Putting It All Together

Objectives

  1. Choose correct electrode placement required for accurate 12-lead ECG acquisition.
  2. Assess normal and abnormal patterns on each lead of the 12-lead ECG.
  3. Determine cardiac axis using lead I and aVF.
  4. Analyze the 12-lead ECG features seen in atrial and ventricular hypertrophy.
  5. Specify the features of right bundle branch block from the features of left bundle branch block.
  6. Evaluate patterns of infarct, injury, and ischemia on the 12-lead.
  7. Utilize morphology in Lead V1 and V6 to differentiate ventricular tachycardia from SVT with aberrant conduction.
  8. Categorize high risk features for Torsades de Pointes and other cardiac arrhythmias.
