Abstract

The ECG features of accidental hypothermia are presented in the light of 5 observations, consideration being given to possible relationships between hypothermic ECG abnormalities and ventricular fibrillation. The ECG and VCG abnormalities associated with hypothermia were reproduced in dog experiments and the exact location in time and space of the J deflection was attempted by epicardial leads and its derivatives. It was found that the J deflection belongs partly to depolarization, partly to repolarization and that it is due to an extreme delay in the activation of the posterobasal region.
