Abstract Share this page

Heart rate variability (HRV) indices the vegetative nervous system and is connected with cardiovascular and nervous diseases [1]. Cardiovascular risk can either be assessed by prospectively analyzing end-points or by risk scores indicating the cumulative risk of an individual [2]. Different scores predict for cardiovascular events in a different way, e.g. PROCAM predicts for risk of myocardial infarction (MI) while the SCORE algorithm predicts for death due to MI and not for disease and Framingham can predict for both, hard coronary heard disease (CHD) or CHD, depending on the applied formula.
