Describes a clinical case in which a tachycardia was spuriously recorded as a result of insufficient battery voltage. Acceptance of round-the-clock electrocardiographic monitoring as a tool in detecting arrhythmias and electrocardiographic changes in the ambulatory patient; Observation that dysfunction of eledctrocardiorecorder, faulty lead placement and inadequate battery voltage may produce false and misleading electrocardiographic changes.
