The only instruments that can monitor as well as measure cardiac vagal tone in real-time. You can you use the NeuroScope™ to demonstrate:-
• Baseline Cardic Vagal Tone during investigation of abnormal heart rate
• Proof of withdrawal of the Cardic Vagal Tone
• Assessment of the Baroreflex arc during clinical examination
• Assessment of Brainstem function in disease and in health
There is vagal withdrawal during heart failure or myocardial infarction (heart attacks). In a failing heart, the brain removes the brake it usually applies in the form of cardiac vagal tone. The NeuroScope™ can be used to provide proof of vagal withdrawal quickly, reliably without need for medical skills and in real-time.

It is now becoming clear that the baseline level of cardiac vagal tone and vagal reflexes can be used for clinical stratification of prognosis after heart attacks. A crude method of quantifying the baroreflex-induced variation of heart periods is currently in use in cardiology and it involves the calculation of the statistical standard deviation of the consecutive heart periods. This method cannot discriminate against other irrelevant variations in heart periods such as those caused by hormones or temperature changes. The NeuroScope™ quantifies vagal reflexes and measures baseline cardiac vagal tone specifically, therefore would be an ideal instrument for screening and community-based practice of cardiology.
