The content will cover different aspects of heart rate variability from what HRV is, technical
differences in technology, IBI vs. RR/plethysmography vs. ECG. The measurement of HRV
including the requirement for normal sinus rhythm, beat and arrhythmia analysis and time
domain and frequency domain will also be addressed. This will be translated into the
relevance of HRV latency and the so called “ Fire of Life”. Conclusions will be drawn form
this for the practical application in sleep and recovery monitoring and diagnostics.
