For more presentations www Reading 12-Lead ECGs The 12-Lead ECG contains information that will assist you in making diagnostic and treatment decisions in your clinical practice. In previous modules you learned how to read and interpret parts of the ECG. Now, we will bring all that you have learned together so that you can systematically read and interpret a 12-lead ECG. The information will be divided into two modules, VII a and VII b .

For more presentations www Reading 12-Lead ECGs The best way to read 12-lead ECGs is to develop a step- by-step approach (just as we did for analyzing a rhythm strip). In these modules we present a 6-step approach: 1. Calculate RATE 2. Determine RHYTHM 3. Determine QRS AXIS 4. Calculate INTERVALS 5. Assess for HYPERTROPHY 6. Look for evidence of INFARCTION

For more presentations www Rate Rhythm Axis Intervals Hypertrophy Infarct If you use the rhythm strip portion of the 12-lead ECG the total length of it is always 10 seconds long. So you can count the number of R waves in the rhythm strip and multiply by 6 to determine the beats per minute. Rate? 12 (R waves) x 6 = 72 bpm
