We present a Bayesian dynamical inference method for characterizing cardiorespiratory (CR) dynamics in humans by inverse modeling from blood pressure time-series data. The technique is applicable to a broad range of stochastic dynamical models and can be implemented without severe computational demands. A simple nonlinear dynamical model is found that describes a measured blood pressure time series in the primary frequency band of the CR dynamics. The accuracy of the method is investigated using model-generated data with parameters close to the parameters inferred in the experiment. The connection of the inferred model to a well-known beat-to-beat model of the baroreflex is discussed.
