Comparison of the prognostic values of invasive and noninvasive assessments of baroreflex sensitivity in heart failure

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Objectives: No studies have compared the prognostic values of invasive (phenylephrine, Phe) and noninvasive (transfer function) assessments of baroreflex sensitivity (BRS). Methods:Three hundred and one heart failure patients [age: 53±8 years, New York Heart Association class II-III: 88%, left-ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF): 28±8%] underwent an 8min ECG and arterial pressure recording, followed by Phe administration. Results: Phe-BRS and transfer function BRS (TF-BRS) could be measured in 89 and 72% of cases, respectively. The correlation and the 5-95th percentiles of the difference between the two methods were 0.61 (P
