P waves: • Relationship of P waves to QRS complex: is each P wave followed by a QRS complex? • Is the PR interval the same duration for all complexes? • If all P waves and QRS complexes are completely unrelated = AV dissociation. QRS complex: Look at the: • axis • amplitude • duration—short (narrow complex), normal or widened (broad complex)? Broad complexes = possible bundle branch block (BBB), drug toxicity, electrolyte abnormalities. ST segment: Is the ST segment: • isoelectric (lies horizontally on the baseline)—normal?
Axis: • Is the average direction of the spread of depolarisation through the ventricles when looking at the front of the patient. • Leads aVR and II look at the heart from opposite directions. , deflections are mainly negative in aVR and positive in II). • Normal axis is a positive deflection in I, II, III as the depolarising wave is spreading towards these leads. 2 Normal QRS axis and axis deviation Most ECGs show either a normal axis or left or right axis deviation. Occasionally, the QRS axis is between −90° and 180°.
