An increase in the dispersion of action potential duration restitution (APDR) has been associated with higher propensity to suffer from ventricular arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death (SCD). Recently, a marker, Δα, was proposed to non-invasively quantify APDR dispersion from the electrocardiogram (ECG) by computing the ratio between differences in the T-peak-to-T-end (Tpe) and RR intervals at different steady-state conditions. Holter ECG recordings of patients with chronic heart failure… CONTINUE READING
