Abstract

Background: It has been reported in the literature that the increase in body temperature shortens QT interval on electrocardiogram through heart rate modulation. However, the effects of fever on ventricular repolarization are not clearly known. This study elaborates on QT interval of isolated fever, corrected QT (cQT), Tp-e interval, the ratio of corrected Tp-e (cTp-e) and Tp-e/QT, and their impacts on arrhythmia potential.
