A noninvasive method was developed to measure beat to beat fluctuations of the P-Q interval, smaller than 1 msec. For this purpose a software program was developed to analyze data obtained from high resolution ECG measurements in humans. The method will be used to study (a) P-Q interval changes in normal young people as a response to change in the position of the body after tilting the body, (b) P-Q interval changes during anaesthesia and after recovery from it, (c) in coronary patients, and (d) in the rabbit before and after digitalization. The method will be modified for measurements of Q-T interval fluctuations and used to study the response of the Q-T interval after changing the position by tilting the body, and after breath holding, as well as to measure changes in the Q-T interval fluctuations in coronary patients as compared to the normal control group. For the purpose of interpretation of the measurements, a mathematical model will be built, based on electrophysiogical properties of AV node.
