Biological organisms have intrinsic control systems that act in response to internal and external stimuli maintaining homeostasis. Human heart rate is not regular and varies in time and such variability, also known as heart rate variability HRV , is not random. Physicians are always interested in predicting patient's risk of developing major and life-threatening complications. Understanding biological signals behavior helps to characterize patient's state and might represent a step toward a better care. The main advantage of signals such as HRV indexes is that it can be calculated in real time in noninvasive manner, while all current biomarkers used in clinical practice are discrete and imply blood sample analysis.
Heart rate variability HRV is the physiological phenomenon of variation in the time interval between heartbeats. It is measured by the variation in the beat-to-beat interval. Other terms used include: "cycle length variability", "RR variability" where R is a point corresponding to the peak of the QRS complex of the ECG wave; and RR is the interval between successive Rs , and "heart period variability". Methods used to detect beats include: ECG, blood pressure, ballistocardiograms ,   and the pulse wave signal derived from a photoplethysmograph PPG. ECG is considered superior [ by whom? The term "NN" is used in place of RR to emphasize the fact that the processed beats are "normal" beats.
Background : Obesity causes autonomic imbalance and decreases exercise capacity, which limit exercise and physical activity. The benefit of slow breathing has shown to enhance cardiorespiratory functions in overweight and generally obese people. Moreover, the slow breathing affects to the heart rate variability HRV , cardio ankle vascular index CAVI , respiratory muscle strength and indirect maximum oxygen consumption indirect VO2max has not been studied in female individuals with NWO. Materials and methods : Participants with NWO were divided randomly into two groups: control and intervention group, which performed breathing exercise at home. An electronic pressure transducer and cycle ergometer were applied to assess respiratory muscle strength and indirect VO2max. All measurements were recorded before and after 4 weeks when completely intervention.

Real world clinical Holter reports are often difficult to interpret from a heart rate variability HRV perspective. In many cases HRV software is absent. Step-by-step HRV assessment from clinicalHolter reports includes: making sure that there is enough usable data, assessing maximum and minimum heart rates,assessing circadian HRV from hourly average heart rates, and assessing HRV from the histogram of R-R intervals andfrom the plot of R-R intervals or heart rate vs. Two times ln SDANN is a goodsurrogate for ln ultra low frequency power and can be compared with published cut points.
Basic notions of heart rate variability and its clinical applicability. Correspondence address. Autonomic nervous system ANS plays an important role in the regulation of the physiological processes of the human organism during normal and pathological conditions. Among the techniques used in its evaluation, the heart rate variability HRV has arising as a simple and non-invasive measure of the autonomic impulses, representing one of the most promising quantitative markers of the autonomic balance.

Healthy biological systems exhibit complex patterns of variability that can be described by mathematical chaos. Heart rate variability HRV consists of changes in the time intervals between consecutive heartbeats called interbeat intervals IBIs. A healthy heart is not a metronome.
