Main results


In a community-based cohort, increased time-updated HR and ΔHR were associated with mortality and non-fatal outcomes of incident HF, MI, and stroke. These results support the importance of measuring HR in every-day clinical practice, to identify individuals who might be at greater risk of adverse outcomes.
