Right-sided chest leads
showed no significant ST elevation.
On review, the preoperative ECG showed significant ST segment elevation in chest leads
which was missed by our 3-lead ECG monitor.
Electrocardiography on admission revealed marked positive U waves in V1-V3 chest leads
on electrocardiography (Fig.
The other chest leads
are then easily located; lead [V.
7) These peculiar ECG abnormalities are often more prominent in the right chest leads
placed at or above the third intercostal space--a higher-than-usual placement.
Prominent R-waves in the anterior chest leads
provide additional clues.
If all they did was to apply ECG chest leads
as the ambulance speeds you in to the waiting hospital team, they are changing your chances of life.
Chargers: Andrew Chest had 27 kills and Adam Allegro and Armand Gonzales 13 kills each to lead Agoura (4-6) to a 15-7, 15-8, 15-12 nonleague win over Lynwood.
When compared with standard chest leads
, the UNI-LEAD system improves the reproducibility of 12-lead ECG recordings by facilitating a more accurate, one-step electrode placement.
When it is intentional, such as recording the chest leads
on the right side looking for evidence of right ventricular infarction in a patient with an acute inferior infarct, this should be stated clearly on the tracing.
It is now over 100 years since the limb leads of the electrocardiogram (ECG) were introduced (1), 75 years since the unipolar chest leads
were designed (2) though only 65 years since the precordial electrode positions were standardised (3) and approximately the same time since augmented unipolar leads were introduced (4).
When compared with standard ECG chest leads
, the UNI-LEAD System improves the speed of acquisition by providing an accurate, one-step electrode placement.
