Performance Metrics

Disclaimer: The performance metrics are displayed as reported by the source studies. It is important to note that metrics are not necessarily comparable with each other. For example, metrics depend on the sample characteristics (described by the PGS Catalog Sample Set [PSS] ID), phenotyping, and statistical modelling. Please refer to the source publication for additional guidance on performance.

PSS000905 Intravenous ajmaline was administered at consecutive boluses of 10 mg/min. A 10-s ECG was recorded ∼1 min after each bolus using a GE Healthcare electrocardiograph. The test was stopped when the target dose of 1 mg/kg rounded up to the next 10 mg was reached, if ventricular arrhythmia occurred, or at the manifestation of a Type I BrS pattern, defined as an ST elevation >2 mm with a coved morphology in any lead among V1–V2 in the 2nd to 4th intercostal spaces.15 1,185 individuals European Amsterdam
PSS007671 An atrial tachyarrhythmia characterised by rapid (usually faster than 300 bpm), irregular and uncoordinated atrial impulse generation, usually manifesting on ECG with indistinct P-waves and an irregularly irregular ventricular response.
