Sympathetic neural burst amplitude distribution: A more specific indicator of sympathoexcitation in human heart failure.
BACKGROUND: Human muscle sympathetic nerve activity (MSNA) is usually measured as the number of pulse-synchronous bursts in multiunit mean voltage recordings. We recently suggested burst amplitude distribution as a more sensitive indicator of altered MSNA in congestive heart failure (CHF). Here, we test whether this distribution can discriminate between different conditions with increased MSNA burst frequency and whether it reflects single vasoconstrictor fiber firing intensity.
