The study compares a recently proposed shortterm model-based linear multiscale complexity approach to a single-scale application of the same method and to a model-free nonlinear one based on the computation of conditional entropy with the aim at assessing the complementary information. Comparison was carried out over 24 hours Holter recordings of heart period variability during daytime and nighttime in 12 healthy men (age: 34-55 years). Single-scale methods were able to detect the increased complexity of the cardiac control during nighttime. Multiscale complexity analysis showed that this increase was due to an increase of complexity in the low frequency band (from 0.04 to 0.15 Hz), while complexity in the range of frequencies typical of the respiratory rate was unmodified. Regardless of the method (i.e. linear or nonlinear) single-scale complexity indexes were uncorrelated to the multiscale ones. We conclude that short-term model-based linear multiscale complexity approach provides complementary information to single-scale methods in an application devoted to the analysis of cardiac control from 24 hours Holter recordings.
