German term or phrase: Verlaufs-EKG
Is Verlaufs-EKG different from Langzeit-EKG? It has to be, because Langzeit-EKG is also used here.

EKG:
Absolute Arrhythmie bei Vorhofflimmern, ... Keine wesentliche Änderungen in den Verlaufs-EKG, insbesondere betreffend der QT-Zeit.
Langzeit-EKG:
Vorauswertung durch Nichtangabe des Schrittmacher erhebilch gestört.

Clinical Implications of a Next-Day Follow-Up Electrocardiogram in Patients With Non-ST Elevation Acute Coronary Syndromes

Consider repeating the ECG when steady state is achieved after dose escalation, with IV methadone, or when interacting medications are initated.
For patients on an oral methadone dose of 60mg/day, consider obtaining a follow-up ECG in 1-2 weeks

A previous EKG was not available for comparison and no follow up EKG was recorded, making the significance of these findings difficult to ascertain.
