Resting Heart Rate in Cardiovascular Disease
https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0735109707018232
Journal of the American College of Cardiology;

Dec 11th, 2006 - The importance of resting heart rate (HR) as a prognostic factor and potential therapeutic target is not yet generally accepted. Recent large epidemiologic studies have confirmed earlier studies that showed resting HR to be an independent predictor of cardiovascular and all-cause mortality in men and women with and without diagnosed cardiovascular disease. Clinical trial data suggest that HR re...

Clinical Physiology and Functional Imaging; Björkander I, Forslund L et. al.

Mar 3rd, 2009 - Heart rate variability (HRV) reflects the balance between cardiac parasympathetic and sympathetic autonomic influences. Reduced HRV has adverse prognostic implications. The time course for changes in HRV over prolonged periods of time and the influence of an acute coronary event on HRV are not well established. Heart rate variability was assessed in patients with chronic stable angina pectoris,...
