A new study has shown that short-term heart rate variability (ST-HRV) can be used to help detect sick sinus syndrome (SSS).

Heart rateScientists at the University of Wrocław in Poland have compared ST-HRV parameters in dogs with SSS or chronic mitral valve disease (CMVD) and healthy controls to verify the clinical application of ST-HRV analysis.

Useful

In an article published in the Polish Journal of Veterinary Sciences, the authors noted the study groups differed significantly in terms of both time and frequency domain ST-HRV parameters.

They concluded ST-HRV may be useful for the identification of dogs with SSS and the presence of dysautonomia in dogs with CMVD may be evaluated on ST-HRV analysis.
