This study demonstrates that ventricular depolarization and repolarization are affected by glycemic variability in type 2 diabetic patients Robinson et al.
Generally, the cardiac activity is separated into two parts, depolarization and repolarization indicating contraction and relaxation of heart muscle.
As the patient's serum potassium returned to normal, his heart rate slowed, P waves became more visible, QRS complexes narrowed, and the repolarization changes of hyperkalemia disappeared (Figure 3).
sup][4] Did the patients undergo long-term electrocardiogram recordings, and in particular were loop recorders implanted to see if any of the patients had a tendency to develop prolonged QT-interval, early repolarization, or ventricular arrhythmias?
It is thought that QT dispersion reflects regional differences in ventricular repolarization.
Ventricular repolarization may be defined using QT interval, QT dispersion, and T wave measurements.
This may be due to autonomically induced repolarization changes.
Early afterdepolarizations (EADs) are triggered before the completion of repolarization [1] and associated with polymorphic ventricular tachyarrhythmia for long QT syndrome patients [2].
