PMID:  1811092     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We describe a patient whose electrocardiograms showed ventricular tachycardia and atrial flutter which could be reproduced by arm movements. Careful review of the initiation and termination of the arrhythmia, the relation of the arrhythmia to body motion, and the associated symptoms and signs may be helpful to differentiate artifact from true arrhythmia.
