The incidence of sinus bradycardia in Alzheimer's patients

Gisele P. Wolf-Klein, Michael K. Jason, Arnold Paul Levy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The health status of Alzheimer's patients was studied at an active outpatient geriatric center. These patients appeared to be generally healthier than geriatric patients with normal mental status or with abnormal, non-Alzheimer's mental status. In particular, the prevalence of cardiac disease seemed to be significantly reduced. Electrocardiograms of 75 Alzheimer's patients were reviewed. Sinus bradycardia was the most common abnormality in this group. Pathophysiology mechanisms of this phenomenon will be discussed.
