The Lambeth Conventions: guidelines for the study of arrhythmias in ischaemia infarction, and reperfusion

Cardiovasc Res. 1988 Jul;22(7):447-55. doi: 10.1093/cvr/22.7.447.


The Lambeth Conventions are guidelines intended to be of practical value in the investigation of arrhythmias induced by ischaemia, infarction, and reperfusion. They cover the design and execution of experiments and the definition, classification, quantification, and analysis of arrhythmias. Investigators are encouraged to adopt the conventions in the hope that this will improve uniformity and interlaboratory comparisons.
