The measurement of autonomic nerve activity plays an important role in the diagnosis and treatment of various cardiovascular diseases. This paper presents a model-based method for measuring autonomic nerve activity and sensitivity. By non-invasively recording heart rate and blood pressure data of the subjects during the sit-to-stand experiment, we modeled the blood pressure-heart rate regulation system and solved personalized parameters. These personalized parameters were used to obtain the autonomic nerve activity and sensitivity of the subjects. We conducted experiments on 9 patients with refractory hypertension and 20 healthy people, and the results showed that there were significant differences in the sensitivity and activity of autonomic nerves.
