Short term control of the cardiovascular system: Assessment with the isometric handgrip exercise

Abstract : This study aims at assessing the short term control of the Cardio Vascular system (CV), through a physiological test which involves strictly autonomic response: the handgrip isometric exercise, under vagal influence during the first minute. CVS parameters are extracted from RR and the arterial blood pressure (ABP) signals, respectively giving frequency and amplitude information on the CVS. Mean time series, spectral values and baroreflex sensitivity (BRS), seen as the spectral controller gain between RR and ABP, help to approach the underlying mechanisms of the autonomic control. Results give evidence of two major effects: - The relation between heart rate and contractility (positive staircase or Treppe effect). - The drop of BRS, due to the decrease of heart variability.
