 Heart Rate Variability
Heart rate variability (HRV) refers to the beat-to-beat alterations in heart rate.
RSA is predominantly mediated by respiratory gating of parasymphathetic efferent activity to the heart: vagal efferent traffic to the sinus node occurs primarily in phase with expiration and is absent or attenuated during inspiration.
Although resting heart rate does not change significantly with advancing age, there is a decline in HRV, which has been attributed to a decrease in efferent vagal tone and reduced beta-adrenergic responsiveness.
