The Arizona Cert is devoted to education and research on drug-induced arrhythmias, especially those due to prolongation of the
QT interval on the electrocardiogram (ECG). Prolongation
of the QT interval can result in the potentially lethal arrhythmia,
Torsades de Pointes.

At the Arizona CERT, we have established the "International Registry for Drug-Induced Arrhythmias". Physicians are encouraged to submit drug-induced arrhythmia incidents and patient related information to our registry. To contribute, please visit Submit Case to QT Registry under our Professionals section.

In addition to the registry, we also provide detailed lists of drugs
that prolong the QT interval or cause Torsades de Pointes. The lists are available in our for Professionals section under View QT Drug Lists.
