A network physiology approach to evaluate the strength of the directed interactions among cardiac controls at sinoatrial and ventricular levels and respiration (R) is proposed. The network is composed of three nodes (i.e. sinoatrial and ventricular cardiac controls and R) and their activity is exemplified by the variability of heart period (HP), the variability of the duration of the electrical activity of the heart approximated as the temporal distance between Q-wave onset and T-wave end or apex (i.e. QTe or QTa) and thoracic movements respectively...

The inframammary fold (IMF) is the most critical visual landmark that affects final aesthetic outcome of augmentation mammoplasty and even post-mastectomy alloplastic breast reconstruction. Unfortunately, structural integrity of this landmark is greatly overlooked and very often neglected. Excessive undermining of the lower breast pole with aggressive disruption/lowering and subsequent poor reconstitution of the IMF scaffold combined with imbalanced implant-tissue dynamics may result in downward implant displacement with creep bottoming and upward tilt of the nipples...

Recurrent syncope - abrupt loss of consciousness - can have a serious impact on patients' quality of life, comparable with chronic illnesses. Vasovagal syncope (VVS) is a specific reflex syncope, in which an inappropriate reaction of the autonomic nervous system (ANS) plays a key role in the pathophysiology. In syncope diagnosis, an ideal diagnostic method should positively identify vasovagal sensitive patients, without the need to perform a specialised head-up tilt table (HUTT) test. We apply a novel methodology of multistructure index (MI) statistics for seamlessly evaluating the size spectrum of the asymmetry properties of magnitudes of neural reflexes responsible for maintaining the homeostatic dynamics of autonomic control...

Previous studies in humans have shown that gravity has little influence on the distribution of lung blood flow while changing posture from supine to prone. This study aimed to evaluate the maximal influence of posture by comparison of regional lung blood flow in the upright and head-down posture in 8 healthy volunteers, using a tilt table. Regional lung blood flow was marked by i.v. injection of macroaggregates of human albumin labeled with (99m)Tc or (113m)In, in the upright and head-down posture respectively, during tidal breathing...

Shearing of alpacas is stressful and is undertaken by restraint in the standing position, cast on the floor or on a tilt table. The objectives of the study were to evaluate and compare the stress responses between different methods. The study consisted of two parts. In part one, 15 animals were restrained applying all three methods but without shearing. In part two, 45 animals in three groups of 15 were shorn using one of the three procedures. Body temperature, heart rate, respiratory rate, salivary cortisol and faecal cortisol metabolites (FCM) were measured...

Spectral analysis of heart rate variability (HRV) is one of the most effective techniques for the assessment of the influence of the autonomic nervous system (ANS) on the heartbeat. Despite its widespread use, it has been demonstrated that HRV subdivision in the low frequency (LF) and high frequency (HF) bands does not accurately reflect separate sympathetic and parasympathetic influences, respectively, mainly due to overlap of the two branches in the low frequencies. Here we propose two novel indices, namely the instantaneous sympathetic autonomic index (SAI) and parasympathetic autonomic index (PAI), that are able to separately assess the time-varying ANS synergic functions...

The beat-to-beat variability of the QT interval (QTV) is a marker of ventricular repolarization (VR) dynamics and it has been suggested as an index of sympathetic ventricular outflow and cardiac instability. However, QTV is also affected by RR (or heart rate) variability (RRV), and QTV due to RRV may reduce QTV specificity as a VR marker. Therefore, it would be desirable to separate QTV due to VR dynamics from QTV due to RRV. To do that, previous work has mainly focused on heart rate corrections or time-invariant autoregressive models...

BACKGROUND: Recent trials have challenged the notion that very early mobility benefits patients with acute stroke. It is unclear how cerebral autoregulatory impairments, prevalent in this population, could be affected by mobilization. The safety of mobilizing patients who have external ventricular drainage (EVD) devices for cerebrospinal fluid diversion and intracranial pressure (ICP) monitoring is another concern due to risk of device dislodgment and potential elevation in ICP. We report hemodynamic and ICP responses during progressive, device-assisted mobility interventions performed in a critically ill patient with intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) requiring two EVDs...

OBJECTIVE: Pseudosyncope can be difficult to distinguish from true syncope. Often, pediatric patients with pseudosyncope undergo multiple tests and referrals before the appropriate diagnosis is reached. The purpose is to describe the utility of the head-up tilt table test to elicit the diagnosis of pseudosyncope in the pediatric population. DESIGN: Retrospective chart review from November 2012 to December 2015 of patients age ≤23 years referred for 30-minute, 80-degree tilt table test...

OBJECTIVE: It is unknown whether patient position is associated with the optimal cerebral (CePP) and coronary (CoPP) perfusion pressure. METHODS: This study utilized a randomized experimental design and anesthetized, intubated and paralyzed female pigs (n=12) (mean 42, SD 3kg). After 6min of untreated ventricular fibrillation, mechanical CPR with was performed for 3min in 0° supine position. The CPR was then performed for 5min in a position randomly assigned to either 1) head-up tilt (HUT) by three angles (30°, 45°, or 60°) or 2) head-down tilt (HDT) by three angles (30°, 45°, or 60°) and at 3) supine position between HUT and HDT positions...

Long periods of bed rest negatively affect the human body organs, notably the cardiovascular system. To avert these negative effects and promote functional recovery in patients dealing with prolonged bed rest, the goal is to mobilize them as early as possible while controlling and stabilizing their cardiovascular system. A robotic tilt table allows early mobilization by modulating body inclination, automated passive leg exercise, and the intensity of functional electrical stimulation applied to leg muscles (inputs)...

BACKGROUND: Correct evaluation of orthostatic hypotension (OH) is crucial in geriatric practice, since OH is associated with mortality and morbidity. The study aimed to determine the most appropriate method for measuring blood pressure in transition from supine to upright position in order to diagnose OH in older adults. METHODS: Active standing test (AST) and head-up tilt table (HUT) test as well as comprehensive geriatric assessment (CGA), including mini-mental state examination or the cognitive state test, mini-nutritional assessment, basic and instrumental activities of daily living, and Tinetti performance-oriented mobility assessment indexes, were performed in 290 geriatric patients...

Autonomic dysfunction contributes to health-related impairment of quality of life in the hypermobile type of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (hEDS). Typical signs and symptoms include tachycardia, hypotension, gastrointestinal dysmotility, and disturbed bladder function and sweating regulation. Cardiovascular autonomic dysfunction may present as Orthostatic Intolerance, Orthostatic Hypotension, Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, or Neurally Mediated Hypotension. The incidence, prevalence, and natural history of these conditions remain unquantified, but observations from specialist clinics suggest they are frequently seen in hEDS...

Recent studies indicate that migraine is associated with increased risk of cardiovascular diseases. However, links between autonomic cardiovascular regulation, arterial hypertension (AH) and migraine are still little explored. In this study, we evaluated autonomic regulation in migraine patients with and without hypertension. We studied 104 patients with migraine, aged 34±10 y, including 28 with and 76 without hypertension (M+AH and M-AH groups, respectively). The control group consisted of 88 healthy volunteers matched by age and sex...
