The purpose of this study was to investigate the dynamic relationship between heart rate and the Q-aT interval (the interval from the Q wave to the T wave apex) in patients with long QT syndrome. The QT to heart rate relation is useful for evaluating abnormalities of the ventricular repolarization, but its clinical application to the long QT syndrome requires accurate computer aided measurement of the QT interval and the sampling of a large number of beats. Therefore, the Q-aT interval was used… CONTINUE READING
