Heart rate variability (HRV) measures are an important means of determining cardiac autonomic function. Detecting and measuring autonomic dysfunction in the diabetic population may identify patients at risk of developing late complications of diabetes, some of which may be threatening to quality of life and general health. This may in turn enable earlier intervention and treatment for the individual patient. Diminished HRV is associated with an increased risk of coronary heart disease and death, and it is hypothesized that low HRV is indicative of poor general health. Particularly “the sudden death in bed syndrome” which has been connected to diabetic autonomic neuropathy (DAN). HRV measures are important diagnostic tools for the physician in reaching a correct diagnosis and determining whether autonomic dysfunction plays a role in the patient's symptoms.
In spite of the importance of determining DAN, testing has rarely been available in hospitals and outpatient settings due to very time consuming and costly devices. The introduction of this handheld device HRV504 is a simple but efficient equipment for the management of DAN.
It measures a resting ECG of 5 minutes and analyses to provide the best results with ease.
Diabetes is one of the most dangerous diseases prevalent in today's world. Diabetes is the modern day curse that is afflicting not only older people but young ones too.
