*Is the conduction normal or [[Conduction delay|prolonged]] (QRS-interval > 0,12s)?  
 
*Is the R wave propagation normal? Normally R waves become larger from V1-V5. At V5 it should be maximal. If the R wave in V2 is larger than in V3, this could be a sign of a (previous) [[Posterior MI|posterior myocardial infarction]]. Other causes are noted in the chapter [[Clockwise and Counterclockwise rotation]].

The basic questions in judging QRS morphology are:

If all these items are normal you can go on to the next step: ST morphology.
