Effect of immersion, submersion, and scuba diving on heart rate variability

Abstract Background—Heart rate variability (HRV) describes the cyclic variations in heart rate and others a non-invasive tool for investigating the modulatory effects of neural mechanisms elicited by the autonomic nervous system on intrinsic heart rate.

Dominance in cardiac parasympathetic activity during real recreational SCUBA diving

Abstract: It was already established that exposure to hyperbaric conditions induces vagal-depended bradycardia but Weld study on autonomic nervous system (ANS) activity during self-contained underwater breathing apparatus (SCUBA) diving is lacking. The aim of the present study was to evaluate ANS modification during real recreational SCUBA diving using heart rate variability analysis (time-domain, frequency-domain and […]
