Abstract

Assessment of Autonomic Nervous System Dysfunction in Elderly Women Suffering from Chronic Heart Failure with or Without Type 2 Diabetes

Research evaluated frequency of autonomic nervous system dysfunction in a group of women with chronic heart failure with type 2 diabetes (group 2, n= 44) or without type 2 diabetes (group 1, n=41), as compared to control (group 0, n=34). Also evaluated was the influence of concentration of hemoglobin and serum creatinine on the frequency of autonomic nervous system dysfunction.
