    first part of the ventricles to be activated is the septum, followed by the endocardium. Finally, the impulse spreads outwards to the epicardium. The spread of the cardiac impulse gives rise to the main deflections of the electrocardiogram: P, QRS and T waves (Fig. 1.2): The P wave represents...

    time intervals on ECG are helpful in diagnosing a potential heart problem. In every ECG, there are boundaries or intervals that are used to explain the nature of any heartbeat. Such intervals are P-R interval, QRS complex, the Q-T segment, the P-R segment, the P and T waves. P-R interval shows the time...

    principal deflections above and below the baseline: P wave, QRS complex, and T wave. The P wave is produced when a signal from the SA node spreads through the atria and depolarizes them. The P wave begins during the PQ segment. This segment represents the time required for impulses to travel from the SA...

    P wave; it represents atrial depolarization (Eric, 2011). Next is the QRS complex; the QRS consist of the Q, R and S. The complex will occur because of the electrical events produced as the ventricles depolarize (Eric, 2011). Lastly, there is the T wave; it represents the ventricular repolarization...
