AIM: To assess the clinical efficacy of orthostatic training (OT) and its effect on the autonomic activity. METHODS: OT was performed in 38 patients (13 males, age 36.4 ± 15.2 years). Baroreflex sensitivity (BRS), heart rate variability and quality of life (SF 36) was assessed before and after 6 months of OT. Patients with no recurrence of syncope and reduction of the presyncope number to one-third or less were classified as responders. RESULTS: Compliance to OT was low...

Finding sensitive and specific markers for sports-related concussion is both challenging and clinically important. Such biomarkers might be helpful in the management of patients with concussion (i.e. diagnosis, monitoring and risk prediction). Among many parameters, blood flow-pressure metrics and heart rate variability (HRV) have been used to gauge concussion outcomes. Reports on the relation between HRV and both acute and prolonged concussion recovery are conflicting. While some authors report on differences in the low-frequency (LF) component of HRV during postural manipulations and postexercise conditions, others observe no significant differences in various HRV measures...

The dorsal hippocampus (DH) is involved in the modulation of the cardiac baroreflex function. There is a wide expression of the NMDA and AMPA/Kainate receptors within the DH. Glutamate administration into the DH triggers both tachycardia and pressor responses. Moreover, GABAergic interneurons and endocannabinoid system play an important role in modulation of the activity of glutamatergic neurons within the DH. Therefore, the present work aimed to evaluate the involvement of the glutamatergic, GABAergic, and endocannabinoid neurotransmissions within the DH in cardiac baroreflex function in rats...

It has long been known from microneurographic recordings in human subjects that activity of postganglionic sympathetic axons occurs as spontaneous bursts, with muscle sympathetic nerve activity (MSNA) exhibiting strong cardiac rhythmicity via the baroreflex and skin sympathetic nerve activity (SSNA) showing much weaker cardiac modulation. Here we review the firing properties of single sympathetic neurons, obtained using highly selective microelectrodes. Individual vasoconstrictor neurons supplying muscle or skin, or sudomotor neurones supplying sweat glands, always discharge with a low firing probability (~30%) and at very low frequencies (~0...

Activation of baroreceptors in the carotid modulates the autonomic nervous system. Baroreflex activation therapy (BAT), which activates baroreceptors in the carotid, has become available in the treatment of resistant hypertension. Besides this, a carotid implant modulating baroreceptors as well as pharmacological modulation of carotid bodies were quite recently presented. This review will underscore currently available and promising approaches that activate baroreceptors in the carotid, and thereby contribute to beneficial effects in patients with arterial hypertension, and discusses potential organoprotective BAT effects beyond blood pressure (BP) reduction...

PURPOSE: To investigate potential sex-related differences on spontaneous cardiac baroreflex sensitivity (cBRS) following acute isometric handgrip (IHG) exercise. METHODS: Twenty men (23±3 years) and 20 women (24±4 years) randomly performed four sets of 2-min IHG exercise (two sets for each limb) at 30% maximum voluntary contraction (MVC - experimental) or 3% MVC (sham). Beat-to-beat heart rate (HR) and arterial blood pressure (BP) were monitored using finger photoplethysmography before and 10-, 20-, and 30-min following IHG...

A defining feature of physiological systems under the neuroautonomic regulation is their dynamical complexity. The most common approach to assess physiological complexity from short-term recordings, i.e. to compute the rate of entropy generation of an individual system by means of measures of conditional entropy (CE), does not consider that complexity may change when the investigated system is part of a network of physiological interactions. This study aims at extending the concept of short-term complexity towards the perspective of network physiology, defining multivariate CE measures whereby multiple physiological processes are accounted for in the computation of entropy rates...

The progression of heart failure with reduced ejection fraction is promoted by sympathovagal imbalance. Baroreflex activation therapy (BAT) by the electrical stimulation of baroreceptors at the carotid sinus significantly improved exercise capacity and NT-proBNP levels in a randomized trial; however, no significant difference in left ventricular ejection fraction (LV-EF) between groups was found. Here, we report the case of a 30-year-old man with a long history of dilated cardiomyopathy and severely reduced LV-EF despite optimal medical therapy, who was treated with BAT since October 2014 and showed a remarkable improvement in both symptoms and LV-EF under this treatment...

Although electrical activation of the carotid sinus baroreflex (baroreflex activation therapy) is being explored as a device therapy for resistant hypertension, possible effects on baroreflex dynamic characteristics of interaction between electrical stimulation and pressure inputs are not fully elucidated. To examine whether the electrical stimulation of the baroreceptor afferent nerve impedes normal short-term arterial pressure (AP) regulation mediated by the stimulated nerve, we electrically stimulated the right aortic depressor nerve (ADN) while estimating the baroreflex dynamic characteristics by imposing pressure inputs to the isolated baroreceptor region of the right ADN in nine anesthetized rats...

Early detection of hemorrhage remains an open problem. In this regard, blood pressure has been an ineffective measure of blood loss due to numerous compensatory mechanisms sustaining arterial blood pressure homeostasis. Here, we investigate the feasibility of causality detection in the heart rate and blood pressure interaction, a closed-loop control system, for early detection of hemorrhage. The hemorrhage was simulated via graded lower-body negative pressure (LBNP) from 0 to -40 mmHg. The research hypothesis was that a significant elevation of causal control in the direction of blood pressure to heart rate (i...

BACKGROUND: Mean values of hemodynamic variables are poorly effective in evaluating an actual recovery of the short-term autonomic mechanisms for blood pressure (BP) and heart rate (HR) regulation. The aim of this work is to analyze the responses to therapy in the early phase of septic shock in order to verify possible associations between BP recovery and BP autonomic control. METHODS: This is an ancillary study from the multicenter prospective observational trial Shockomics (NCT02141607)...

The available studies on cerebrovascular reactivity and cerebral oxygenation in obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) patients brought conflicting results, yet the overall evidence suggests that resting state cerebral perfusion is diminished in these patients. Interestingly, in a group of healthy professional breath-hold divers who are exercising very long apnoeas - episodes corresponding to the ones observed in patients with OSA - demonstrated that cerebral oxygenation may remain stable at the expense of extreme sympathetic nervous system (SNS) activation...

We tested whether hypertension favors the development of additional cardiometabolic changes in fructose-fed ovariectomized rats and how it affects aerobic exercise training (ET) effects. All rats received fructose in drinking water (10%) beginning at weaning, were ovariectomized at 10 weeks of age and divided into the normotensive sedentary (NFOS) and trained (NFOT) and hypertensive sedentary (HFOS) and trained (HFOT) groups. ET was performed on a treadmill. Arterial pressure (AP) was directly recorded; heart rate and AP variabilities were analyzed...

OBJECTIVES: Anthroposophic therapeutic speech (ATS) has been shown to positively influence heart rate variability (HRV) and cardiorespiratory coordination in healthy volunteers. This prospective, exploratory, pre-post study was performed to investigate ATS effects on baroreflex sensitivity (BRS), heart rate (HR), HRV by standard deviation of beat to beat intervals (SDNN), blood pressure (BP), and mood in hypertensive patients. DESIGN: Patients received three ATS treatments, alternating with three sham interventions (control)...

BACKGROUND: Reduced baroreflex sensitivity (BRS) has been reported in patients with acute cardiovascular events. We tested the hypothesis that BRS is substantially reduced in patients with spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) and that BRS can predict treatment outcomes. METHODS: We examined BRS and other cardiovascular autonomic parameters in 35 patients with ICH over the course of 30 days. Cardiovascular autonomic parameters were also evaluated in 30 healthy volunteer subjects during the study period...

Very preterm infants have an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, however the effects of a late preterm birth on future cardiovascular function are not known. We hypothesized that well describes impairments in heart rate variability and baroreflex sensitivity would persist into adulthood following a late preterm birth. To test this hypothesis sheep born preterm (0.9 gestation: 9M, 7F) or term (11M, 6F) underwent surgery at 14 months of age for insertion of femoral arterial and venous catheters and femoral flow probe...

The frequent accompaniment of hypertension by orthostatic circulatory disorders prompted us to investigate the effect of repeated and sustained head-up and head-down tilt positions on cardiovascular responses in spontaneously hypertensive rats vs. Wistar rats using radiotelemetric implants. Repeated orthostasis caused a transient elevation in blood pressure (7.3±1.7 mmHg) and heart rate (39.7±10.5 BPM), while repeated antiorthostasis led only to reversible tachycardia (85.6±11.7-54.3±16.8 BPM) in spontaneously hypertensive rats...

Negative and positive muscle sympathetic nerve activity (MSNA) responders have been observed during mental stress. We hypothesized that similar MSNA response patterns could be identified during the first minute of static handgrip and contribute to the inter-individual variability throughout exercise. Supine measurements of multi-unit MSNA (microneurography) and continuous blood pressure (Finometer) were recorded in 29 young healthy men during the first (HG1) and second (HG2) minute of static handgrip (30% maximal voluntary contraction) and subsequent post-exercise circulatory occlusion (PECO)...

Objectives: Wilson's disease is reported to have autonomic dysfunction, but comprehensive evaluation of autonomic function is lacking. Additionally, little is known about the change of autonomic function of Wilson's disease during continuous therapy. We assumed that patients with Wilson's disease had both sympathetic and parasympathetic autonomic impairments, and the autonomic dysfunction might be stable across a 3-year follow-up after years of optimal treatment. Methods: Twenty-six patients with Wilson's disease and twenty-six healthy controls were recruited...

The study proposes an extension of cardiac baroreflex (cBR) sequence analysis, traditionally performed over spontaneous fluctuations of heart period and systolic arterial pressure, to typify peripheral resistance baroreflex (prBR) from spontaneous variations of peripheral resistances and diastolic arterial pressure. The prBR baroreflex sensitivity (BRSprBR) and percentage of prBR sequences (SEQ%prBR) were computed along with analogous quantities assessed over cBR (i.e. BRScBR and SEQ%cBR). The cBR and prBR were typified in healthy subjects at rest (REST) and during light bicycle ergometer exercise at 10 percent of the maximal effort (EXE)...
