Key Results Bipolar precordial leads MCL1 and MCL6 were valid substitutes for unipolar leads V1 and V6. The MCL1 and V1 leads were superior to the MCL6 and V6 leads for correct diagnosis of the origin of wide QRS complexes. The QRS morphology in leads MCL1 and V1 was clearly different in 9% of wide QRS beats (this did not affect diagnostic accuracy). The new criterion, measuring from onset of QRS to tallest peak or nadir in V6 or MCL6, showed that a measurement of 50 milliseconds or less favors a supraventricular origin, whereas a measurement of 70 milliseconds or more favors a ventricular origin.

Knowing the difference between volume and pressure ventilation is important so that the differences in waveforms can be understood and accurately interpreted. Competency verification depends on how the waveforms are used clinically and on the policies of individual institutions and critical care units. For example, if a pressure-time waveform is required to be graphed simultaneously with a pulmonary artery (PA) tracing in order to document endexpiration, the competency may be verified in conjunction 35 with verification of competencies in measuring PA pressures.

In the 2 patients who had myocardial infarction, the maximum ST deviation was measured on an ECG obtained before thrombolytic therapy and compared with the isoelectric PR segment. During follow-up, 18 patients were monitored in the cardiac care unit with a bedside monitor capable of measuring ST-segment deviation in 3 leads (1 precordial and 2 limb leads). Lead V1 was used as the precordial lead; the limb leads were the 2 that showed greatest ST deviation during the ischemic episode. Key Results Ischemia of the right coronary artery was detected in all cases by using a single lead: lead III or lead aVF.
