Using an ambulatory electrocardiogram monitor to record skin sympathetic nerve activity

      neuECG is a method to simultaneously record the electrocardiogram (ECG) and skin sympathetic nerve activity (SKNA). Because expensive and nonportable equipment and custom-written software are needed,

      Simultaneous noninvasive recording of electrocardiogram and skin sympathetic nerve activity (neuECG).
      neuECG has not been widely adopted in clinical research or practice. The frequency range of ECG is <150 Hz in adults. We hypothesize that a patch ECG monitor with a 1000 Hz sampling rate can be used to simultaneously record both the ECG and higher frequency SKNA.
