There was no fixed relationship between maximum heart rate slowing and the degree of vasodepression during massage (range 2-80 msec/mmHg).
Three clinical subtypes of the syndrome are defined by heart rate and systolic blood pressure responses to carotid sinus massage [1]: (1) cardioinhibition--3 s or more of asystole, (2) vasodepression--a 50 mmHg or more fall in systolic blood pressure whilst surpine or upright, (3) mixed response--a combination of cardioinhibition and vasodepression.
Correlation coefficients were calculated for baseline R-R versus change to maximum R-R and maximum R-R versus maximum vasodepression.
