The article provides information on results of research of connection between spectral index of heart rate variability, got during 5-minutes record of echocardiography in acute period of traumatic disease, and severity of trauma, severity of health condition and level of impairment of consciousness in patients with combined chest trauma. Defined correlating connections between separate indexes of spectral analysis of heart rate variability and scales, reflecting health status severity and severity of trauma when admission the patients. Defined accurate differences between indexes of a power of very low frequency, low frequency and high-frequency waves, indexes of a vagosympathetic balance in groups of patients with poor clinical outcome and lethal outcome. Proved the possibility of the use of definite, during 12 hours after getting injury, relative powers of low-frequency and high-frequency waves, expressed in normalized units, index of a vagosympathetic balance as physiological markers of poor clinical outcome in patients with severe combined chest trauma.
