* at the right of that are below each other the [[heart frequency]], the [[Conduction time intervals (PQ,QRS,QT)|conduction time intervals]] (PQ,QRS,QT/QTc), and the [[cardiac axis]] (P-top axis, QRS axis and T-top axis)

* farther to the right is the interpretation of the ECG written (this often misses in a 'fresh' ECG, but later the interpretation of the cardiologist or cumputer will be added)

* down left is the 'paper speed' (25mm/s on the horizontal ax), the sensitivity (10mm/mV) and the filter's frequency (40Hz, filters noise from eg. lights)

* finally there is a calibration on the ECG, on the beginning of every lead is a vertical block that shows how high 1mV is. So the height and depth of these signal are a measurement for the voltage. If this is not the set 10mm, there is something wrong with the machine.
