The main limitations are due to additional sources of variability of the QT interval, the use of the Bazett formula, methodological difficulties in delineating the end of the T wave, lack of standardization for Tpe and QTd and no direct arrhythmia data.
The use of the Bazett formula results in an overcorrection of the QT interval at higher heart rates and undercorrection at lower heart rates.
Several calculations have been used to correct the measurement based on heart rate, and the most commonly employed is the Bazett formula (Bazett 1920).
QTmax was corrected for rate using using the Bazett formula (9): QTc = QT[square root] RR, where RR represents the R-R distance.
The QT and JT intervals were corrected for the heart rate using the Bazett formula (QTc and JTc) (9).
