In this study we examined the effects of dosage and timing of sotalol treatment (prescribed for preventing fibrillation) on the occurrence of arrhythmias in an 82-year old man. We recorded and analysed ECG data obtained over a 7-day period in relation to sotalol dosage and timing. Our result showed that, in the absence of treatment, the heart rate tended to increase, the number of ventricular premature beats (VPCs) was higher and the number of atrial premature beats (APCs) was lower.
