RESULTS: A significant circadian variation was observed in healthy subjects when modes QTdisp 12 and QTdisp 6 were used (Mean +/- SD 35.58 +/- 16.48 ms; P < 0.0001; and 28.82 +/- 16.02 ms; P < 0.0001, respectively), and in patients with CAD (Mean +/- SD 37.86 +/- 17.87 ms; P < 0.01; and 28.72 +/- 17.06 ms; P < 0.0001, respectively), whereas no circadian variation was observed in QTdisp 2.
