Poster Presentation INS Barcelona: HRV as biomarker for successful TAVNS treatment during acupuncture

Kristen Sparrow • May 28, 2022

I realize the poster is hard to read.  Feel free to go to the link for a better view.  Basically, I was trying to see if TAVNS, transcutaneous vagal nerve stimulation, would alter the HRV of patients while receiving acupuncture.  My hypothesis was that it would further improve patients HRV if given during an acupuncture treatment.  Alas, I could not show this.  I was hoping to see whether sympathetic or parasympathetic activity was more affected.  In some people it was and in some it wasn’t.  The abstract, with more explanation for why this is of interest is here.
