Abstract

The standard electrocardiogram (ECG) utilizes the two viewpoints presented in Chapter 1(see Figs. 1.8 and 1.13): base–apex (long axis) and left–right (short axis) plus 10 otherviewpoints for recording cardiac electrical activity. Each view is provided by recording theelectrical potential difference between a positive and a negative pole, referred to as a lead.Six of these leads provide views in the frontal plane of the body and six provide views in thetransverse (horizontal) plane of the body. A single recording electrode on the body surface...
