QTc dispersion

In electrocardiography, variation in the corrected QT interval in different leads. This has been correlated with an increased incidence of ventricular arrhythmias and sudden death.

The risk of bath causing sudden death due to hot water, high medium temperature and humidity was studied by QTc dispersion, which is the non-invasive electrophysiological indicator of the ventricular arrhythmias.
In our study, we determined no meaningful difference in QTc dispersion in individuals who take bath.

QTc dispersion, the difference between the maximum and minimum QTc intervals, was calculated.
To assess the observer reliability of QTc dispersion measurements, fifteen ECG records were randomly chosen for re-measurement of the QT intervals two months after the initial measurements.

In the literature, information about decrease of QTc dispersion in obese subjects after weight loss with diet and medical treatment is also limited.
Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate whether the decrease of QTc dispersion takes place after weight loss with diet and medical treatment.
