    Corrected QT Interval (QTc)

    Corrects the QT interval for heart rate extremes (choose from Bazett, Fridericia, Framingham, Hodges, or Rautaharju formulas).
    When to Use
    Why Use
    • Patients with syncope.
    • Patients receiving multiple QT-prolonging medicines.
    • A prolonged QT interval is associated with an increased risk of torsade de pointes.
    • The QT shortens at faster heart rates; this calculator corrects the QT to the QT at a heart rate of 60.
    • The QT lengthens at slower heart rates; this calculator corrects the QT to the QT at a heart rate of 60.
