Abstract

OBJECTIVE: Dynamic pupillometry (DP) is a simple, non-invasive computerized assessment of pupillary light response which provides data concerning both branches of the autonomous nervous system (ANS). Heart rate variability (HRV) analysis assess cardiac health and the ANS modulation on the heart. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the utility of DP as a predictor of cardiac autonomic activity assessed by HRV.
