abstract

  • Heart rate accelerates before spontaneous ventricular ectopy in patients with VT. The acceleration is disproportionate to parasympathetic withdrawal, implicating increased endogenous sympathetic tone in the genesis of spontaneous ventricular arrhythmias caused by all three electrophysiologic mechanisms: reentry, triggered activity, and automaticity.
