Özet

Background: Heart rate variability (HRV) is depressed and parasympathetic modulation of the heart is attenuated in patients with heart failure (HF). Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors are known to reduce the mortality and morbidity associated with HF after acute myocardial infarction, but the mechanism of this activity is not known.
