2 THE BASICS: GRAPH PAPER TIMINGS ETC The graph paper that the ECG records on is standardized to run at 25mm/second, and is marked at 1 second intervals on the top and bottom. The horizontal axis correlates the length of each electrical event with its duration in time. Each small block (defined by lighter lines) on the horizontal axis represents 0.04 seconds. Five small blocks (shown by heavy lines) is a large block, and represents 0.20 seconds. The vertical axis on the monitor strip measures the amplitude (electrical voltage) in millimeters (mm). Each small block, as illustrated, is 1mm high. Each large block represents 5mm. WHAT EACH WAVE REPRESENTS P WAVE: Atrial depolarization Q wave : Septal depolarization RS Wave: Ventricular depolarization T wave: Ventricular repolarization RATE DETERMINATION Method III - Sequence Method Gives an approximate heart rate through simple waveform observation. Procedure To calculate the atrial rate, find a P wave that peaks on a heavy black line. Count off the next six heavy black lines as 300, 150, 100, 75, 60, and 50, respectively.

3 Find the heavy black line on which the next P wave peaks. The number assigned to this line is the estimated atrial rate. Calculate the ventricular rate by repeating the above calculation, using the R wave instead of the P wave. DETERMINE THE AXIS:see the predominant wave in I and avf and plot it to know the approx axis: I avf +90

4 LEFT AXIS DEVIATION RIGHT AXIS DEVIATION

5 The P Wave LAE RIGHT ATRIAL ENLARGEMENT The P wave represents atrial depolarization - the time necessary for an electrical impulse from the sinoatrial (SA) node to spread throughout the atrial musculature.

6 Location: Precedes QRS complex Amplitude: Should not exceed 2 to 2.5 mm in height Duration: 0.06 to 0.11 seconds THE P-R INTERVAL The P-R interval represents the time it takes an impulse to travel from the atria through the AV node, bundle of His, and bundle branches to the Purkinje's fibers. Location: Extends from the beginning of the P wave to the beginning of the QRS complex Duration: 0.12 to 0.20 seconds The QRS Complex The QRS complex represents ventricular depolarization. The QRS complex consists of 3 waves: the Q wave, the R wave, and the S wave.

7 The Q wave is always located at the beginning of the QRS complex. It may or may not always be present. The R wave is always the first positive deflection. The S wave, the negative deflection, follows the R wave. Location: Follows the P-R interval Amplitude: Normal values vary with age and sex Duration: No longer than 0.10 seconds The Q-T Interval This interval represents the time necessary for ventricular depolarization and repolarization. Location: Extends from the beginning of the QRS complex to the end of the T wave (includes the QRS complex, S-T segment, and the T wave) Duration: Varies according to age, sex, and heart rate See below for SCHWARTZ CRITERIA The T Wave The T wave represents the repolarization of the ventricles. On rare occasions, a U wave can be seen following the T wave. The U wave reflects the repolarization of the His-Purkinje's fibers. Location: Follows the S wave and the S-T segment Amplitude: 5mm or less in standard leads I, II, and III; 10mm or less in precordial leads V1-V6. Duration: Not usually measured The S-T Segment

8 The S-T segment represents the end of the ventricular depolarization and the beginning of ventricular repolarization. Location: Extends from the end of the S wave to the beginning of the T wave Duration: Not usually measured Interpreting an EKG Strip To identify dysrhythmias accurately, learn to systematically analyze cardiac and electrocardiographic factors by following these simple steps: Scan the EKG Look at the entire strip. Identify P-QRS-T complexes. Do these complexes seem to occur regularly? Do you see any aberrant (abnormal) beats? Does the heart rate appear to be fast, slow, or normal? Does the rhythm appear to be regular or irregular? Determine the Heart Rate Calculate the heart rate using one of the methods described above. Determine if the rate is within the normal limits ( beats/minute; less than 60 is bradycardia; greater than 100 is tachycardia. Determine if the atrial (P-P interval) rate and ventricular (R-R interval) rate are the same and associated. Inspect the P Waves Are P waves present? Do P waves have a normal shape - usually upright and rounded on the rhythm strip? Are all the P waves similar in size and shape? Do all the P waves point in the same direction? Do you see a 1:1 relationship between P waves and QRS complexes? Is each P wave the same distance from it's QRS complex? Measure the P-R Interval What is the duration of the P-R interval? (Normal 0.12 to 0.20 seconds) Is the P-R interval constant? Analyze the QRS Complex Are all the complexes the same size and shape? What is the duration of the QRS complex? (Normal duration is no more than 0.10 seconds; if

9 greater, it indicates a Bundle Branch Block (BBB)) Are all the QRS complexes the same distance from the T waves that follow them? Do all the QRS complexes point in the same direction? Are any QRS complexes present that appear different from the other QRS complexes on the strip? If so, measure and describe each one individually. Observe the S-T Segment Is the S-T segment on the baseline or is it above or below it? Could a P wave be hidden in the S-T segment? Inspect the T Wave Are T waves present? Do all the T waves have the same size and shape? Could a P wave be hidden in the T wave? Do the T waves point in the same direction as the associated QRS complex? Determine U Wave Presence Are U waves present? Analyze any Aberrant and Premature Contractions Where do they originate? Atria, AV node, or ventricle? Are they premature contractions, escape beats? Is a compensatory or noncompensatory pause present? How often do they occur? Death-Producing Arrhythmias These dysrhythmias are lethal and require immediate resuscitation in order to prevent death or permanent physical damage to the body. 1. Rate: o Look at the rate first.. o You can use the blocks on the strip to count.. (0.20 secs). 1 block between QRS complexes is 300 beats a min, 2 blocks is 150, 3 is 100, then 75, 60, 50.. Rate over 100 = tachycardia Rate under 60 = bradycardia 2. Rhythm: o Next look at the rhythm, A regular rhythm =normal rhythm or a brady or tachy as above. A regular rhythm with irregular beats = premature beats (either PAC's or PVC's)

10 An irregularly irregular rhythm = chaotic rhythm, often Atrial fibrillation or Ventricular Fibrillation, or frequent multifocal PVC's. 3. P wave: o Is there a P wave before each QRS? o Is there only one P wave per QRS? o Is it always the same configuration? o Is the distance between the P and the QRS constant? o Is the distance between a P and a QRS is.10 to.20 seconds? o P waves not present: No P, Narrow QRS, normal or slow, Regular = Junctional No P, Narrow QRS, fast or slow, Irregular = Atrial fib No P, Wide QRS, Slow, Regular= idioventricular No P, Wide QRS Fast, basically Regular =V Tach o 1 P per QRS 1 P wave, Narrow QRS, Regular, normal rate = NSR 1 P wave present but with different configurations: = wandering pacer o 1 P wave longer than.20sec: P with every QRS= 1st degree AV Block. PR constant with dropped QRS's= 2nd degree heart Block with progressive PR prolongation =2nd degree AV Block, Wenkebach (type I) No relationship between P's and QRS's = 3rd degree AV block o More than 1 P wave: irregularly irregular = Atrial Fib Many P's same configuration, Regular = Atrial flutter (P Rate often 300 and QRS rate might be 150 (2:1), or 100 (3:1)) P's grouped with regular R to R's = 2nd degree Block, type 11 Increasing PR intervals, Basically regular with dropped QRS's =2nd degree block type 1, Wenkebach No relationship between P's and QRS's = 3rd degree Block, Complete Heart Block 4. QRS: o Narrow or wide(.06.10)? o Regular? o Rate o P wave preceding each QRS? o Narrow Narrow,Regular, fast, P with every QRS = sinus Tachy, rate greater than 150= SVT (Supraventricular Ventricular Tachycardia) Narrow, Regular, slow, P with every QRS = sinus Brady o Mixed narrow and wide Mixed narrow and wide, regular wide beats =unifocal PVC's Mixed narrow and wide, irregular wide beats = multifocal PVC's o Wide Wide, Regular, slow or normal rate, P per QRS = BBB Wide,regular, fast, P per QRS = ST or SVT with aberrancy

11 Wide, regular, with no relationship between P and QRS =3rd degree AVBlock Wide, regular, slow =idioventricular Wide, regular, Fast = V Tach 5. QT/T wave abnormality: o ST depression = myocardial ischemia o ST elevation = myocardial injury o Prolonged QT with flat T waves = hypokalemiaavblock o Early Peaked T waves = hyperkalemia. 6. No P's or QRS's (as an afterthought): o Completely irratic = V fib o Straight line = asystole
