Abstract

Objective

Study of changes in QTc interval with menstrual cycle in young adult female basketball players.

Method

Healthy young female adults in the age group of 18–22 years physicaly fit subjects were selected among general population. Sample size was 40. Parameters of ECG, QT interval, RR interval, QTc Interval were recorded during different phases of menstrual cycle. Mean and Standard deviation was calculated.

Results

There was significant rise in QTc Interval recorded during menstrual phase

Conclusion

Women are at risk of developing ventricular arrhythmias during menstrual phase as compared to Proliferative and Secretory phase.
