heart rate is too slow when symptoms occur. Consult your doctor.
HealthDay News) -- People with a slow heart rate dont have an increased risk for heart disease, a new study suggests.. A typical heart rate for an adult at rest is 60 to 100 beats a minute, but in some people its below 50 beats a minute, a condition called bradycardia, the researchers said.. Because the heart may not be pumping enough blood throughout the body, this slow heart rate can lead to light-headedness, shortness of breath, fainting or chest pain. However, it hasnt been clear whether a slow pulse increases the risk of heart disease, according to the study authors.. For a large majority of people with a heart rate in the 40s or 50s who have no symptoms, the prognosis is very good, corresponding author Dr. Ajay Dharod, instructor in internal medicine at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, N.C., said in a center news release.. Our results should be reassuring for those diagnosed with asymptomatic bradycardia, Dharod added.. In this study, researchers looked at data ...

Women who have a high resting heart rate may be more at risk of suffering from a heart attack, according to new research.. Findings published online in the British Medical Journal reveal middle-aged female subjects with a resting heart rate of 76 beats per minute or more had a 26 percent greater chance of suffering a heart attack than those with a rate of 62 beats per minute or lower.. Lead author Dr. Judith Hsia told HealthDay News that heart rate is not as strong an indicator as high LDL cholesterol level, but is part of the overall picture of coronary health.. Previous research had found that men with higher resting heart rates were at greater risk of a heart attack, but until now studies on women had not produced statistically significant results.. Commenting on the results, Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum of Lenox Hill Hospital told the news provider that exercise is essential for lowering heart rate and improving health.. When you exercise, you increase the tone of the autonomic nervous system, ...
PURPOSE: Heart rate monitoring is widely used to measure physical activity in children, but it may be dependent on the definition of resting heart rate used and the protocol used to measure or derive resting heart rate (RHR). The aim of this study was to determine the effect of RHR definition on activity levels assessed by PAHR-25 (% time at ,25% of RHR), PAHR-50 (% time at ,50% of RHR), and activity heart rate (AHR; mean HR minus RHR). METHODS: Minute-to-minute heart rates were measured over 3 d in 20 healthy preschool children aged 3-4 yr. Resting heart rate was measured for 5 min after a 10-min rest and was also derived from the following different but commonly used protocols: 1) mean of lowest heart rate plus all heart rates within three beats; 2) mean of lowest 5; 3) lowest 10; 4) lowest 50. This gave five different definitions of RHR. Differences in RHR and in the derived indices of activity among definitions were tested for agreement using a Bland-Altman analysis, and by rank order ...

Daily Exercise Can Increase The Slow Heart Rate/Yes, Bradycardia is defined as a resting heart rate below 60 beats per minute (b.p.m.). A slow heart rate
To illustrate the relationship between resting heart rate and baseline characteristics, we divided patients into groups by tertiles of heart rate. Tertiles were chosen according to the resting heart rate distribution at baseline. Each of these heart rate bands was centered round a multiple of 10, because we observed a substantial digit preference for investigator-reported heart rate. Differences in baseline characteristics across tertiles of baseline heart rate were assessed with a test for trend by means of variance weighted least square regression for continuous variables and with a nonparametric test for trend (18) for categorical variables in the overall CHARM population as well as in subgroups defined according to LVEF (i.e., reduced vs. preserved) and heart rhythm (presence or absence of AF). Kaplan-Meier survival analysis stratified according to tertiles of baseline heart rate for death from any cause and for the composite of cardiovascular death or hospital stay for worsening HF were ...

Heart-rate training is hardly a new concept to endurance athletes. The usefulness of heart-rate data, however, has been questionable.. In the past, runners have ended their runs and stared at maximum and average heart rate values following a training session, not knowing exactly what to do with this information. Fortunately, the paradigm of heart-rate training has shifted in recent years, making it easier to understand what effort levels you should be running at for a given workout. Rather than focusing on one to two specific heart-rate values, zone training clumps values into five broader ranges, described below.. RELATED: Should I finish my workout?. Although metabolic testing isnt required to follow heart-rate based training, it is the most accurate way to determine your training zones as well as where you need the most work. If you cant spring for testing, you can estimate your values by finding out your max heart rate and using the following percentages determine your own training ...

The profound reduction in heart rate variability (HRV) that occurs during exercise is thought to be, at least in part, the result of sympathetic nervous system activation. Moxonidine is a centrally acting anti-sympathetic drug, which suppresses sympathetic nervous system outflow by stimulation of central imidazoline receptors located in the rostral ventro-lateral medulla. This study was designed to investigate the combined effects of central sympathetic inhibition with moxonidine and steady-state dynamic exercise on HRV. Ten normal males participated in a double-blind cross-over study, taking either placebo or 0·4 mg of moxonidine. The subjects were studied at rest and during steady-state exercise. HRV was measured considering both time and frequency domain parameters. As a non-linear measure, the Poincaré scatter-plot was measured and analysed quantitatively. Ventilation and gas exchange were also measured during exercise. In addition, plasma catecholamines were measured at rest and during ...
A multiparametric heart rate variability analysis was performed to prove if combined heart rate variability (HRV) measures of different domains improve the result of risk stratification in patients after myocardial infarction. In this study, standard time domain, frequency domain and non-linear dynamics measures of HRV assessment were applied to 572 survivors of acute myocardial infarction. Three parameter sets each consisting of 4 parameters were applied and compared with the standard measurement of global heart rate variability HRVi. Discriminant analysis technique and t-test were performed to separate the high risk groups from the survivors. The predictive value of this approach was evaluated with receiver operator (ROC) and positive predictive accuracy (PPA) curves. Results--The discriminant analysis shows a separation of patients suffered by all cause mortality in 80% (best single parameter 74%) and sudden arrhythmic death in 86% (73%). All parameters of set 1 show a high significant difference (p
Introduction: Patients (pts) with ischemic cardiomyopathy (ICM) may have impaired heart rate variability (HRV) which is associated with worse prognosis. We tested the hypothesis that cardiac mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) implantation is associated with improvement in HRV in patients with severe LV dysfunction and abnormal HRV at baseline. Methods: The POSEIDON Trial evaluated transendocardial MSC implantation in pts with ICM. We examined 24-48 hour ambulatory monitoring data from 25 pts at baseline, immediately post MSC implant, and intermittently up to 13 months following implantation. HRV was assessed using 3 parameters: (1) standard deviation of NN intervals (SDNN), (2) the square root of the mean squared differences of successive NN intervals (RMSSD), and (3) standard deviation of the average normal NN intervals (SDANN). HRV indices were correlated to changes in ejection fraction (EF), end systolic volumes (ESV), end diastolic volumes (EDV), and sphericity index (SI) using t-test.. Results: ...
Background: Epidemiological studies have suggested an association between external estimates of exposure to metals in air particles and altered heart rate variability (HRV). However, studies on the association between internal assessments of metals exposure and HRV are limited. Objectives: The purpose of this study was to examine the potential association between urinary metals and HRV among residents of an urban community in Wuhan, China. Methods: We performed a cross-sectional analysis of 23 urinary metals and 5-min HRV indices (SDNN, standard deviation of normal-to-normal intervals; r-MSSD, root mean square of successive differences in adjacent normal-to-normal intervals; LF, low frequency; HF, high frequency; TP, total power) using baseline data on 2,004 adult residents of Wuhan. Results: After adjusting for other metals, creatinine, and other covariates, natural log-transformed urine titanium concentration was positively associated with all HRV indices (all p , 0.05). Moreover, we estimated ...
Dear Doctors: My heart rate was 99 when I went for my physical recently, and my doctor said thats too high. I explained its usually about 80, but medical appointments make me nervous. Still, it got me to thinking: Whats a normal resting heart rate? How do I get it to be lower?. Dear Reader: Heart rate refers to how many times your heart beats each minute. Add in the word resting, and youre talking about a heart rate measured when someone is calm and relaxed. Along with blood pressure, an individuals resting heart rate is often considered to be a window on their general health. And, just so you know, its not that unusual for someones heart rate, along with their blood pressure, to become elevated in the sometimes-stressful setting of a medical office.. According to the American Heart Association, a resting heart rate that ranges from 60 to 100 beats per minute is normal for an adult. Factors such as age, gender, height, weight, physical fitness, lifestyle and general health each play a ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Parasympathetic effects on heart rate recovery after exercise. AU - Kannankeril, Prince J.. AU - Le, Francis K.. AU - Kadish, Alan H.. AU - Goldberger, Jeffrey J.. PY - 2004/9. Y1 - 2004/9. N2 - Background: Exercise and its recovery period are associated with increased risk of death relative to sedentary periods. They are also accompanied by dynamic changes in autonomic tone. Little information is available regarding parasympathetic effects during high-intensity exercise and recovery. Methods: Ten normal subjects (five women; age 33 ± 2 years) underwent exercise testing on a bicycle ergometer. On day 1, subjects exercised to maximum tolerated workload using a graded protocol with 5 minutes at maximal workload (peak heart rate achieved 174.7 ± 5.4 bpm). On day 2, subjects performed the identical exercise protocol as on day 1; 1 minute into the maximum exercise stage, atropine (0.04 mg/kg) was administered. Heart rate was recorded every minute during exercise, and an ...
A growing body of literature has documented that job stress is associated with the development of cardiovascular disease. Nevertheless, the pathophysiological mechanism of this association remains unclear. The purpose of this study is to elucidate the relationship between job stress, heart rate variability, and metabolic syndrome. The study design was cross-sectional, and a total of 169 industrial workers were recruited. A structured-questionnaire was used to assess the general characteristics and job characteristics (work demand, decision latitude). Heart rate variability (HRV) was recorded using SA-2000 (medi-core), and was assessed by time-domain and by frequency-domain analyses. Time domain analysis was performed using SDNN (Standard Deviation of normal to normal interval), and spectral analysis using low-frequency (LF), high-frequency (HF), and total frequency power. Metabolic syndrome was defined on the basis of risk factors being clustered when three or more of the following cardiovascular risk
133bpm X 85% (High Intensity THR)= 113 bpm. 113bpm+54bpm =167 bpm. My Target Heart Rate Zone is 140bpm-167bpm. Target Heart Rate Zone. The Target Heart Rate zone is the desired range to reach during aerobic exercise and sets the stage for the heart and lungs to receive maximum benefit from exercise efforts. It is used during exercise to measure effort and to gauge the intensity of the workout. According to my Target Heart Rate Zone calculated above, an average heart rate of 135 bpm would be near the low end of the range and therefore be considered low intensity,. My average heart rate during that period of time, 135 bpm was approximately equivalent to a brisk walk. While I didnt feel as though I ran a 6 minute mile, I was slightly winded at the end of the 10 minutes. The 135 bpm that I averaged is close to the low end of my target range and is substantially more than my resting heart rate of 54 bpm. For the last 3 minutes of the practice, however, my heart rate continued to climb and ...

Keywords: Caffeine; heart rate variability; healthy volunteers. Introduction. The caffeine is one of the most widely used pharmacologically active substances. It has many different physiological effects on the cardiovascular function. Also the cardiac autonomic control could be altered by caffeine consumption. However, findings regarding the effect of caffeine consumption on cardiac autonomic nervous system (ANS) activity are controversial. The aim of the present study was to assess the effects of caffeine on cardiac ANS in young healthy subjects. Methods and Materials. In sixteen healthy volunteers (7 women), age 24-35, the electrocardiogram (ECG) was recorded continuously at rest before as well as 30 min and 60 min after caffeine ingestion (200 mg of caffeine in 50 ml of water). Before each the beginning of ECG registration the arterial blood pressure was measured. As assessment of cardiac ANS activity the power spectral analysis (autoregressive spectra) and the Poincaré plot analysis of the ...
Heart rate variability (HRV), the beat-to-beat variation in either heart rate or the duration of the R-R interval - the heart period, has become a popular clinical and investigational tool. The temporal fluctuations in heart rate exhibit a marked synchrony with respiration (increasing during inspiration and decreasing during expiration - the so called respiratory sinus arrhythmia, RSA) and are widely believed to reflect changes in cardiac autonomic regulation. Although the exact contributions of the parasympathetic and the sympathetic divisions of the autonomic nervous system to this variability are controversial and remain the subject of active investigation and debate, a number of time and frequency domain techniques have been developed to provide insight into cardiac autonomic regulation in both health and disease. It is the purpose of this essay to provide an historical overview of the evolution in the concept of heart rate variability. Briefly, pulse rate was first measured by ancient Greek
BACKGROUND--Although heart rate variability has already been studied in survivors of sudden cardiac death secondary to coronary artery disease, an assessment of heart rate variability in survivors of sudden cardiac death not associated with coronary artery disease has not been made. METHODS--10 patients with aborted sudden cardiac death not associated with coronary artery disease (seven patients with primary ventricular fibrillation and three with unclassified mild cardiomyopathy) underwent two channel 24 hour Holter monitoring in a drug free state. All subjects were in sinus rhythm and had normal atrioventricular conduction and normal cardiac function. Spectral heart rate variability was analysed on a Holter analysis system and was expressed as total (0.01-1.00 Hz), low (0.04-0.15 Hz) and high (0.15-0.40 Hz) frequency components for each hour. Heart rate variability index was calculated for the 24 hour periods. 10 age and sex matched healthy subjects were taken as a control group. RESULTS--The ...
We tested the hypothesis that a single allele deletion of neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) would impair the neural control of heart rate following physical training, and that this phenotype could be restored following targeted gene transfer of nNOS. Voluntary wheel-running (+EX) in heterozygous nNOS knockout mice (nNOS(+/-), +EX; n= 52; peak performance 9.1 +/- 1.8 km day(-1)) was undertaken and compared to wild-type mice (n= 38; 9.5 +/- 0.8 km day(-1)). In anaesthetized wild-type mice, exercise increased phenylephrine-induced bradycardia by 67% (measured as heart rate change, in beats per minute, divided by the change in arterial blood pressure, in mmHg) or pulse interval response to phenylephrine by 52% (measured as interbeat interval change, in milliseconds, divided by the change in blood pressure). Heart rate changes or interbeat interval changes in response to right vagal nerve stimulation were also enhanced by exercise in wild-type atria (P | 0.05), whereas both in vivo and in vitro responses

Baseline heart rate variability (HRV) is linked to prospective cardiovascular health. We tested intensity and duration of weekly physical activity as predictors of heart rate variability in young adults. Time and frequency domain indices of HRV were calculated based on 5-min resting electrocardiograms collected from 82 undergraduate students. Hours per week of both moderate and vigorous activity were estimated using the International Physical Activity Questionnaire. In regression analyses, hours of vigorous physical activity, but not moderate activity, significantly predicted greater time domain and frequency domain indices of heart rate variability. Adjusted for weekly frequency, greater daily duration of vigorous activity failed to predict HRV indices. Future studies should test direct measurements of vigorous activity patterns as predictors of autonomic function in young adulthood.
and for each person 9. Upload results from heart rate monitors onto computer 10. Read graphs to figure out if heart rates went up For our project we decided to see if playing video games could affect a persons heart rate. We figured that playing certain video games would affect your heart rate more than others. We hypothesized that if we tested the games Mario Kart, Wii Sports Resort, and Call of Duty to see how much they would affect a persons heart rate, Call of Duty would affect a persons heart rate the most, Wii Sports Resort would cause the second highest percentage of heart rate increase, and Mario Kart would not produce much of an increase. Background Research: Video game consoles are in more than 80% of childrens bedrooms Calm games tended to not cause much of an increase in heart rate Active games (such as wii fit) tended to cause a 20% increase in heart rate Violent games tended to cause a 40% increase in heart rate Studies have shown that playing certain video games can have ...

The objective was to determine the characteristics of heart rate variability and ventricular arrhythmias prior to the onset of ventricular tachycardia (VT) in patients with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD). Sixty-eight beat-to-beat time series from 13 patients with an ICD were analyzed to quantify heart rate variability and ventricular arrhythmias. The episodes of VT were classified in one of two groups depending on whether the sinus rate in the 1 min preceding the VT was greater or less than 90 beats per minute. In a subset of patients, increased heart rate and reduced heart rate variability was often observed up to 20 min prior to the VT. There was a non-significant trend to higher incidence of premature ventricular complexes (PVCs) before VT compared to control recordings. The patterns of the ventricular arrhythmias were highly heterogeneous among different patients and even within the same patient. Analysis of the changes of heart rate and heart rate variability may have predictive

Abstract: One of the most promising non-invasive markers of the activity of the autonomic nervous system is Heart Rate Variability (HRV). HRV analysis toolkits often provide spectral analysis techniques using the Fourier transform, which assumes that the heart rate series is stationary. To overcome this issue, the Short Time Fourier Transform is often used (STFT). However, the wavelet transform is thought to be a more suitable tool for analyzing non-stationary signals than the STFT. Given the lack of support for wavelet-based analysis in HRV toolkits, such analysis must be implemented by the researcher. This has made this technique underutilized. This paper presents a new algorithm to perform HRV power spectrum analysis based on the Maximal Overlap Discrete Wavelet Packet Transform (MODWPT). The algorithm calculates the power in any spectral band with a given tolerance for the bands boundaries. The MODWPT decomposition tree is pruned to avoid calculating unnecessary wavelet coefficients, ...
Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is a common treatment method for patients with coronary artery disease (CAD), but its effect on synchronously measured heart rate variability (HRV) and pulse transit time variability (PTTV) have not been well established. This study aimed to verify whether PCI for CAD patients affects both HRV and PTTV parameters. Sixteen CAD patients were enrolled. Two five-minute ECG and finger photoplethysmography (PPG) signals were recorded, one within 24 h before PCI and another within 24 h after PCI. The changes of RR and pulse transit time (PTT) intervals due to the PCI procedure were first compared. Then, HRV and PTTV were evaluated by a standard short-term time-domain variability index of standard deviation of time series (SDTS) and our previously developed entropy-based index of fuzzy measure entropy (FuzzyMEn). To test the effect of different time series length on HRV and PTTV results, we segmented the RR and PTT time series using four time windows of 200, 100, 50 and

The importance of counterregulatory mechanisms triggered by arterial vasodilation for the antihypertensive response to the calcium entry blocking agent nifedipine was investigated in 13 men with mild to moderate essential hypertension. Blood pressure and systemic vascular resistance were significantly reduced 30 minutes after sublingual administration of 10 mg of nifedipine while heart rate, cardiac index and plasma norepinephrine concentrations increased (all p , 0.01). Also, changes in mean blood pressure correlated inversely with arterial baroreflex sensitivity (r = -0.74, p , 0.01), suggesting that arterial baroreflex mechanisms by means of sympathetic activation tend to limit the acute antihypertensive response. Blood pressure, but not systemic vascular resistance, decreased further (p , 0.01) after 6 weeks of therapy with nifedipine 20 mg three times daily, while average heart rate, cardiac index and plasma norepinephrine concentrations had returned toward pretreatment values.. Thus, a ...
ECG recordings, especially during an exercise stress test, are exposed to artifacts. The source of artifacts can be due to technical problems, biological events and errors in the automatic detection. As a result missed beats, extra beats and ectopic beats can occur. In this study analysis of missed beats is performed using time-frequency analysis. Some of the patients data had missed beats. Fourier spectral analysis was first applied to the missed beats during the resting state. The impact of missed beats using Fourier spectral analysis is significant, especially, when the missed beats are in a row. The Fourier spectral analysis does not appropriately represent heart rate variability (HRV) during and after exercise because it assumes a signal to be stationary. In addition, Fourier analysis provides information of the heart rate only in the frequency domain. Therefore, there was a need to apply time-frequency analysis to examine the effect of missed beats. For the purpose of analysis, beats were
Measurements of the distance a labeled particle of blood travels back up the descending aorta during a single diastole have been carried out at two different heart rates in each of three patients with aortic insufficiency. From these measurements, the ratios of back flow per unit time at the slow heart rate to backflow at the faster heart rate were found to be 1.61, 1.71, and 1.75. From an analysis of the hemodynamic factors involved, it seems likely that backflow is overestimated at the slow heart rates by this technique due to the development of laminar flow late in diastole.. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Intracoronary epinephrine attenuates baroreflex control of heart rate in the conscious dog. AU - Holmberg, M. J.. AU - Gorman, A. J.. AU - Cornish, K. G.. AU - Zucker, I. H.. PY - 1984. Y1 - 1984. N2 - In the present study, the reflex effects of low-dose (12.5-50 ng·kg-1·min-1) intracoronary epinephrine infusion on the arterial baroreflex control of heart rate were studied. Mean arterial blood pressure-heart rate curves were constructed by changing mean arterial blood pressure with graded occlusions of the descending aorta and inferior vena cava. Intracoronary epinephrine increased left ventricular dP/dt(max) by an average of 309 ± 67.0 mmHg/s but did not alter resting mean arterial blood pressure or heart rate. Peak sensitivity, the maximum absolute slope along the mean arterial blood pressure-heart rate curve, and heart rate range were 32.7 ± 3.2 and 26.7 ± 2.5% less during intracoronary epinephrine compared with control, respectively. Intracoronary epinephrine did not ...
The high-frequency spectral component of heart rate variability and SD1 analyzed from Poincaré plots have been previously shown to reflect the cardiac vagal outflow (29-31). Both high-frequency oscillations of heart rate and short-term heart rate oscillations (SD1) measured from return plots are almost absent after vagal blockade (30,31). The latter index (SD1) was used in this study in addition to spectral analysis because it is less sensitive to trends in heart rate itself when compared with analysis of the high-frequency power spectral component (26). The increase of heart rate itself, regardless of its origin, may also result in a reduction of these heart rate variability indexes. However, in the present study, the increase of heart rate and the decrease of high-frequency power and SD1 were not related to an increase of epinephrine or norepinephrine, suggesting that adrenomedullary sympathoexcitation was not the primary cause of altered heart rate variability, but that these changes were ...
Recent interest in autonomic nervous system dysfunction and its effect on mortality from cardiac events has led to power spectrum ECG measurements. There seems to be a significant relationship between decreased heart rate variability and mortality in ECGs recorded from patients following myocardial infarction. Further autonomic nervous system activity in patients can be evaluated by spectral frequency analysis of the ECG. This analysis is divided into ultra low, very low, low, and high frequencies. Such analysis demonstrates a marked decrease in variability in all four frequency categories in postmyocardial infarct patients. It is postulated that high-frequency power and heart rate variability are modulated by the parasympathetic nervous system, whereas low-frequency power is modulated by both the sympathetic and parasympathetic systems. This effect appears to last for at least 12 months following infarction. The recovery of normal heart rate variability and the declining rate of mortality ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Heart rate variability in preterm infants and maternal smoking during pregnancy. AU - Thiriez, Gérard. AU - Bouhaddi, Malika. AU - Mourot, Laurent. AU - Nobili, François. AU - Fortrat, Jacques Olivier. AU - Menget, Alain. AU - Franco, Patricia. AU - Regnard, Jacques. PY - 2009/6/1. Y1 - 2009/6/1. N2 - Objective: Tobacco smoke exposure increases the risk of premature birth and of dying of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). Prematurity significantly increases the risk of dying of SIDS, but mechanisms underlying this epidemiological finding are unclear. The cumulated effect of both prematurity and prenatal exposure to nicotine on autonomic heart rate control has not been studied. Methods: Using coarse-graining spectral analysis, we compared heart rate variability (HRV) indices of preterm newborns at 33-34 weeks post-conceptional age from smoking (n = 19) and non-smoking (n = 21) mothers. Assessment of tobacco exposure relied on maternal reports and newborns cotinine analysis. We ...
In western countries, sudden cardiac death (SCD) represents the most common form of cardiovascular death. SCD is often caused by ventricular arrhythmias in patients with a known history of ischemic heart disease but it may also occurs in healthy persons.. In the last years has been extensively studied the protective role of long-chain n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 LCPUFA) against SCD both in healthy persons and in patients affected by coronary artery disease.. The hypothesis that these evidences could be ascribed to an antiarrhythmic effect of n-3 LCPUFA, has been corroborated by the observation of a direct relationship between the dietary intake of these nutrients and a better cardiac autonomic control.. This pathway, in particular, has been confirmed by the analysis of changes in heart rate variability.. Most studies in this field used n-3 LCPUFA derived from fish oil, composed by a combination of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). At our knowledge there are few ...
Latest research into exercise physiology has shown that being able to exercise at 80% of your maximum heart rate will provide the most benefits as far as reducing cardiovascular disease, serious disease risk, lessing stress responses in your body and general well being.. We do not really mind what type of exercise you do, as long as your heart rate gets up close to the guidelines below and utilising interval training - where you go hard, then rest ie. exercising in bursts.. To determine maximum heart rate (HR):. 220 - your age.. Exercise plan:. 60 seconds at 65% of max HR, return to resting, x 6 times. Increase to 70%, then 80% as your fitness increases.. Any other questions? Pop in for an appointment for clarification.. Back to Blog ...
In 21 healthy full-term neonates, 122 10-min recordings of ECG and CO2 respirograms were made during the first 5 days of life. Records were analyzed with a digital computer, using stochastic point process analysis techniques to characterize variations in heart and respiration rates. Mean heart rate was 114/min, and mean respiration rate 46/min. For heart rate, the root mean square (RMS) difference from mean (overall variation) was 40 msec, and interval-to-interval variation (RMS of successive differences) was 25 msec; the corresponding values for respiration rate were 598 msec and 770 msec, respectively. Periodic heart rate variation (periodicities in the range 1-2 sec or 10-29 sec) was found in 8 records from 7 infants. Random heart rate variation was usually Markoffian type, inter-interval dependence extending over at least 5 successive intervals. No significant periodic variation or interdependence of intervals was detected in respiration rate, which thus appears to have certain Gaussian ...
Elevated resting heart rate is associated with greater risk of cardiovascular disease and mortality. In a 2-stage meta-analysis of genome-wide association studies in up to 181,171 individuals, we identified 14 new loci associated with heart rate and confirmed associations with all 7 previously established loci. Experimental downregulation of gene expression in Drosophila melanogaster and Danio rerio identified 20 genes at 11 loci that are relevant for heart rate regulation and highlight a role for genes involved in signal transmission, embryonic cardiac development and the pathophysiology of dilated cardiomyopathy, congenital heart failure and/or sudden cardiac death. In addition, genetic susceptibility to increased heart rate is associated with altered cardiac conduction and reduced risk of sick sinus syndrome, and both heart rate-increasing and heart rate-decreasing variants associate with risk of atrial fibrillation. Our findings provide fresh insights into the mechanisms regulating heart rate and
AIM: The aim of this study was to investigate heart rate variability (HRV) in a clinical sample of female adolescents with anxiety disorders (AD) and/or major depressive disorder (MDD) compared with healthy controls and to assess the effect of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) on HRV.. METHODS: Heart rate variability was measured in adolescent female psychiatric patients with AD and/or MDD (n = 69), mean age 16.8 years (range: 14.5-18.4), from 13 out-patient clinics and in healthy controls (n = 65), mean age 16.5 years (range: 15.9-17.7). HRV was registered in the sitting position during 4 min with no interventions.. RESULTS: Logarithmically transformed high frequency HRV (HF), low frequency HRV (LF) and standard deviation of inter beat intervals (SDNN) were lower in the clinical sample compared with the controls (Cohens d for HF = 0.57, LF = 0.55, SDNN = 0.60). This was not explained by body mass index, blood pressure or physical activity. Medication with SSRI explained 15.5% of ...
BACKGROUND: Epilepsy patients may have an impaired autonomic cardiac control, which has been associated with an increased incidence of sudden unexpected death among people with epilepsy (SUDEP). The risk of SUDEP is particularly high among epilepsy surgery candidates with refractory epilepsy. This risk seems to be reduced after successful surgery but whether this is an effect of surgery or reflects pre-existing differences between good and poor responders is under debate.. METHODS: We used spectral analysis to analyze prospectively heart rate variability (HRV) preoperatively in 21 consecutive patients with temporal lobe epilepsy who were planned for epilepsy surgery. The presurgical HRV based on ambulatory 24 hours EKG recordings was analyzed in relation to seizure control at 1 year after surgery.. RESULTS: Patients had significantly lower SD of RR-intervals, total power, very low frequency power and low frequency power than matched healthy controls. Patients with good outcome of surgery (Engel ...

Samsung took a big step into the health and fitness market with its Galaxy S5. One of the devices main selling points is its built-in heart rate sensor. This new feature allows users to check their heart rate using the preinstalled S Health app, but the truth is, nothing special is happening here. According to Samsungs official Galaxy S5 page, its the first smartphone with a built-in heart rate sensor, but technically almost any device with a camera and flash is capable of providing this functionality. The same sensor is found on Samsungs new Gear smart watch lineup and certainly makes more sense ona wearable device, but unfortunately its nothing more than a gimmick on the Galaxy S5.. The heart rate sensor found on the back is no different than what many third party apps have offered for quite some time. Runtastics Heart Rate Monitor app is a perfect example. This app uses the LED flash and camera on almost any smartphone to read your heart rate, and it works surprisingly well.. As shown ...

Also, there is significant different between heart rate after testing and heart rate after two minutes testing among evening and late-night exercises [HR ...
Aims A very limited number of prospective studies have reported conflicting data on the relation between heart rate and diabetes risk. Our aim therefore was to determine in a large, national, population-based cohort if heart rate predicts the development of diabetes. Methods The Australian Diabetes Obesity and Lifestyle study followed up 6537 people over 5years. Baseline measurements included questionnaires, anthropometrics and blood and urine collection. Heart rate was recorded in beats per min (Dinamap). An oral glucose tolerance test was performed at baseline and follow-up, and diabetes was defined using World Health Organization criteria. Results A total of 5817 participants were eligible for analysis, 221 of whom developed diabetes. Compared with participants with a heart rate ,60bmin1, those with a heart rate 80bmin1 were more likely to develop diabetes (odds ratio1.89, 95%CI 1.073.35) over 5years, independent of traditional risk factors. This relationship was highly significant, ...
1. The purpose of this investigation was to determine non-invasively the changes in autonomic cardiovascular control observed in normal subjects submitted to acute cardiopulmonary blood volume expansion by 100° head-down tilt. The effect of head-down tilt on finger blood pressure and heart rate fluctuations was studied by means of power spectral analysis in 12 healthy men.. 2. Amplitude spectra of heart rate and blood pressure rhythmicity were estimated at the low-frequency (60-140 mHz, 10-s rhythm) and high-frequency (area under the curve at mean respiration rate ± 50 mHz) component. Transfer gain and phase were calculated between systolic blood pressure and heart rate. Forearm vascular resistance was estimated to validate the head-down procedure.. 3. Forearm vascular resistance decreased significantly from 19.82 (16.34-26.46) mmHg ml−1 min 100 ml to 18.05 (13.69-22.88) mmHg ml−1 min 100 ml (P , 0.01) during head-down tilt (values are medians and 25 and 75 percentiles). The overall ...
Modern heart rate monitors usually comprise two elements: a chest strap transmitter [needs update] and a wrist receiver (which usually is a smartwatch). In early plastic straps, water or liquid was required to get good performance. Later units have used conductive smart fabric with built-in microprocessors that analyze the EKG signal to determine heart rate. More recent devices use optics to measure heart rate using Infrared light.[2] This is achieved by production of infrared light by an internal bulb, as Infrared light is absorbed by the blood, a sensor measures the amount that the infrared light is darkened by. If it is significantly darker, due the pulse causing a temporary increase in the amount of blood that is travelling through the measured area, that is counted as a heart pulse.[2]. Strapless heart rate monitors (often referred to as wearables) now allow the user to just touch two sensors on a smartwatch display for a few seconds to view heart rate data. These are popular for comfort ...
The ability of the human organism to withstand physical strain is one of the most important characteristics of health. We can easily distinguish a person who is able to run 10 miles from an individual that cant even walk 100 yards without a break. The difference between them is in their physical fitness. But what is physical fitness? According to physiology it is first of all the ability of the cardio vascular system to provide the function of the organism in the state of heightened strain. Therefore, in assessing the state of the cardio vascular system we are also assessing the state of physical fitness. In recent times, for this purpose, the method of analyzing heart rate variability during the orthostatic challenge test became widely used.. Heart Rate Variability It is well‐known that orthostatic challenge test is one of the most informative methods used to detect subtle changes in cardiovascular function and specifically its regulatory mechanisms. When bodys position is changed from ...
The use of hand tools in industry is one of the many risky issues for musculoskeletal disorders. Working postures during handling tools assumed may be reiterated several times a day, every day for several years and can be predicted to affect the musculature of the workers. Using physiological demands to assess coordinated posture and anthropometry in manual handling tools has not received much attention in literature. Therefore, the aim of this research is to study the effects of combined postures of trunk and shoulder besides the individuals anthropometry on heart rate in vertical drilling task. Ten male students participated in this experiment and ANOVA (Analysis of variance) was used to analyse the data. The results showed that shoulder flexion and trunk inclining forward have a significant effect on heart rate (P , 0.01). Also, the anthropometric in terms of individuals weight and max grip strength has a negative correlation with heart rate (R2 = 0.46 and 0.13 respectively).. ...
Choir singing is known to promote wellbeing. One reason for this may be that singing demands a slower than normal respiration, which may in turn affect heart activity. Coupling of heart rate variability (HRV) to respiration is called Respiratory sinus arrhythmia (RSA). This coupling has a subjective as well as a biologically soothing effect, and it is beneficial for cardiovascular function. RSA is seen to be more marked during slow-paced breathing and at lower respiration rates (0.1 Hz and below). In this study, we investigate how singing, which is a form of guided breathing, affects HRV and RSA. The study comprises a group of healthy 18 year olds of mixed gender. The subjects are asked to; (1) hum a single tone and breathe whenever they need to; (2) sing a hymn with free, unguided breathing; and (3) sing a slow mantra and breathe solely between phrases. Heart rate (HR) is measured continuously during the study. The study design makes it possible to compare above three levels of song structure. In a

Roberts , M.D., a professor in the Department of Family Medicine and Community Health at the University of Minnesota. (
  • When the resting heart rate consistently dips below 60, you can experience bradycardia, a serious problem in which the heart doesn't pump enough oxygen-rich blood to the body. (
  • If another medical problem, such as hypothyroidism or an electrolyte imbalance, is causing a slow heart rate, treating that problem may cure the bradycardia. (
  • Bradycardia is often the result of another heart condition, so taking steps to improve your heart health will usually improve your overall health. (
  • Exposure to ENDS aerosol or traditional cigarette smoke rapidly slowed the heart rate (bradycardia) in mice. (
  • Bradycardia is defined as a slow heart rate or irregular heart rhythm. (

  • Personal trainers and exercise instructors design fitness programs around the maximum heart rate, often telling people to wear heart rate monitors and then to exercise at 80 to 90 percent of the maximum in brief spurts to build aerobic capacity and at 65 percent to 75 percent to build endurance. (
  • Some heart monitors built into exercise machines even shut the machines down if an exerciser exceeds 90 percent of the predicted maximum. (
  • The Internet was flooded with reports this week from early adapters who had trouble using the Apple watch heart monitors because, they claimed, of their tattoos. (
  • Of course, the technology used to read someone's heart rate is not exclusive to Apple - and therefore other smart watches with built-in heart rate monitors will also be affected. (
  • There are so many heart rate monitors on the market, but many are very inaccurate," Hu said, and that's no exaggeration. (
  • There are also heart rate monitors on the market. (
  • Commercial heart rate monitors are also available, consisting of a chest strap with electrodes. (
  • Heart rate monitors allow accurate measurements to be taken continuously and can be used during exercise when manual measurement would be difficult or impossible (such as when the hands are being used). (
  • The heart rate can vary according to the body's physical needs, including the need to absorb oxygen and excrete carbon dioxide . (
  • The heart rate can vary according to the body's physical needs, including the need to absorb oxygen and excrete carbon dioxide, but is also modulated by a myriad of factors including but not limited to genetics, physical fitness, stress or psychological status, diet, drugs, hormonal status, environment, and disease/illness as well as the interaction between and among these factors. (
  • Based on your body's maximum oxygen consumption, or VO2max, heart rate analysis is an easy way to see how fit you really are. (
  • Your resting heart rate refers to the body's lowest heart rate, when your body is close to absolute rest. (
  • Abnormal HRV signifies that the body's stress response is not optimal resulting in potentially more harmful effects of chronic stress and increased risk of stress-related medical or mental disorders such as heart disease, depressed mood, generalized anxiety, panic disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder ( PTSD ). (
  • Every person has a maximum heart rate - their body's maximum value to not exceed. (
  • This data lets you know if you're overtrained and how the heart adapts to your body's need for oxygen during exercise. (
  • During rest, your body will keep the heart rate in a low range to match the body's metabolic needs. (
  • Another way to think of it is that power is the work you're doing, while your heart rate is your body's response to that work. (

  • Equipped with hardware, such as accelerometer and heart rate sensor, wearables enable measuring physical activities and heart rate. (
  • Low pulse rate can be caused by a disruption of the electrical impulses that keep your heart in rhythm. (
  • Low pulse rate is among the many symptoms of hypothyroidism. (
  • There is no direct correlation between the two, and high blood pressure , or hypertension, does not necessarily result in a high pulse rate, and vice versa. (
  • His pulse rate hit 200 at 90 seconds into the test,'' Dr. Kirkendall said. (
  • Then your pulse rate variations are all recorded. (
  • My graphs, shows the pulse rate increases, though out the exercise. (
  • This method may be inaccurate in cases of low cardiac output, as happens in some arrhythmias , where the heart rate may be considerably higher than the pulse rate. (
  • The pulse rate (which in most people is identical to the heart rate) can be measured at any point on the body where an artery 's pulsation is transmitted to the surface - often as it is compressed against an underlying structure like bone. (
  • While heart rhythm is regulated entirely by the sinoatrial node under normal conditions, heart rate is regulated by sympathetic and parasympathetic input to the sinoatrial node. (

  • The results of some new research, to be presented at the 2017 American Heart Association's Scientific Sessions, reveal how electronic cigarettes affect heart rhythm and function in mice. (
  • Your Apple Watch will occasionally look at your heart beat to check for an irregular rhythm that might be atrial fibrillation (AFib). (
  • AFib is a type of irregular heart rhythm. (
  • It's a common form of irregular heart rhythm where the upper chambers of the heart beat out of sync with the lower chambers. (
  • Irregularities in heart rhythm become more common as people get older. (
  • In some instances, the notification may indicate the presence of an irregular heart rhythm other than AFib. (
  • Atrial fibrillation (AF or afib) is an abnormal heart rhythm (cardiac arrhythmia) which involves the two small, upper heart chambers (the atria). (
  • Both ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation are medical emergencies, according to doctors at the Mayo Clinic, as they can lead to sudden death if a normal heart rhythm is not restored. (
  • An EKG measures the electrical signals that control heart rhythm. (

  • Researchers believe the increase in heart rate with alcohol consumption could lead to heart rhythm disorders in the longer-term. (
  • ANAHEIM, California, Nov. 12, 2017 -- Electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) such as e-cigarettes, affect heart rhythm and cardiovascular function in mice, according to preliminary research presented at the American Heart Association's Scientific Sessions 2017, a premier global exchange of the latest advances in cardiovascular science for researchers and clinicians. (
  • These findings suggest that exposure to ENDS aerosols may trigger cardiovascular effects and may increase the risks of developing irregular heart rhythm and overall cardiovascular disease. (
  • You should also be concerned about your heart rate if you notice your heart beating on an irregular rhythm frequently. (
  • By sending an impulse when the heart's rhythm is slow or interrupted, it effectively regulates the heart rate automatically, freeing you to enjoy your regular pursuits activities. (

  • The new research - which will be presented at the American Heart Association's (AHA) Scientific Sessions 2017 , held in Anaheim, CA - brings us one step closer to understanding these health effects, with a focus on their impact on the cardiovascular system. (
  • Heart rate is a good indicator of two things: your overall cardiovascular fitness and how hard you're working," Corey Phelps, an NASM-certified personal trainer and creator of Cultivate365 , an online fitness and mental health platform for women, told POPSUGAR. (
  • Next is the aerobic zone, which is achieved at 70 to 80 percent of your max heart rate - this one really begins to challenge your cardiovascular fitness, making it ideal for a moderately paced run or other exercises intended to improve your strength and endurance, Corey explained. (
  • Now for the second problem: Using heart ranges to define narrow training objectives like the "fat-burning zone," or the "cardio training zone," as if in one zone all you are doing is using fat exclusively and the other zone is the only place you find cardiovascular improvements. (
  • Generally, a lower heart rate at rest implies more efficient heart function and better cardiovascular fitness. (
  • Taking a daily supplement of fish or soy oil may help reduce the risk of suffering an adverse cardiovascular event, such as arrhythmia or sudden death, specially in persons with known cardiovascular disease or at increased risk for it, such as those with lipid disorders, advanced age, hypertension, a history of smoking, and family history of heart disease. (

  • If you have coronary heart disease, a congenital heart defect, or other heart conditions, your doctor may advise you not to do it. (
  • Since the 1970s, national attention on the dangers of cigarette smoking and uncontrolled high blood pressure has led to a significant decline in deaths from coronary heart disease and heart attack, but 'heart disease' includes other conditions which have not decreased as much, said Dr. Donald A. Barr of Stanford University School of Medicine in California, who wrote an editorial accompanying the new study. (
  • Heart failure) is projected to increase over the next couple of decades, while coronary heart disease is expected to decline,' he said. (
  • Combining heart failure and coronary heart disease under the global term 'heart disease' combines good news with not so good news,' Barr said. (
  • The Framingham Heart Study is a prospective epidemiological study established in 1948 to evaluate potential risk factors for coronary heart disease. (
  • The device on the strap uses electrical signals to read your heart rate during exercise. (
  • It can lead to efficient use of your time while determining the right heart rate zone to maintain during exercise. (

  • Your heart rate not only controls your body but also the efficiency of your exercise. (
  • I want to track my heart rate at the 'Max HR' & immediately after exercise (and save the reading with the tag that says 'after sport' or 'Max HR'). But when I see an ad instead of the monitor, I often accidentally press the wrong thing. (
  • Your heart rate drops faster after exercise when you're fit. (
  • My concern is that my heart rate is always low like between 70-125,even if I exercise a lot. (
  • Your doctor can help determine the best target heart rate for you, or you can use general target zone guidelines to determine your target exercise heart rate based on your age. (
  • If you feel this guide doesn't fit your personal exercise heart rate target for moderate or vigorous exercise, your doctor will be able to work with you on an individual basis to help determine the target heart rate range that is best for you. (
  • You will see articles that will explain young altheletes may have a low heart rate which is normal for them but these are the road warriors that take exercise seriously - the runners, the bikers, the triathalon people. (
  • When people exercise in their "target heart zone," they gain the most benefits and improve their heart's health. (
  • In these cases you should gradually lower your resting heart rate through exercise. (
  • To use it to your advantage, you first have to calculate your maximum heart rate - that's the maximum number of times your heart should beat per minute during exercise - by subtracting your age from 220. (
  • The overreaction to these problems has taken the form of proposing that heart-rate training doesn't matter when it comes to measuring exercise intensity, especially with the rise in popularity of high-intensity interval training, where the directive is a straightforward "go as hard as you can. (
  • Not everyone needs to use heart rate to measure intensity, as their goals may not be that specific or their starting health status may not be questionable enough to warrant needing a definitive intensity range to ensure safety when starting an exercise program. (

  • There is a need, a clinical and societal need, to estimate the maximum heart rate,'' said Dr. Douglas Seals, an exercise physiologist at the University of Colorado. (
  • But if the heart rate formula is wrong, these exercise prescriptions are misguided. (
  • They were trying to determine how strenuously heart disease patients could exercise. (
  • Best measured before you start moving around first thing in the morning, a resting heart rate is much different than what you'll see during exercise. (
  • The American Heart Association (AHA) states that the maximum heart rate during exercise should be roughly equal to 220 bpm minus the age of the person, which is one very basic method to estimate your max. (
  • For my age it was calculated that I should be reaching 144 in order to burn fat, but it is impossible to keep my heart rate this low when I exercise. (
  • Your heart rate adapts to your daily activities -- including exercise and rest -- making the first reading of the morning indicative of your overall health after an extended period of rest. (
  • Does Exercise Lower the Heart Rate? (
  • When you exercise , focus on breathing instead of your heart rate. (

(
  • The more you exercise on a regular basis, the more you should see both your resting heart and your recovery rate drop. (
  • Data review includes total exercise time, average heart rate, and time in zone for timed sessions. (
  • To find your recovery heart rate, first take and record your pre-exercise heart rate. (
  • Your heart rate will be monitored during your exercise session. (

  • This is your recovery heart rate: the amount of time it took for your heart to recover from exercise. (
  • Your heart rate should return to pre-exercise level within 10 to 15 minutes after exercise. (
  • During stress or exercise, your body will cause the heart rate to increase in order to meet metabolic needs. (
  • Compared with power, heart rate (HR) is less precise, but you can still use it to exercise more effectively. (
  • Aim - To determine the effect of intensity of exercise on heart rate. (
  • When exercising the heart rates response is determined by the amount of exercise being done, the greater the demand the greater the response. (
  • Ptdirect, 2010) This is because the faster the exercise the more work the heart has to do in order to make the blood flow, if the lungs are being used more for breathing the heart rate will increase more than the usual heart rate. (
  • Introduction: Tokui and Hirakoba (2007) define exercise efficiency as the given rate of power output in relation to the amount of energy expended in a given time (as cited in Gaesser and Brooks, 1975). (
  • MHR is used as a base number to calculate target heart rate for exercise (see below). (
  • During the test, the intensity of exercise is periodically increased (if a treadmill is being used, through increase in speed or slope of the treadmill) until the subject can no longer continue, or until certain changes in heart function are detected in the ECG (at which point the subject is directed to stop). (

  • Something strange has happened to my entire Heart Rate range, all the zones. (
  • Heart-rate data from the field test given to athletes (see below) correlates strongly with power data from the same test, which means that for riders without power meters, I can use heart rate to determine ideal intensity levels (or zones) for their training. (
  • If you don't know your heart rate zones , your power data is just a number without context. (
  • Then, use the higher of the two average heart rates to calculate your ideal training zones, as indicated by the chart below. (
  • Your field-test heart rate will not the same as your lab-measured anaerobic threshold heart rate, so keep in mind that the heart rate zones based on calculations from this field test are specific to this test only. (
  • During workouts, use Fitbit's heart rate zones to gauge how much effort you're exerting and see if you should dial it up or dial it back. (
  • According to the AHA , moderate-intensity workouts should be closer to the lower end of the target heart rate range that correlates with your age. (
  • Within the higher end of the range is the target heart rate for high-intensity, vigorous workouts. (

  • However, a heart rate that is lower than 60 per minute does not necessarily mean that it is abnormal. (
  • A higher heart rate variability (HRV) suggests a relaxed, low-stress physiological milieu, while a lower HRV indicates a need for recovery, rest, and sleep. (
  • Regular endurance training can reduce your heart rate, but how low can you go? (
  • One way of checking physical activity intensity is to determine whether your pulse or heart rate is within the target zone during physical activity. (
  • For moderate-intensity physical activity , your target heart rate should be between 64% and 76% 1 , 2 of your maximum heart rate. (
  • This shows that moderate-intensity physical activity for a 50-year-old person will require that the heart rate remains between 109 and 129 bpm during physical activity. (

  • Not every 50-year-old has the same fitness level, and maximum heart rate is determined by more than just the number of years you have been alive. (
  • Just getting the heart to its actual maximum rate is an immense effort and holding it there for even a minute is so painful that it is all but inconceivable for anyone who is not supremely motivated, Dr. Kirkendall said. (
  • The question of how to find maximum heart rates is not just of academic interest, medical experts say. (
  • And while Dr. Seals is now proposing a new formula to use as a general guide, he and others say it is simplistic to rely on a single formula to predict the maximum heart rates of individuals. (
  • We drew a line through the points and I said, 'Gee, if you extrapolate that out it looks like at age 20, the heart rate maximum is 200 and at age 40 it's 180 and at age 60 it's 160,'' Dr. Haskell said. (
  • A critical part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle is to know what your maximum heart rate is. (
  • So, that being said, here is how to figure out YOUR personal maximum heart rate. (
  • You can estimate your maximum heart rate based on your age. (
