Photoplethysmography variability (PPGV) is currently considered to be a good surrogate to heart rate variability (HRV) measurements using the time between two pulse waves instead of RR intervals. Nevertheless, the interchangeability between HRV and PPGV has never been evaluated in situations with severe alterations in the autonomic nervous system (ANS). We aimed to identify the conditions for a correct utilization of PPGV in evaluating the consequences of sympathetic stimulations. Nine subjects performed three tests: active orthostatic test, slow walk and moderate and exhaustive cycling exercises in the supine position. Pulse waves at the fingertip and RR intervals were recorded at the same time. We used correlations and the Bland and Altman method to compare and evaluate interchangeability between several HRV indices. Bland and Altman analysis highlighted small discrepancies between PPGV and HRV for all HRV indices in the supine position and for LF_{ms^2 }, HF_{ms^2 }, LFpeak and RMSSD in the upright position. During the slow walk, it was impossible to detect properly PPG peaks. We observed large differences between the two methods during the cycling exercise. In conclusion, PPGV can be used instead of HRV without reserve in the supine position but only for some HRV indices in the upright position and not during slow walk and cycling exercise.
