Aim: This study aims to investigate the electrocardiogram characteristics of the different motor types of Parkinson’s disease.
Methods: The data on 118 patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD), who were initially diagnosed in the Outpatient and Inpatient Department, was collected. Among these 118 PD patients, 74 patients were assigned to the PIGD group, while 44 patients were assigned to the TD group, and their clinical features were analyzed, which included age, course, disease classification, and electrocardiogram parameters (PR, QRS, QT interval, and QTC).
Results: The QT interval in PD patients was positively correlated with the course of the disease and Hoehn–Yahr stage, and the QT interval in the PIGD group was longer than that in the TD group.
Conclusion: A prolonged QT interval may indicate a longer disease period and a more severe disease condition.

Keywords: Parkinson’s disease, autonomic nervous function, symptom, electrocardiogram, ECG, QT interval
