During exhalation Survivors Lack of heart rate variability at a greater risk of deathheart attack survivors, the lacks variability in their heart rate are at greater risk of death, according to a paper in this week’s issue of The Lancet. The study found that the measurement of the ability of the heart rate to slow down was a better predictor of mortality after myocardial infarction than the current measure.
Georg Schmidt and his colleagues examined an alternative measure – heart rate deceleration capacity. A person’s heart rate is not perfectly regular, but varies. With the breathing cycle, the acceleration and deceleration of inspiration when you exhale Heart rate, the speed of decreasing arterial pressure and slow down with increasing arterial pressure. To vary the capacity of the heart rate is a marker for the wellbeing. (more…)
