Abstract

The effects of atropine on sinoatrial conduction time (SACT) measured directly (SACTD)from the sinus node electrogram (SNE) were investigated in 15 patients with normal sinus node function. A comparison was undertaken with the results furnished by indirect methods which employ premature (SACTS) and asynchronous atrial stimulation (SACTN) to calculate SACT. In the control stale SACTD was 92-5±16-4ms. SACTS 78-2±22 ms, and SACTN 97-9±32-2 ms. After atropine SACTD was 70-6±15-6ms (P
