Heart Rate Turbulence in Patients with Respiratory Failure. [Abstract]
Journal of Electrocardiology
We sought to determine the feasibility of measuring heart rate turbulence (HRT) derived from electrocardiographic (ECG) bedside monitors in critically ill respiratory failure patients, receiving mechanical ventilation. In addition, we aimed to determine whether or not a normal HRT response was associated with patients' successful return to spontaneous breathing, also called ventilator weaning, and survival to discharge.
