By Antoni Bayés de Luna
Electrocardiography is a straightforward research to accomplish, yet actual interpretation could be demanding. This booklet takes a logical and systematic method of ECG interpretation, starting with the fundamentals of standard adaptations and working in flip with atrial abnormalities, ventricular growth, ventricular conduction defects and ischemic center sickness.
Extensively illustrated with ECG tracings that supplement the textual content, this publication offers transparent and concise reasons of conventional ideas of electrocardiography and combines them with updates at the most up-to-date advancements within the box.
In 22 medical circumstances, Professor Bayés de Luna illustrates the rules of the publication via integrating electrocardiographic positive factors with scientific findings for an intensive and methodical method of cardiac disorder. usual self-assessments permit readers to guage their realizing of the ECG and toughen key options.
This booklet is a perfect creation to common and irregular ECG styles. it's really worthwhile for scientific scholars, citizens / junior medical professionals and nurses who desire to expand their talents in electrocardiography.

2 Tall R wave with ‘s’ in V5, V6 and with an rSR pattern in V1 and P wave of biatrial enlargement (Figure 39A). Ventricular enlargement 49 3 QRS complexes within normal limits, but with significant repolarisation abnormalities (negative T wave and depression of ST segment), mainly when the patient presents atrial fibrillation. This type of ECG can be found in the elderly with advanced heart diseases and biventricular enlargement. 4 Small S wave in V1 with a deep S wave in V2 and predominant R wave in ˆ V5 and V6 together with an AQRS shifted to the right in the frontal plane or an SI -, SII -, SIII -type morphology (Figure 39B).
Those with good specificity (≥85%) and acceptable sensitivity (between 40% and 55%) include Cornell’s voltage criteria and the Rohmilt and Estes scoring system. These diagnostic criteria have many limitations, which are in part secondary to the fact that their usefulness differs according to the population group in which they are employed. According to the Bayes theorem, the possibility that ECG may be useful to diagnose left ventricular enlargement is quite high in a group of severely hypertensive patients and low in an asymptomatic normotensive adults.
According to the loop–hemifield correlation, in adults, the T wave is positive but with the up-slope slower than the down-slope in all leads, except VR (as the T loop is located in the negative hemifield of that lead). It is usually negative, flattened or occasionally slightly positive in V1, and sometimes may also be flattened or slightly negative in V2, and sometimes even in V3 in women and in Blacks. In III and VF, the T wave may be flattened or even slightly negative. In children, a negative T wave of characteristic morphology seen in the right precordial leads is the normal pattern (children’s repolarisation) (Figure 22E).
