1 Physiologic Mechanisms of Heart Rate Variability Harald M. Stauss, MD, PhD The University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA Demonstration of the ECG to the Royal Society in London, UK by Augustus Waller s bulldog, Jimmie, in 1909.
2 Objectives Effects of sympathetic and parasympathetic innervation on ion currents driving the slow action potentials of the sinus node. Physiologic mechanisms for the major periodicities in heart rate variability. Importance of the time delays in sympathetic and parasympathetic signal transduction for heart rate variability. Heart rate spectral analysis as indicator of cardiac autonomic balance.

4 Heart rate is almost constant in denervated hearts and intrinsic heart rate is ~100 bpm Control Subject Cardiac Transplant Patient 71 bpm 99 bpm Sands, KEF et al., Circulation 79:76-82, 1989
5 The slow action potential in the sino-atrial node 0 0 threshold 4 4 The slow response action potentials in the SA node, are characterized by a slow, spontaneous rise (depolarization) in the membrane potential during phase 4 of the action potential. Once a threshold level is reached, phase 0 of the next action potential is initiated. The important currents are I Ca, I f, and I K. I Ca causes the depolarization, I K causes the repolarization, I f (mainly Na + ) causes the slow depolarization in phase 4.

13 Day-night Periodicity N D ND N D N Heart rate, mean blood pressure, and renal sympathetic nerve activity recorded 3 weeks after implantation of catheters and electrodes in a conscious rabbit. Note the strong day-night periodicity in heart rate and mean blood pressure that are accompanied by similar oscillations in sympathetic nerve activity. Malpas SC, Am J Physiol Regul Integr Comp Physiol 286: R1-R12, 2004
14 Day-night Periodicity Day-night periodicity of heart rate is related to circadian changes in autonomic nerve activity.
15 Physiological Origin of Heart Rate Variability Day-night periodicity Respiratory sinus arrhythmia 10s rhythm and slower fluctuations
16 Respiratory Sinus Arrhythmia Respiratory sinus arrhythmia inspiration expiration inspiration Tachycardia during inspiration Bradycardia during expiration.
17 Respiratory Sinus Arrhythmia ECG respiration In Ex heart rate Young female subject with strong respiratory sinus arrhythmia
18 Inspiration Expiration P thorax Venous return P thorax Venous return
19 Venous return to the heart: respiratory pump (alternating changes in intrathoracic and abdominal pressure) Venous blood flow velocity inspiration expiration Time (s)
20 Frank-Starling Mechanism inspiration expiration During inspiration, greater venous return to the heart (preload) causes an increase in stroke volume (SV). During expiration, reduced venous return to the heart causes a decline in SV. According to: BP = SV * HR * TPR blood pressure will fluctuate with respiration.
21 Cardiopulmonary and baroreceptors detect respiratory changes in cardiac filling and arterial pressure Cardiopulmonary receptors Cardiopulmonary receptors Baroreceptors

24 Modulation of respiratory sinus arrhythmia by the Bainbridge and baroreceptor reflexes Respiratory sinus arrhythmia is characterized by a tachycardia during inspiration and a bradycardia during expiration. Increased cardiac filling during inspiration elicits a tachycardia via the Bainbridge reflex that promotes respiratory sinus arrhythmia. Increased cardiac filling during inspiration elicits an increase in stroke volume (Frank-Starling mechanism) and blood pressure. This activates the baroreflex that opposes the tachycardia caused by the Bainbridge reflex. Thus, the baroreceptor reflex limits respiratory sinus arrhythmia. The intensity (amplitude) of respiratory sinus arrhythmia can be seen as the balance of the Bainbridge reflex and the baroreceptor reflex.
25 Central respiratory and sympathetic oscillators BP cardiac SNA phrenic NA Anesthetized, paralyzed, vagotomized, and ventilated cats. Pneumothoracotomy to prevent BP variability caused by changes in intrathoracic pressure. Hyperventilation (right) silenced the central respiratory oscillator (phrenic nerve activity lost) but not the central sympathetic oscillator (oscillations in cardiac SNA maintained). Independent respiratory and sympathetic oscillators are normally entrained by peripheral inputs (cardiopulmonary receptors, baroreceptors etc.) to operate at the same frequency. Barman SM and Gebber GL, Am J Physiol 231: , 1976
26 Cardiac vagal motoneurons (N. ambiguus) are coupled to the respiratory oscillator Placement of recording electrodes in CVM in the N. ambiguus. Location verified by stimulation of peripheral vagal nerve fibers. Firing rate of CVM follows firing rate of the phrenic nerve. This respiratory rhythm persists even if the ventilator is switched off. Rentero N et al., Am J Physiol 283:R1327-R1334, 2002
27 Respiratory Sinus Arrhythmia The exact mechanisms causing respiratory sinus arrhythmia are not fully understood. Some studies suggest the existence of independent respiratory and autonomic (sympathetic and parasympathetic) oscillators in the brainstem. The central respiratory oscillator is linked to sympathetic and parasympathetic centers in the brainstem. The Bainbridge reflex and the baroreceptor-heart rate reflex normally entrain cardiac autonomic nerve activity to the rhythm of the central respiratory oscillator.

43 Summary: Autonomic Control of Heart Rate M2 ß 1 does not require 2 nd messenger camp requires 2 nd messenger camp Parasympathetic control of heart rate is faster than sympathetic control of heart rate! Levick JR, An Introduction to Cardiovascular Physiology, 2 nd edition, 1994
44 Summary Intrinsic heart rate is almost constant and ~100 bpm. Sympathetic modulation of heart rate depends on synthesis of the second messenger camp. Parasympathetic modulation of heart rate depends on opening of K ACh -channels and inhibition of camp. The major periodicities in heart rate variability include: Day-night periodicity Respiratory sinus arrhythmia 10s rhythm and slower fluctuations Sympathetic and parasympathetic nerve traffic contains frequency components at the respiratory frequency. However, only parasympathetic signal transduction is fast enough to generate respiration-related heart rate variability.

62 Cardiac Autonomic Receptor Blockades Parasympathetic (muscarinic) receptor blockade reduces LF and HF spectral power of heart rate. Sympathetic ß 1 -adrenergic receptor blockade causes an increase or decrease in LF spectral power of heart rate, depending on baseline levels of cardiac sympathetic tone. Sympathetic ß 1 -adrenergic receptor blockade does not affect HF spectral power of heart rate.

65 Summary Part II Perturbations of the sympathetic nervous system are reflected in changes in LF (~0.1 Hz) spectral power of heart rate. Cardiac autonomic blockade experiments demonstrated that: LF spectral power of heart rate is modulated by the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system. HF spectral power of heart rate is modulated by the parasympathetic nervous system only. The ratio of LF/HF spectral power of heart rate reflects cardiac autonomic balance.
