    Abstract

    Baroreflex sensitivity (BRS) and heart rate variability (HRV) are attenuated in cardiovascular disease and can give important prognostic information. Conventional measures of BRS require expensive or invasive equipment for the beat-to-beat measure of blood pressure (BP). We examined the possibility of developing a simple protocol that would provide a relatively standardized BP stimulus, which might obviate the need to measure BP beat-by-beat.
