    Notes: Abstract We report on two cases of mechanical termination of supraventricular tachycardia by chest thump which were followed by serious complications. In a 3-year-old boy with an otherwise normal heart, incessant supraventricular tachycardia was converted to sinus rhythm by a single precordial thump. This, however was followed by thrombo-embolic infarction of the left-sided middle cerebral artery. In another case of a 9-year-old girl, recurrent episodes of supraventricular tachycardia were associated with Ebstein anomaly of the tricuspid valve. Chest thump was successful in terminating supraventricular tachycardia but induced a short run of ventricular tachycardia which terminated itself and was then followed by sinus rhythm. It is concluded that even a slight precordial thump implies undetermined risks in the acute management of supraventricular tachycardia in children and should therefore be abandoned in favour of other methods.

    Notes: Summary The perceived exertion rating (RPE) scale of Borg was used to investigate the relationship between perceived exertion and pedalling rate. Normal subjects and patients with chronic obstructive lung disease (Cold) were studied in repeated test series. Work load, applied in a random order, varied from 2.5 to 10 mkp/s (patients) and 5 to 20 mkp/s (normals). Pedalling rate varied from 40 to 60, 80, 100 rpm. At constant work load, RPE decreases during increasing pedalling rate. With respect to validity, RPE, showing a closer relationship to work load than to heart rate, seems to reflect perception of physical stress rather than perception of physiological strain. In addition, the results raise the question of standardization of pedalling rate in bicycle ergometry.
