In the 25 years since the first studies concerning RR interval variability in cardiac patients were published, heart rate variability has become a field of wide interest.
The aim of this text is to provide a comprehensive overview of heart rate variability, reflecting the range and complexity of this dynamic field, to guide the scientific and professional community, and also to address the need for clinical standards and future research ideas. In order to prevent erroneous conclusions and unfounded extrapolations, efforts have been made to standardise nomenclature, methods for measurement, clinical applications etc.
This text attempts to expand on the framework set forth by the joint European Society of Cadiology and North American Society for Pacing and Electrophysiology Task Force, covering facets of the field in greater detail.
The editors have assembled a team of leaders in the international arena of cardiology, reflecting all aspects of the field; mathematical, engineering, physiological and clinical, to produce a volume which will be valuable to all those participating in the diagnosis and treatment of heart rate variability.
The book does not have a dust jacket. There is slight bumping to the corners of the covers. Internally, the pages are clean and the binding is tight.
