Analysis of heart rate variability from long-term electrocardiographic recordings is a novel method of studying dynamic changes in neural cardiovascular regulation. Recent observations suggest that the dynamics of heart rate variability are different before the onset of sustained and nonsustained episodes of ventricular tachycardia. These findings support experimental observations that temporal alterations in cardiac autonomic function may be important in the triggering of ventricular arrhythmias.
