The non-invasive, dynamic tracking and diagnosing of cardiac vulnerability to ventricular fibrillation involves analysis of both cardiac electrical stability and the influence of autonomic activity. The magnitude of alternation in an electrocardiogram is indicative of cardiac electrical stability. Alternans are made manifest by applying a physiologic stress such as exercise or behavioral stress to a subject.
