Upon completion of the accompanying narrative and practice the student will be able to:
- Associate the views of a 12-Lead ECG with specific surfaces and the primary artery to that region of the heart
- Know the difference between indicative and reciprocal views
- Measure and recognize electrocardiographic changes caused by STEMI
People may choose to analyze ECG’s in a number of different ways. The sequence doesn’t necessarily matter as long as you gather and report the proper information each time. I read from left to right as much as possible (in anatomic groupings).
If your protocols are different, always follow them.
The following slides will review the leads, surfaces, and associated coronary arteries which commonly supply that portion of the heart.
