[Pick Up] Pitfalls of assessment of autonomic function by heart rate variability
The fundamental framework in analyzing heart rate variability, which links low-frequency and high-frequency components of heart rate variability with sympathetic and parasympathetic autonomic divisions has developed in the 1980s. This simplified framework is no longer able to deal with much evidence about heart rate variability accumulated over the past half-century.
This review by Hayano et al. addresses the pitfalls caused by this framework and discusses the points that need attention in autonomic assessment by heart rate variability.
