Abstract

A study of quick adaptation of the myocardium of subjects operating a computer, depending on the adaptive capacities of the body, was conducted in 100 children with ages varying between 10 and 11 years using the electrocardiography method for the analysis of heart rate variability. Significant differences in the bioelectrical processes in the myocardium and autonomic nervous regulation of the cardiac rhythm (CR) were found in children with different adaptive capacities of the body. Quick adaptation to the operator activity in children with a good adaptive capacity is characterized by intensification of atrial activity and metabolic processes in the myocardium, as well as by a shortened duration of the cardiac cycle due to a shorter diastolic time, determined by increased sympathetic influences on the CR. In children with a decreased adaptive capacity, a decrease in the atrial excitability and myocardial metabolism, an increase in the systolic time, a decrease in the diastolic time, and an increase in parasympathetic influences on the CR are observed.
