ABSTRACT
1. Physical conditioning would appear to be no protector against atherosclerosis, especially where adverse, genetic, or metabolic factors are present. 2. Aging athletes discovered to have arrhythmias should be examined electrocardiographically at high work loads to differentiate vagal from organic causes of the arrhythmias. 3. Lifetime conditioned athletes have markedly increased heart voltage as manifested by high R-waves in their electrocardiographic complexes. 4. T-wave and J-wave increases with exercises appear to be normal physiological phenomena. 5. On unrestricted diets, this special group under study generally revealed elevated triglycerides at all age levels, and elevated cholesterol and triglyceride values above 60 years of age, suggesting different dietary habits than the general population. 6. Some of these athletes perform very well at high work loads in spite of the presence of advanced ischemic heart disease, often even better at higher work loads than lower loads, suggesting a reserve of collateral circulation acting at maximum effort.

    The article presents research which dealt with the antiarrhythmic and proarrhythmic properties of QT-Prolonging Antianginal Drugs. The author argues that prolonging repolarization is capable of controlling cardiac arrhythmias. Hence, antianginal agents such as amiodarone and ranolazine are safe...

    Abnormal intra-QRS potentials (AIQPs) in signal-averaged electrocardiograms have been proposed as a risk evaluation index for ventricular arrhythmias. The purpose of the paper was to develop an automatic algorithm for selecting the optimum parametric model order in the analysis of AIQPs to make...

    Concealment of an accessory pathway is caused by its ability to conduct retrogradely only. This variant of accessory pathway conduction could not be confirmed until invasive electrophysiology was introduced in the 1970s. As a rule, it is reported that concealed accessory pathways were predicted...
