Interaction between brain and heart may be new indicator of state of consciousness

How do we know whether a patient is conscious when he or she is unable to communicate? According to an Inserm study conducted in 127 patients aged 17 to 80, changes in heartbeat in response to sound stimulation is a good indicator of state of consciousness. This is what Inserm researcher Jacobo Sitt and his team, based at the Brain & Spine Institute (ICM) at Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital, AP-HP, demonstrate in an article published in Annals of neurology. This easy-to-perform examination complements the existing tests and enables finer predictive diagnosis, useful for both doctors and the patient’s loved ones.
