  1. 1. Risk factors for incident heart failure and atrial fibrillation in an elderly population : The role of cardiac conduction and heart rate variability

    Author : Bozena Ostrowska; Carina Blomström Lundqvist; Lars Lind; Mikael Dellborg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; incident heart failure; incident atrial fibrillation; prediction of heart failure; short P-wave duration; heart rate variability.; Cardiology; Kardiologi;

    Abstract : Heart failure (HF) and atrial fibrillation (AF) are epidemic diseases, frequently coexisting, sharing risk factors and conferring poor prognosis. Identification of individuals at high risk of HF and AF may enable early treatment and improve the prognosis. Reliable prediction models for daily clinical practice are lacking. READ MORE

  2. 2. Spectral analysis of the heart rate variability : a methodological study

    Author : Urban Niklasson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Heart-rate variability; R-R interval; cardiac autonomic function; spectral analysis; IPFM model;

    Abstract : Heart rate and other cardiovascular variables are not steady but fluctuate over time. The evolution of computer technology the last 2 decades has made detailed analysis of the fluctuations possible and has focused the attention to the information content of the variability. READ MORE

  3. 3. Towards heart rate variability tools in p-health

    Author : Farhad Abtahi; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : Heart Rate Variability;

    Abstract : Heart rate variability (HRV) has received much attention lately, and several techniques for the analysis of HRV using time and frequency domains and non-linear methods have been developed. It has been shown that HRV can be used to monitor the autonomic nervous system (ANS) and to detect autonomic dysfunction, especially vagal dysfunction. READ MORE

  4. 4. Towards Heart Rate Variability Tools in P-Health : Pervasive, Preventive, Predictive and Personalized

    Author : Farhad Abtahi; Kaj Lindecrantz; Birgitta Janerot Sjöberg; Fernando Seoane; Annette Bruchfeld; Metin Akay; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Heart Rate Variability; Cholinergic Anti-inflammatory Pathway; Autonomic Nervous System; Vagal activity; Biofeedback; Gamification; Serious Gaming; Inflammatory Markers; Raspberry PI; Medical Technology; Medicinsk teknologi;

    Abstract : Heart rate variability (HRV) has received much attention lately. It has been shown that HRV can be used to monitor the autonomic nervous system and to detect autonomic dysfunction, especially vagal dysfunction. Reduced HRV is associated with several diseases and has also been suggested as a predictor of poor outcomes and sudden cardiac death. READ MORE

  5. 5. Heart rate variability and pacemaker treatment in children with Fontan circulation

    Author : Jenny Alenius Dahlqvist; Annika Rydberg; Urban Wiklund; Jaana Pihkala; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Congenital heart disease; Fontan circulation; heart rate variability; pacemaker; sinus node dysfunction; pediatrik; Pediatrics; kardiologi; Cardiology;

    Abstract : Background: Fontan surgery is performed in children with univentricular heart defects. Arrhythmias are frequent complications, occasionally requiring pacemaker treatment. Previous data regarding indications and risk factors for pacemaker treatment in Fontan patients is limited and conflicting. READ MORE
