Sample text

The Q wave is the first negative deflection following the P wave but before the R wave. Ⅲ A lead is a single view of the heart, often produced by a combination of information from several electrodes. Ⅲ The R wave is the first positive wave following the P wave, or the first positive wave of the QRS complex. Ⅲ A monitoring lead is one that clearly shows individual waves and their relationship to other waves. All the examples in this book are Lead II (although this is only one of many monitoring leads).

This does not mean that Lead II is better than MCL1, nor does it mean that you must always use Lead II for monitoring arrhythmias. The same patterns apply whether you view them in Lead II, MCL1, or any other monitoring lead. Regardless of which lead is used, the remain the same, so it doesn’t matter which lead you use to learn basic arrhythmias. Just because the examples in this book are Lead II doesn’t mean that it is the only monitoring lead, or even the best. You will encounter other monitoring leads as you learn more about EKGs, but for now you can assume that the information in this book refers to unless otherwise specified.

On the EKG tracing, this delay at the AV is seen as a short isoelectric segment between the wave and the next wave. This segment is called the segment. 35. If you wished to refer to all of the electrical activity in the heart before the impulse reached the ventricles, you would look at the PR interval. This includes both the P wave and the PR segment. The P wave displays depolarization, and the PR segment is caused by the in the AV node. Therefore, the PR includes all atrial and nodal activity.
