Title:
Respiratory sinus arrhythmia as a predictor of sudden cardiac death after myocardial infarction. 
Abstract:
BACKGROUND: Measurement of high-frequency (HF) spectral power of heart rate (HR) variability has not been able to identify the patients at risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD) despite the experimental evidence of protective role of vagal activity for fatal arrhythmias. AIM: We developed a novel respiratory sinus arrhythmia (RSA) analysis method and tested its ability to predict SCD after an acute myocardial infarction.
