We studied the possible relation between the frequency of ventricular tachyarrhythmic events and thermal stress in patients with an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) living in a locally limited area under homogeneous climatic conditions. The frequency of tachyarrhythmic events was correlated with the thermal stress level according to the "Klima Michel Model," a complete thermophysiologic model that calculates "felt-temperature" values on the basis of the outdoor temperature and… CONTINUE READING
