New Citations | BIOPAC in HRV Studies
Heart rate variability (HRV) is always calculated, often obtained through recording electrocardiographic (ECG) signals. HRV is a vital indicator of health and can be used to detect a variety of conditions. Here are a few studies that used BIOPAC Systems to determine ECG-derived HRV…
Fluid Replacement Strategies and Heart Rate Variability Recovery Following Prolonged Exercise in the Heat and Mild Dehydration. Physiologia, 3(1), 98-112. Manning, C. N., Morrissey, M. C., Langan, S. P., Stearns, R. L., Huggins, R. A., Curtis, R. M., Sekiguchi, Y., Laxminarayan, S., Reifman, J., Casa, D. J. (2023).
Researchers studied the relationship between HRV and fluid replacement after exercise in heat. Participants completed three different trials in heat and were then provided fluid replacement, either prescribed or ad libitum. Heart rate variability was recorded pre-trial, post-trial, and after a 24-hour period with BIOPAC, using a 3-lead electrocardiogram, MP160 data acquisition system, and AcqKnowledge software.
The Impact of Lifestyle Factors on Heart Rate Variability During the Transition from High School to College. In International Journal of Exercise Science: Conference Proceedings (Vol. 16, No. 2, p. 105). Lipsman, A., Higgins, S., Nepocatych, S., & Weaver, M. (2023).
This study aimed to determine whether there was a correlation between the transition to college and change in cardiovascular health. They examined how change of sedentary behavior (SB) related to moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA), dietary habits, and stress would affect HRV in college students. Researchers performed baseline assessments on high school seniors and followed up a year later, during the second semester of college to record the change. HRV was assessed based on ECG recordings, obtained with a BIOPAC ECG amplifier.
Statistical heart rate variability analysis for healthy person: Influence of gender and body posture. Journal of Electrocardiology, 79, 81-88. Kumar, P., Das, A. K., & Halder, S. (2023).
The purpose of this study was to determine whether gender and body posture had an effect on parasympathetic-sympathetic balance. The effect was assessed based on ECG-derived heart rate variability of 60 participants. Researchers utilized Biopac Student Lab software and hardware for their findings.
