Abstract

Spectral analysis of heart rate and arterial pressure variabilities is a powerful noninvasive tool, which is increasingly used to infer alterations of cardiovascular autonomic regulation in a variety of physiological and pathophysiological conditions, such as hypertension, myocardial infarction and congestive heart failure. A most important methodological issue to properly interpret the results obtained by the spectral analysis of cardiovascular variability signals is represented by the attribution of neurophysiological correlates to these spectral components. In this regard, recent applications of spectral techniques to the evaluation of the oscillatory properties of sympathetic efferent activity in animals, as well as in humans, offer a new approach to a better understanding of the relationship between cardiovascular oscillations and autonomic regulation.
