This Website was
established in order to spread the word about a newly discovered heart
disease called Short QT Syndrome (SQTS), which is easily
overlooked and in some cases life-threatening.
Short QT Syndrome is still a
relatively unknown disease. Much of the general public has no
knowledge about SQTS, and there are still a great number of physicians
who are unaware of this newly discovered disease.
The Short QT Syndrome
website is dedicated to presenting the available information in a format
suitable for the lay public and medical professionals. We have
included patient and physician correspondence forms to aid those
afflicted with this disease and further our experience and knowledge
about Short QT Syndrome.
