ECG tracing in lead D1 in a newborn.The sinus rate (P-waves) is at 120/mn and the rate ventricular rate (QRS) is at 60/mn due to a functional 2 :1 AVB. The QT interval is very long (QTc = 510 ms). One out of two sinus atrial beats occurs during the ventricular refractory period.

Stress test ECG in a 12 year old child presenting with syncope and seizure during effort.A. The ECG at rest is normal (QTc = 410 ms). B. Appearance of isolted premature ventricular polymorphic beats,first, then couplets when the heart rate reaches 130/mn. C. During streneous exercise, rapid polymorphic salvoes occur with near-syncope.
