Objective: In the context of moderate intermittent explosive disorder (mIED) the by Siebel so-called cerebro-physiological switch (CPS) was recently evidenced by electroencephalogram (EEG) studies. Here we further determine correlations between the CPS and features occurring in electrocardiogram (ECG) recordings.
Methods: The ECG of 44 patients with CPS was recorded before and after a therapeutic treatment.
Results: The high beta activity of CPS patients detected by prior EEG studies lead to the heart by the way of working out stress. This results in distinct noisy features occurring within several leads in all ECG recordings of CPS patients. After a treatment ex-cluding strong medications like Ritalin® and others the CPS was remitted at least after 4 months and the noisy features in the ECG recordings vanished over the whole leads.
Conclusions: These results demonstrate the feasibility of using ECG as an alternative diagnostic tool to detect the CPS, which is routinely in use by physicians and less expensive. Furthermore, the applied soft therapy substantially helps remitting the CPS and is even able to support healing side-effects such as colitis ulcerosa.
