The research results suggested that thermal dependent moxibustion stimulating ST36 activates TRPV1 in peripheral sensory nerves, reduced PVN neuronal activity through the opioid system, and decreased sympathoexcitatory cardiovascular reflex
Although individual change in autonomic tone and cardiovascular reactivity has been reported in previous studies, to the best of our knowledge, this is the first study in preeclamptic women in which resting cardiac autonomic tone as well as cardiovascular reactivity to stress was evaluated by employing a combination of HRV and cardiovascular reflex

tests in patients with definite diabetic autonomic neuropathy over a period of 2 years," Journal of Diabetes and its Complications, vol.
In addition, the MePD contributes more to changes in cardiovascular reflexes
than in basal HR and AP levels.
It can be possible to determine the role of ANS in FM etiopathogenesis by studies evaluating the subsystems of ANS (cardiovascular reflex
pathway, sympathetic cholinergic and adrenergic system etc.) in which chronic symptoms of FM, especially anxiety and depression, are also considered.
The following cardiovascular reflex
(CVR) tests were done in the same sequence:
In conclusion, our results showed that this model may help physicians while evaluating AIG patients, in whom there is autonomic nervous system dysfunction instead of performing cardiovascular reflex
Pitfalls in the assessment of cardiovascular reflexes
in patients with sympathetic failure but intact vagal control.
In this study, we have used some of the cardiovascular reflex
tests they are:
control by afferent fibers from skeletal muscle receptors.
After recording baseline heart rate (HR) and blood pressure (BP), all subjects underwent four simple non-invasive cardiovascular reflex
tests, namely, (a) HR response to deep breathing, (b) valsalva manoeuvre, (c) BP response to sustained handgrip, and (d) cold pressor test (CPT).
 Cardiovascular reflex
tests mainly characterizing sympathetic function had no correlation with aortic stiffness parameters.
Clinical examination showed that the patient had complete lack of pain sensation throughout her body along with hyporeflexia; however, no abnormalities in cardiovascular reflexes
, pupillary changes, swallowing and casual sweating was observed.
play an important role in maintaining blood pressure (BP) in normal individuals, but can cause a significant decrease in BP with subsequent syncope in those with an inappropriate response.
