Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator)

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • 12-lead ECG data [ Time Frame: 8 assessments including baseline (prior to start of infusion of study drug) until 24 four hours after start of infusion. ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
