The coarse-graining from HRV recordings procedure was performed offline.
In the study by [27], it was shown that the coarse-graining affected the anticorrelated time series (H < 0.5) in a more pronounced way than the correlated time series (H > 0.5).
(i) For H < 0.5, fBm has several high frequency components that can be removed by the coarse-graining. Time series before and after filtering are quite different, indicating that the coarse-graining has a nonnegligible effect on time series.
