PURPOSE To measure the corrected QT cardiac repolarization time before and during epileptic seizures. METHODS Thirty-nine video-EEG/ECG/SAO(2) (electroencephalography/electrocardiography/oxygen saturation) telemetry patients were included in this prospective study. Epileptic seizures were identified both clinically and electrographically. RR intervals and associated QT intervals were measured 5 min prior to the onset of the identified seizure. Consecutive RR and associated QT intervals were… CONTINUE READING
