Özet

Background: P wave dispersion (P-d), defined as the difference between the maximum (P-max) and the minimum P wave duration (P-min), and P-max are electrocardiographic (ECG) markers that have been used to evaluate the discontinuous propagation of sinus impulses and the prolongation of atrial conduction time. P-d in normal subjects has been reported to be influenced by the autonomic tone, which induces changes in atrial size and the velocity of impulse propagation. However, the association between P-d and anxiety has not been studied in normal subjects.
