Introduction. The QT interval is a measure of the duration of ventricular repolarization. It approximates the time interval between the start of depolarization and the end of repolarization of the ventricular myocardium. 1 QT prolongation is associated with a risk for cardiac arrhythmias given that it can result in early after depolarizations, provoke Torsades des Pointes, and lead to.
A borderline QTc will not be worrisome. “Borderline QTc (440-470 ms) is found in 15 percent of the general population,” says Andrea Natale, MD, cardiac electrophysiologist and executive medical director of the Texas Cardiac Arrhythmia Institute at St. David’s Medical Center.
Despite the inappropriateness in using QTc when trying to make the diagnosis of Short QT Syndrome, it can at times be useful: if both the QT interval and the QTc in an ECG at a heart rate above 60 beats per minute is below normal, the patient will have a short QT interval, and, therefore, be under suspicion of having Short QT Syndrome.
Here's how to calculate the QTc using Bazett's formula: Measure the QT interval, choosing a lead in which the T wave is clearly defined. Count the number of small boxes between the beginning of the Q wave and the end of the T wave and multiply by 0.04 for the time in seconds.

The QT interval is measured over several successive beats and averaged when calculating the QTc for any individual EKG. 2. The QTc is calculated on several EKG’s in a patient in whom the QT is.
