Objective: Cardiac ventricular conduction has been studied in patients with schizophrenia who have undergone electroconvulsive therapies while they were drug-naive or drug-free or on drug regimens; however, atrial conduction has not been studied in this setting. We aimed to measure atrial and ventricular conduction changes in hospitalized patients with schizophrenia after convulsive therapy.
