Abstract

Background: Heart rate variability (HRV) analysis is a technique employed to explore the activity of autonomic nervous system. The aim of the present study was to compare and evaluate the analysis of cardiac autonomic modulation during cold pressor test and acute exercise in healthy subjects. Methods: The subjects consisted of 50 healthy students within the age group 17-20 years. The electrocardiogram recording was taken during the exposure of cold pressor test and acute exercise. Results: HRV analysis showed the significant increase (P < 0.05) in the Low frequency component (LF) during CPT when compared to acute exercise. A non-significant decrease in the high frequency component (HF) was observed during CPT when compared to acute exercise Conclusion: The findings in healthy subjects suggest that in the clinical setting increase in cardiac sympathetic activity is more during Cold pressor test when compared to acute exercise.
