Joseph M Pastore, Rodney W Salo, Gerrard M Carlson, Andrew P Kramer, Jiang Ding, Yinghong Yu: Method and apparatus for using heart rate variability to control maximum tracking rate in pacing therapy. Cardiac Pacemakers, Schwegman Lundberg & Woessner P A, August 25, 2009: US07580745 (3 worldwide citation)

A cardiac rhythm management system modulates the delivery of pacing and/or autonomic neurostimulation pulses based on heart rate variability (HRV). An HRV parameter being a measure of the HRV is produced to indicate a patient's cardiac condition, based on which the delivery of pacing and/or autonomi ...
