A traditional Holter recording does not take into account the heart rate variability (HRV), or just some parameters that are delivered by an HRV analysis. Yet the HRV is essential for the assessment of the autonomic nervous system and complements a standard Holter diagnosis.
This is confirmed by numerous publications in this field. Moreover, Chinese physicians knew already 3000 years ago that a too regular pulse poses a deadly risk to the patient. Many Holter systems offer an HRV analysis; however, only very few systems deliver the precision required for a reliable analysis. medilog®DARWIN 2 provides you with the best beat-to-beat analysis that a non-invasive measuring method can offer. It is therefore the ideal screening tool to assess the autonomic nervous system and to complement a Holter diagnosis.
A unique tool to obtain a furtherreaching HRV analysis and to assess the sleep quality and quality of life. Thanks to the high sampling frequency and resolution (8000 Hz), the R peak is measured very accurately. The exact position of R is then stored separately and is used in the HRV analysis. The software performs the HRV analysis in the time and frequency domain. The coloured spectrogram is a new and easy method to assess the sleep quality and level of stress.
