BACKGROUND Although J-waves are seen in both patients with idiopathic ventricular fibrillation (IVF) and the general population, their genesis remains unclear. To assess the relationship between J-waves and autonomic tone we investigated the circadian variation of J-waves in individuals with and without IVF. METHODS AND RESULTS In study 1, we obtained resting 12-lead ECG and Holter ECG recordings in 258 individuals undergoing screening for heart disease. In 60 of these subjects (23.3%), we… CONTINUE READING
