Try to interprete this ECG using the 7+2 step method
- Following the 7+2 steps:
- This is a regular rhythm and every QRS complex is preceded by a p wave. The p wave is positive in II,III, and AVF and thus originates from the sinus node. Conclusion: sinus rhythm.
- Use the 'count the squares' method (a bit less than 3 large squares ~> 300-150-100), thus about 110 bpm and thus sinustachycardia.
- Conduction (PQ,QRS,QT)
- PQ-interval=0.10sec (2.5 small squares), QRS duration=0.10sec, QT interval=320ms
- Positive in I, II, negative in III and AVF. Thus a horizontal (normal) heart axis.
- P wave morphology
- The p wave is rather large in II, but does not fulfill the criteria for right atrial dilatation.
- QRS morphology
- The QRS shows a slurred upstroke or delta wave.
- ST morphology
- Negative T wave in I and AVF. Flat ST in V3-V5.
- Compare with the old ECG (not available, so skip this step)
