Abstract

Limb electrodes for the 12 lead ECG are routinely placed on the torso during exercise stress testing or when limbs are clinically inaccessible. It is unclear whether such electrode modification produces ECG changes in healthy male or female subjects that are clinically important according to the 2009 AHA, ACCF, HRS guidelines. We therefore measured whether ECG modification produced clinically important or false positive ECG changes e.g., appearance of Q waves in leads V(1-3), ST changes greater than 0.1 mV, T wave changes greater than 0.5 mV (frontal plane) or 1 mV (transverse plane), QRS axis shifts or alterations to QTc/P-R/QRS intervals.
