In this study, we assessed the information dynamics of respiration and heart rate variability during mental stress testing by means of the cross-entropy, a measure of cardiorespiratory coupling, and the self-entropy of the tachogram conditioned to the knowledge of respiration. Although stress is related to a reduction in vagal activity, no difference in cardiorespiratory coupling was found when 5 minutes of rest and stress were compared. The conditional self-entropy, on the other hand, showed significantly higher values during stress, indicating a higher predictability of the tachogram. These results show that entropy analyses of cardiorespiratory data reveal new information that could not be obtained with traditional heart rate variability studies. © 2014 IEEE.
