An Analysis of Heart-Rate Variability after Myocardial Infarction
The measurement and analysis of heart-rate variability (HRV) have been used in many studies where the effects of physiological control systems upon heart rate were under investigation (Kitney and Rompleman, 1980). Studies carried out have concentrated upon using ‘normal’ subjects to investigate these phenomena and these are well documented. This investigation applies analysis techniques to recent myocardial infarction (MI) victims and correlates results obtained with other physiological factors in an attempt to obtain a prognosis.
