Abstract

OBJECTIVE: Dynamic pupillometry (DP) is a simple, non-invasive computerized technique for assessment of pupillary light response which provides data concerning the balance of both branches of the autonomous nervous system (ANS). Heart rate (HR) recovery (HRR) after graded exercise reflects cardiac autonomic activity and predicts cardiovascular events. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the utility of DP as a predictor of cardiac autonomic activity assessed by HRR.
