How does the autonomic nervous system control heart rate?
What is the difference between chronotropic and autonomic cardiac regulation?
- Autonomic Cardiac Regulation. Autonomic innervation of the heart, both with sympathetic and parasympathetic fibers, can modulate the frequency with which the heart is activated to beat (Chronotropic Effects) along with the intensity of contraction that electrical activation of the myocardium induces (Inotropic Effects).
Does autonomic regulation of the cardiovascular system change during pregnancy?
- Autonomic regulation of the cardiovascular system is a prime candidate for modification during gestation, but its study is complicated by baseline differences in heart rate, blood pressure, and blood volume that accompany pregnancy.129 In the first edition of this text, Chesley reviewed striking observations made during the 1950s and 1960s]
How is the rhythm of the heart controlled?
- The rhythm of the heart is controlled by the cardiac sinoatrial node located in the heart. The sinoatrial node receives nerve impulses from the autonomic nervous system, including both sympathetic and parasympathetic branches.
