Article
Purpose: The present study aimed to examine association between inflammatory and endothelial function biomarkers and indices of cardiac autonomic control in T2DM patients. Methods: 50 T2DM patients were recruited for this study. For cardiac autonomic function, cardiovascular autonomic reflex tests (CARTs) and heart rate variability (HRV) analysi...
Article
Abstract The objective of this study was to compare the cardiac autonomic control of dyslipidaemia patients engaged in different levels of physical activity and to determine the predictive ability of physical activity for cardiac autonomic dysfunction in these patients. This study also aimed to compare the cardiac autonomic control of dyslipidaemia...
Article
Background Smartphone use has increased tremendously in recent times and there are various adverse musculoskeletal consequences associated with its use. Alteration in the activation patterns of muscles in certain positions may be the reason behind the development of musculoskeletal disorders in smartphone users; however, it has not been thoroughly...
Article
Background: Post-exercise recovery phase is associated with clustering of various cardiovascular events and, therefore, monitoring of cardiac autonomic control via heart rate variability (HRV) during this phase may allow identification of autonomic alterations that are not evident under resting conditions in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) patients...
Article
Aim: To investigate the association between sleep quality outcomes and measures of cardiac autonomic function and to assess the predictive ability of sleep quality outcomes for cardiac autonomic neuropathy (CAN) in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Methods: Fifty patients with T2DM (age, 51.3±7.01years; glycemic control, 8.4±1.65%) completed the...
