Device serves as a voltmeter measures the flow of electricity Unipolar vs Bipolar Leads Bipolar Leads 1 positive and 1 negative electrode RA always negative LL always positive

Traditional limb leads are examples of these Lead I Lead II Lead III View from a vertical plane Unipolar Leads 1 positive electrode & 1 negative reference point

calculated by using summation of 2 negative leads Augmented Limb Leads aVR, aVF, aVL view from a vertical plane Precordial or Chest Leads V1-V6 view from a horizontal plane The 12-Lead ECG Format

Leads typically produced by devices used prehospital The 12-Lead ECG Format Fields not typically produced by devices used prehospital The 12-Lead ECG Format Device prints out 2.5 sec each of Leads I, II, III

then switches to aVR, aVL, aVF then switches to V1, V2, V3 and then to V4, V5, V6 (varies by device) Device computer analyzes all 10 sec of all 12 leads but only prints 2.5 sec of each group The 12-Lead ECG Format The computer diagnosis is not always accurate!!! The 12-lead ECG Format

The computer IS very accurate at measuring intervals & durations Waveform Components: R Wave First positive deflection; R wave includes the downstroke returning to the baseline Waveform Components: Q Wave

First negative deflection before R wave; Q wave includes the negative downstroke & return to baseline Waveform Components: S Wave Negative deflection following the R wave; S wave includes departure from & return to baseline Waveform Components: QRS

Q waves Can occur normally in several leads Normal Q waves called physiologic Physiologic Q waves < .04 sec (40ms) Pathologic Q >.04 sec (40 ms) Waveform Components: QRS Q wave

Measure width Pathologic if greater than or equal to 0.04 seconds (1 small box) Waveform Components: QS Complex Entire complex is negatively deflected; No R wave present Waveform Components: J-Point Junction between end of QRS and beginning of ST segment; Where QRS stops & makes a sudden sharp change of direction

Waveform Components: ST Segment Segment between J-point and beginning of T wave Waveform Components: ST Segment Need reference point Compare to TP segment DO NOT use PR segment as reference! ST

TP Waveform Components: Practice Find J-points and ST segments Waveform Components: Practice Find J-points and ST segments Lead Views
