Spectral analysis of the cardiac event sequence following mental loading



Spectral analysis of the cardiac event sequence following mental loading



Automedica (London) 2(3): 171-186



There is increasing evidence that psychosocial environment is a major factor in the etiology of [human] essential hypertension. There have been relatively few quantitative studies of the effect of psychological stress or cardiovascular regulatory processes in man. This may be due to the fact that invasive measurements, particularly intra-arterial blood pressure, are precluded by the psychosomatic effects of catheterization. Of the relatively few noninvasive cardiovascular measurements, the ECG is by far the most accessible and reliable. Topics discussed include: signal processing of the cardiac sequence; blood pressure fluctuations; and cardiovascular disturbances [hypertension] of psychological origin.
