Abstract

An effect of cimetidine on ECG records has been investigated in a group of 40 patients with gastric or duodenal ulcers and coexisting circulatory disorders. For this purpose ECG has been recorded with Holter's technique (Medilog 2000) together with ECG-recording using high amplifying technique. An intravenous injection of 200 mg of cimetidine produced in some of patients inhibition of the sinus rhythm atrio-ventricular conduction disturbances as well as changes in the end phase of ECG ventricular image. The authors suggest, that intravenous administration of cimetidine to patients with cardiac diseases should be monitored with ECG recording.
