This is the time that it takes the LV to be activated, and it is longer when the ventricle is thickened. 5). The diagnosis can be made when just some of these features are present, but with fewer findings the certainty of the diagnosis is lower. 1. A point total of 5 makes the diagnosis of LVH, and with 4 points, the patient has probable LVH. Use of multiple diagnostic criteria rather than QRS voltage alone gives good specificity (fewer false positives, less overdiagnosis).  0RACTICE%#'S)NTERPRETATIONAND2EVIEW On the other hand, the sensitivity of the ECG in detecting LVH is poor; it tends to underdiagnose.

When it is negative in those leads, it indicates an ectopic atrial pacemaker located in the lower part of the atrium and depolarizing the atrium from bottom to top. This has little clinical significance, but it is worth comment in the context of reading ECGs. 3). The left ventricle is much thicker than the right and produces more voltage. The net vector of ventricular depolarization is therefore down and/or to the left in the frontal plane, normally about 60°, but ranging from 30° to 110°. Measurement of the QRS axis in the frontal plane is a technical challenge for most students.

There is a mismatch between blood supply  0RACTICE%#'S)NTERPRETATIONAND2EVIEW and demand across the stenosed artery, and the region of myocardium farthest from the epicardial artery—the subendocardium—is the most ischemic. 10 is a good example. It was recorded during a treadmill stress test from a middle-aged woman with chronic, stable angina pectoris. At rest, she had no ST segment depression. During exercise, heart rate and systemic blood pressure rose, both in direct proportion to the increase in cardiac work.
