This study is not new, but I didn’t seem to have access to it, so am linking here. 7_Yong_Huang_Presentation

In this study, she looks at LF/HF, RMSSD, and SampEn in a number of patients after treatment with acupuncture.  She finds that only SampEn is altered.  Because of my recent correspondence with Xavier Bornas who stresses the importance of SampEn as a biomarker, I include this study by Huang.  Strangely, she finds that HRV decreases with acupuncture and LF/HF remains unchanged.
