Scan views are the graphs represented by the data collected during a neuroPULSE scan. The neuroPULSE data is presented in 3 variations and highlights the imbalances between the amplitude and symmetry of various frequencies.
Instantaneous Heart Rate (IHR) graph (Red line/Blue line graph): (Fig. 1)
The pulse wave pattern is shown as the calibration begins and continues through the entire collection period. It should be a rhythmic and well paced string of beats. One of the challenges in collecting good data is having the patient hold their hand still while being tested. During the calibration time you may instruct the patient to gently push down with their middle finger. Watch the pulse wave jump and resettle. Now, instruct the patient to keep an eye on the collection as the test begins and refrain from any “wiggling” that can interrupt the beat pattern. A simple demonstration like this can keep the patient engaged and alert them to stop wiggling!
Adaptability Reserve (HRV “Rainbow” Graph (Fig. 1)):
The Adaptive Reserve Graph plots the Autonomic Activity Index (AAI) against the Autonomic balance Index (ABI). AAI is calculated from the amount of amplitude that is within the frequencies associated with the sympathetic (S) and parasympathetic (PS) divisions of the CNS. ABI represents the balance between the S(LF) and PS(HF) frequency activity. It is calculated using the LF/HF ratios.
These zones represent unique interpretations of the HRV data, which are published in the scan and CORESCORE reports. This data and calculations are available in the Table view, accessed by swiping after viewing the Rainbow graph.
