Submitted: Ms. M. Codispoti MUHC 1999 These are two 12 lead electrocardiograms from the same person taken one after another. The leads have been displaced from the conventional positions on the top recording.
The top one was taken with right sided chest leads. This can be useful for detecting right ventricular infarction, but unfortunately is not recognized by most EKG machines and mislabeled on the recording.
