A method and apparatus for predicting susceptibility to sudden cardiac death simultaneously assessing cardiac electrical stability and autonomic influence. Cardiac electrical stability is assessed by analyzing at least one of a beat-to-beat alternation in a T-wave of an ECG of a patient's heart and dispersion of repolarization in the ECG of the patient's heart. Autonomic influence on the patient's heart is assessed by analyzing at least one of a magnitude of heart rate variability in the ECG of the patient's heart and baroreceptor sensitivity.
