The heart is the most vital organ of the human body It pumps Oxygen rich blood to all newlineparts of the body and supplies nutrients Hearts activities are regulated by a number of newlinecontrol mechanisms A fundamental measure of the heart activity is the heart rate Heart newlinerate is expressed as the reciprocal of the time interval between two successive R peaks newlineof the Electrocardiogram ECG The heart rate changes with the condition of the heart newlineThe variations of the heart rate are called Heart Rate Variability HRV HRV is an newlineimportant parameter for monitoring the health condition and functioning of the heart rate newlineof a subject Congestive Heart Failure CHF and Atrial Fibrillations AF lead to life newlinethreatening conditions when neglected Reliable diagnostics are important for the newlineimmediate treatment as well as for the stratification of the risk of a future life threatening newlinecondition The Heart Rate Variability HRV can be used as one of the diagnostic newlinemeasures to detect heart disorders Cardiovascular system is also controlled by newlineAutonomic Nervous System ANS ANS dysfunction may also contribute to cardiac newlinedisorders newline%%%
