Long COVID and Its Impact on Heart Rate Variability: A Detailed Study Analysis

A recent study explored the impact of Long COVID on heart rate variability (HRV) at rest and during deep-breathing maneuvers (M-RSA), providing valuable insights into the condition’s long-term effects on cardiac and autonomic function. Key Findings: Conclusion: The study concludes that patients with Long COVID exhibit abnormal autonomic tone, characterized by depressed HRV, suggesting lower parasympathetic tone and reduced complexity of HRV. These findings indicate a potential risk of sudden death and highlight the need for strategies to improve cardiac and autonomic responses in patients with Long COVID symptoms. Further investigation into pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions to address these issues…
