History of HeartQuest Heart Rate Variability
Since the 1960’s heart rate variability had begun to develop intensively in a field of space medicine. R. M. Baevskii worked out the model for the heart rate regulation, based on two circuits of regulation — the central (the subcortical and higher autonomic centers, the cortical mechanisms of regulation) and the autonomic (the sinus node, the vagus nerves, the nucleus of the vagus nerve in the medulla oblongata).
In the Soviet Union in 1968, I. G. Nidekker in one of his works proposed the spectral method of estimating rhythmogram for the analysis of heart rate variability, giving new impetus to researches in this area. This method had further development and clinical use in evaluation of heart rate variability.
Western Europe and the United States began active study of heart rate variability in the 1980’s. Scientists became interested in heart rate variability, especially after the article of S. Akselrod (1981).
In 1988, S. A. Dudin and Ch. Z. Tsydypov (Buryat Institute of Natural Sciences, Siberian Department of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR, the Buryat branch) in searching for connections between the ideas of Tibetan and modern medicine came to the conclusion that, despite the lack of the modern equivalents of Tibetan medicine concepts such as Wind, Bile and Phlegm (which are the fundamental concepts in Tibetan medicine), the connection is very clearly seen if analyzed in terms of modern medicine symptoms of diseases that manifested in imbalance of Wind, Bile and Phlegm.
A more detailed analysis of the diseases symptoms, divided into three groups, was given in the chapter “The relationship between some concepts of Tibetan and modern medicine” in the brochure “Pulse diagnosis of Tibetan medicine.” This brochure was published in 1998 in Novosibirsk, in the publishing house “Nauka” of Siberian Department of the USSR Academy of Sciences.
In 1999, A. H. Fleischman, on the base of the Baevskii theory, proposed the model
of neural regulation of the heart rate, which was founded on four levels of regulation: the segmental (the autonomous), the stem, the hypothalamic and the hemispheric.
The neuro-dynamic and fractal analysis is proprietary info of Dinamika. Group, scientists of USSR HeartQuest is a heart rate variability system developed from the Dinamika system and brought into the United States in 2013 by Dr. Michael Kessler and Dr. Javdat Karimov. The interpretation of the Meridians, five elements, Yin- Yang Chakras, Doshas, BNT were made by Dr. Javdat Karamov.
HeartQuest is a combination of mathematical calculations on rhythmogram and some scattergram, and spectrum analysis on VLF, LF, HF with mathematical calculations using FFT (Fast Fourier Transformations), then fractal analysis, Chakra and meridian analysis. It helps the practitioners to pinpoint the area of concern and monitor the treatment. With Chakra and meridian analysis, it will give a deeper understanding the energy flow and vitality. It is combination of traditional HRV and a deeper understanding a Splin- mapping for brain activities, Meridians, five elements, Yin Yang, Doshas, Chakras and BNT interpretation is done by Dr. Javdat Karimov and Dr. Michael Kessler
A huge number of studies has evidenced usefulness of heart rate variability for diagnosing (diabetic neuropathy, sick sinus syndrome, OSAS) or prognosing (myocardial infarction, heart failure, stroke, etc) reasons.
Heart rate variability is now being used in both allopathic medicine and integrative medicine. HeartQuest is unique in giving graphs on the autonomic and Central nervous system, but also through the Russian science gives a much broader analysis of the overall health.
