The queries raised by Nandal in his letter are valid.

Query No. 1: The Bazett formula for corrected QT-interval is:

QTc = QT interval / ÖRR interval = QT / ÖR-R

The root sign is missing due to printing error.

Query No. 2: QT dispersion is the difference between the maximum and the minimum QT-interval (and not heart rate). We are sorry for the oversight.
