Long QT syndrome
Long QT syndrome is an electrical condition of the heart that affects the heart’s rhythm. A person with long QT syndrome may experience fast, erratic heartbeats when exercising, or at times of emotional excitement. This may cause fainting, seizures or, …
Long QT Syndrome (LQTS)
Long QT syndrome Long QT syndrome (LQTS) is a rare inherited condition that can cause abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias). It affects around 1 in 2,000 people. These arrhythmias are caused by a delay in your electrical system, which keeps you heart

Long QT syndrome – Investigations
QT and corrected QT interval increase more in LQT1 than in LQT2 and LQT3. Useful for diagnosis when the QT interval is borderline prolonged. Assists in the prescription of a maximum exercise level for patients presenting with exercise-induced symptoms of
Drugs that prolong the QT interval
Print versions of the BNF contain a table with a list of some drugs that prolong the QT interval within Appendix 1, Interactions. The BNF 80 (September 2020 – March 2021) lists the following examples of drugs which prolong the QT interval (note this list is not exhaustive , and not all drugs are included within the Devon Formulary):
QTc: how long is too long?
· PDF 檔案The QT interval is defined as the time duration between the onset of the QRS complex and the end of the T wave as it returns to baseline (fig 2), ideally measured using either lead II or lead V5 of the 12-lead ECG. There are no standards for interpreting prolonged
Prolonged QT interval with rivastigmine
Prolonged QT interval in association with this drug has not been previously described in the literature. A 78-year-old man with dementia was commenced on rivastigmine for worsening of his cognitive decline and behavioural difficulties. He was receiving the

Corrected QT Interval (QTc)
The Corrected QT Interval (QTc) adjusts the QT interval correctly for heart rate extremes. Henry Cuthbert Bazett, MD, (d. 1950) was the head of the Department of Physiology at the University of Pennsylvania and was a leader of the American Society of Physiology.

It became prolonged (>460 ms) in all cases during TH and normalized after cessation of TH, apart from Patient 4 who did not have an ECG post-TH since she died from cardiogenic shock. There was a negative correlation between temperature and QTc (Pearson’s correlation coefficient, r = −0.71).

Overview of the study process. Among the 816,421 ECG results, 402,607 ECGs which have no duplicated or repeated measurements, no outlier, and potassium (K +) and calcium (Ca +) results within one-year before ECG measurement were enrolled and divided into QT prolongation case (n=62,007) vs. control (n=340,600) or severe QT prolongation case (n=9,353) vs. control (n=393,254).
