Nerve-Express is a fully automatic, non-invasive computer-based system designed for quantitative assessment of the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) based on Heart Rate Variability (HRV) analysis.The Autonomic Nervous System is basically the internal network that carries out commands to the body's self-healing mechanisms. HRV testing is a rapid way to assess the adaptability of the ANS (Autonomic Nervous System) to handle stresses. HRV tests are important records for integrative medicine management.
Heart rate variability (HRV) is controlled by the autonomic nervous system (ANS), also known as the visceral nervous system. The ANS is part of the peripheral nervous system (PNS). The nerves in the PNS connect various organ systems to the central nervous system (CNS), which includes the brain and spinal cord. The ANS functions at the subconscious level. In addition to controlling heart rate, it controls bodily functions such as sweating, digestion, and breathing. Because the autonomic control of heart rate can reveal abnormal changes in physiological functions, HRV may be very useful in making diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic determinations.
Heart Rate Variability (HRV) evaluates the balancing act between the sympathetic nervous system (fight and flight) and the parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest). An imbalance in HRV is the #1 risk factor for sudden cardiac death. The simple hand electro-sensor test shows you a report on the balance between your heart and nervous system in minutes.
Heart rate variability (HRV), or the beat-to-beat alterations in heart rate, is an accurate and reliable reflection of the many physiological factors modulating the normal rhythm of the heart. In fact, HRV provides a powerful means of observing the interplay between the sympathetic and parasympathetic Autonomic Nervous Systems (ANS).
The HRV Process
The HRV test consists of two main components: a small EKG sensor with a pulse wave sensor and the accompanying analysis software. A five-minute recording of HRV is all that is necessary to quickly create an accurate assessment of the status of the sympathetic and parasympathetic branches of the Autonomic Nervous System. The sensor transmits the collected data to the PC for processing. The software uses advanced technology of recording and interpreting HRV signals in order to derive heart rate data. This heart rate data is used to ascertain the current state of inner balance and self-regulatory activity. The software and analyses are intuitive, easy-to-use and designed for success in the hands of a healthcare practitioner. Simple hardware and standard computer requirements ensure the HRV test transitions seamlessly into virtually every health practice
