Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The authors report the first Hungarian case of electrocardiographic Osborn wave with accidental hypothermia (core temperature 32 degrees C). The cellular and ionic mechanisms of the development of J-wave-elevation and the cardiac electrophysiological and ECG changes caused by hypothermia are briefly reviewed. An account is presented of those conditions in which, in a few or in all ECG leads, an Osborn wave or distinct J-point-elevation may be observed.
