The central mechanism of respiratory arrhythmia and the inter-relations between the central and reflex mechanisms.
Respiratory arrhythmia which might accompany respiratory diseases and ventilator variables may also affect HRV However, these data were not evaluated in our study, either.
It has been suggested that these positive clinical results may be partly due to the restoration of a state of relaxed wakefulness with closed eyes, of respiratory sinus arrhythmia or respiratory arrhythmia in the form of the synchronization of the cardiac and respiratory rhythms (Eckberg, 1995; Hatch, Borchering, & German, 1992; Lehrer et al., 1997; Schafer, Rosenblum, Kurths, & Abel, 1998; Schiek, Drepper, Engbert, Abel, & Suder, 1998; Zwiener, Schelenz, Bramer, & Hoyer, 2001, among others).
In the present study, particular attention was paid to the presence or absence of the phenomenon of respiratory arrhythmia or cardio-respiratory synchronization during the initial state of wakeful relaxation.
Individuals with initially pronounced respiratory arrhythmia did not have any trouble in the initial test performance.
