To assess the feasibility of 2 noninvasive methods for arterial baroreflex sensitivity testing based on phase IV of the Valsalva maneuver, the performance of a simple arterial baroreflex sensitivity index compared with a slope method and reproducibility of repeated measurements of either parameter were evaluated in 36 subjects without structural heart disease. The study showed feasibility and reproducibility of both these methods for arterial baroreflex sensitivity assessment and demonstrated the importance of an appropriate rest period between repeated Valsalva maneuvers, giving a basis for prospective testing of noninvasive determination of arterial baroreflex sensitivity together with phenylephrine method in survivors of myocardial infarction.
