© 2017, Springer International Publishing AG. Heart failure is known to influence heart rhythm in patients. Complexity analysis techniques, including techniques associated with entropy, have great potential for providing a better understanding of cardiac rhythms, and for helping research in this area. We review the analysis principles of conventional time-domain analysis, frequency-domain analysis and of newer complexity analysis. We then illustrate the techniques using real clinical data, allowing a comparison of the techniques, and also of the differences between normal heart rate variability and that associated with heart failure.
