Abstract

Introduction: It is well-known that autonomic function is impaired in panic disorder (PD). Heart rate variability (HRV) is a reliable and noninvasive method to evaluate autonomic functions. The aim of this study is to evaluate 24-hour heart rate variability (HRV) parameters in drug-free panic disorder patients. These results are compared with those obtained from healthy controls.
