The complexity of HP and SAP variabilities was assessed from short beat-to-beat recordings (i.e., 256 cardiac beats). The evaluation was made during a pharmacological protocol that induced vagal blockade with atropine or a sympathetic blockade (beta-adrenergic blockade with propranolol or central sympathetic blockade with clonidine) alone or in combination, during a graded head-up tilt, and in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) without orthostatic hypotension undergoing orthostatic challenge.

Complexity indexes derived from short HP and SAP beat-to-beat series provide complementary information and are helpful in detecting early autonomic dysfunction in patients with PD well before circulatory symptoms become noticeable.
