Validation and General Evaluation of Parasympathetic and Sympathetic Monitoring

  • 1671 Accesses

Abstract

Part II provides validations of the P&S monitoring method. This chapter bases P&S validation on comparisons with HRV-alone techniques in response to rest, deep breathing, head-up postural change (stand), clinical examples and in an outcomes study. It ends with a short treatise on past completed validation studies and summarizes how these studies also demonstrate that the methods reduce morbidity and mortality risk, thereby improving patient outcomes.
