Post-Ictal Heart Rate Oscillations in Partial Epilepsy: Data and Analysis (7 records)

Seven annotated single-lead ECG recordings, with times of seizures indicated.

The authors of the third reference below report "post-ictal heart rate oscillations in a heterogeneous group of patients with partial epilepsy. This pattern is marked by the appearance of transient but prominent low-frequency heart rate oscillations (0.01 - 0.1 Hz) immediately following five of 11 seizures recorded in five patients. This finding may be a marker of neuroautonomic instability, and, therefore, may have implications for understanding perturbations of heart rate control associated with partial seizures." more...
