Spectral analysis of Heart Rate Variability (HRV) is used for the assessment of cardiovascular autonomic control. In this study Continuous Wavelet Transform (CWT) has been used to evaluate the effect of local anesthesia on HRV parameters in a group of fourteen patients undergoing axillary brachial plexus block. A new method which takes signal characteristics into account has been presented for the estimation of the variable boundaries associated with the low and the high frequency band of the HRV signal. The variable boundary method might be useful in cases when the power related to respiration component extends beyond the traditionally excepted range of the high frequency band (0.15-0.4 Hz). The statistical analysis (non-parametric Wilcoxon signed rank test) showed that the LF/HF ratio decreased within an hour of the application of the brachial plexus block compared to the values fifteen minutes prior to the application of the block. These changes were observed in thirteen of the fourteen patients included in this study.
