Sample text

Sometimes it is seen in the ECGs of healthy people. 2. RAD is present if the R wave in lead III is taller than the R wave in lead II. In addition, lead I shows an rS complex. RAD can be seen in several conditions, including right ventricular hypertrophy, lateral wall myocardial infarction, chronic lung disease, and left 56 P A R T O N E Basic Principles and Patterns posterior fascicular block (hemiblock) (see Chapter 24). In addition, RAD is sometimes seen in the ECGs of normal people. More rarely, the QRS complex is biphasic in all six limb leads.

In dilation of a chamber, the heart muscle is stretched and the chamber becomes enlarged. For example, with congestive heart failure (CHF) caused by acute aortic valve regurgitation, the left ventricle dilates. 2. In cardiac hypertrophy, the heart muscle fibers actually increase in size, with resultant enlargement of the chamber. For example, aortic stenosis, which obstructs the outflow of blood from the left ventricle, leads to hypertrophy of the left ventricular muscle. Other situations (described later in this chapter) can result in hypertrophy of the atria and right ventricle.

C. As a general rule, the P-QRS-T pattern in lead I resembles that in lead aVL. Leads aVR and II usually show reverse patterns. Lead aVF usually resembles lead III. 2. The six chest (precordial) leads (V1 to V6) record voltages from the heart as directed onto the horizontal plane of the body (dividing the body into an upper and a lower half). They are taken with electrodes in specific anatomic locations (see Fig. 3-8). In addition to the 12 conventional leads, ECGs can be taken in special ways.
