Clinical Guide to Cardiac Autonomic Tests
Springer Science & Business Media, Sep 30, 1998 - Medical - 423 pages
Following systematic development of technical aspects and physiological understanding, and clinical applicability of cardiac autonomic testing, this book provides a detailed guide to performing individual autonomic tests in both research and clinical settings.
The book is structured in three parts covering the physiological background of cardiac autonomic regulations, description of technology and interpretation of individual autonomic tests, and applicability of the individual tests under various clinical circumstances and in defined populations of patients.
The book is intended to serve both research and clinical cardiologists as well as research and clinical specialists of other medical fields who use the assessment of cardiac modulations to investigate the autonomic nervous system.
