OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine if patients with idiopathic ventricular fibrillation (VF) have shorter QT intervals than comparable healthy controls. BACKGROUND The upper limit of the normal QT is well defined. Less is known about the lower limit of the normal QT. Patients with the recently described "short QT syndrome" have characteristics resembling those of patients with idiopathic VF. METHODS The ECGs of 28 consecutive patients with idiopathic VF (17 men and 11… CONTINUE READING
