If aVF is isoelectric and I is negative, the axis is 180°. Step Two: If I and aVF show that the axis is in a quadrant, look further for an isoelectric lead. Again, this is the bipolar (limb) lead with equal area deﬂected above and below the baseline. If there is an isoelectric lead, the axis is perpendicular to that lead in the quadrant determined in the ﬁrst step. An isoelectric lead is not sought before quadrant determination because the axis could be in either direction perpendicular to the isoelectric lead, and observing the other leads becomes necessary to reveal which direction is correct.
Step One: Look at leads I and aVF. 12 s), lead I is positive and lead aVF is negative. Interpretation: The axis is in the left axis deviation quadrant. Step 1 R aV Step Two: Since the axis is in the left axis deviation quadrant, look at leads II and aVR (along with I and aVF) for an isoelectric lead. Result: Lead aVR is isoelectric. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. −50° 3 Myocardial Infarction and Ischemia Myocardial infarction occurs when oxygen delivery to the myocardium is inadequate for metabolic requirements and remains inadequate to the point of cellular death.
In general, an anatomical transmural infarction associated with the electrocardiographic changes characteristic of “subendocardial” infarction is smaller in magnitude than a transmural infarction with typical transmural changes on the EKG. Because of the discordance between anatomical ﬁndings and the electrocardiographic changes indicating “transmural” or “subendocardial” infarction, the terminology for infarctions changed to ﬁrst “Q wave,” then “ST elevation” myocardial infarction (STEMI) vs. “non-Q wave” or “nonST elevation” myocardial infarction (non-STEMI), respectively .
