Can quantify TWO SEPARATE activities in each increase and decrease of RR-intervals giving 4 possibilities:
The 2 separate activities are represented by
2 wave functions: ANSigram

Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES), also known as Cranial Electrical Stimulation and Cranial Electrostimulation, falls under the branch of alternative medicine called Electromedicine, which treats physical and psychological conditions with varying levels of electrical current (Kirsch, 2006). CES is the application of a very low level alternating electrical current generated from a battery to the brain via the ears.
CES Mechanism of Action
Although the exact mechanism of action for CES are not known, pulsed electrical currents are believed to affect the limbic system, the reticular activating system, and/or the hypothalamus (Gilula & Kirsch, 2005) and to stimulate regions that control pain messages, neurotransmitter creation, and hormone production via the hypothalamic-pituitary axis (Kirsch & Smith, 2004). It is believed that electrical stimulation releases additional endorphins in the body and over time is able to reprogram the brain to attenuate the spurious pain signals that are generated by the brain.The ear provides the largest surface skin area to be able to access the key nerves in the body.
The P-STIM point therapy stimulation device is a very simple and elegant method to apply CES to the human body. It does not interfere with the patient’s daily life while it is in use.
CES and ANS Monitoring technology work very well together. Chronic Pain is intimately associated with the Autonomic Nervous System. Monitoring the ANS, while treating the patient with CES provides a quantitative indication of the baseline pain prevalence and its improvement with the CES treatment.
