article description
There is a heightened risk of sudden cardiac death related to exercise and the postexercise recovery period, but the precise mechanism is unknown. We have demonstrated that sympathoexcitation persists for ≥45 minutes after exercise in normals and subjects with coronary artery disease (CAD). The purpose of this study is to determine whether this persistent sympathoexcitation is associated with persistent heart rate variability (HRV) and ventricular repolarization changes in the postexercise recovery period.
