Systolic time intervals: a review of the method in the non-invasive investigation of cardiac function in health, disease and clinical pharmacology



Systolic time intervals: a review of the method in the non-invasive investigation of cardiac function in health, disease and clinical pharmacology



Postgraduate Medical Journal 59(693): 423-434



Measurement of systolic time intervals is a valuable, non-invasive procedure to assess left ventricular performance, particularly when influenced by drugs. In this review, we discuss various factors affecting systolic time intervals, the therapeutic implications of the technique and its place among other non-invasive tests of cardiac function.
