1 17 18 Chapter 2 The 12 EKG Leads A total of 12 leads, or views, are represented on the modern EKG. The 12 leads are consistently arranged in a standard pattern. The ﬁrst six leads represent the frontal plane (or view) of the heart. They are called the limb leads and are named I, II, III, AVR, AVL, and AVL. The next six leads represent the horizontal plane (or view) of the heart. They are called precordial (in front of the heart) leads, and are named V1, V2, V3, V4, V5, and V6. 2 HERE] Sometimes an artifact appears where the leads change on the paper (the red arrows).
The downward wave that follows is an S wave. 9 does not contain a Q wave, the whole complex is still called a QRS! 10, these deﬂections are called QS waves. 11. 11 S 30 Chapter 3 Repolarization of the Ventricles: The T Wave The third deﬂection on the EKG is the T wave. The T wave represents ventricular repolarization. The ventricles must repolarize or recharge themselves before the next cardiac cycle can begin. 12 Methodology: Measurements and Their Clinical Signiﬁcance II This page intentionally left blank Heart Rate 4 Self-Study Objectives ■ Deﬁne and Identify the following: Sinus rhythm The Heart Rate: A Mandatory Part of an EKG Interpretation The EKG provides a skilled reader with a wealth of information about the heart.
Although the complex is called the QRS complex, it does not always contain a Q wave, an R wave, and an S wave. 8, the complex is considered to have a Q wave. The next upward wave is called an R wave. 9, then this wave is called an R wave. The downward wave that follows is an S wave. 9 does not contain a Q wave, the whole complex is still called a QRS! 10, these deﬂections are called QS waves. 11. 11 S 30 Chapter 3 Repolarization of the Ventricles: The T Wave The third deﬂection on the EKG is the T wave.
