Abstract

The aim of this work was to assess the impact of breathing mechanics, body posture and subject’s physique on heart rate variability (HRV). 13 healthy students performed series of breathing with different rates and depths, while supine, sitting and standing. Impedance pneumography (IP) and electrocardiography signals were registered. Repeated ANOVA was used to estimate the factor effect on 4 parameters proposed. For standard deviation one (SD), ratio of SD and mean heart rate (SDM), and for maximum value of cross-correlation (COR, which describing the correspondence between IP and HRV signals in term of shapes), depth and rate of breathing and body posture had statistically significant impact. Slow, deep breathing caused increase of HRV.
