Abstract

Amiodarone-Induced Life- Threatening Ventricular Arrhythmias in a Patient with Cerebrogenic QT Interval Prolongation. Clinical Implications

Acquired causes of abnormal QT interval prolongation include drug effect, toxins, electrolyte imbalance, hypothermia, severe bradyarrhythmias, myocardial ischemia, heart failure, altered nutritional states, hypothyroidism, Coxsackie B3 myocarditis, immunodeficiency virus syndrome.

Keywords: Toxins; Electrolyte imbalance; Hypothermia; Myocardial ischemia; Heart failure
