Measuring QT intervals in individual children is of great importance, particularly in view of increasing evidence linking long QT syndrome to subsequent risk for sudden death. Three hundred seventy-three healthy subjects, 185 women and 188 men, aged 5.2 to 16.5 years, were investigated with a 12-lead-standard electrocardiogram (ECG). Values for predicted QTp50 and QTp95 (percentiles) were calculated by using the cycle length (RR interval [RRI]) and the measured QT interval. We used multiple… CONTINUE READING
