Example text

This concept is really quite simple; an analogy may be helpful. During the course of a soccer match, a goalie may kick the ball many different times to various members of his team (or, if our hypothetical goalie is not very good, the other team). Some balls will go left, others right, still others straight down the field. However, by the end of the game, the average direction of all of the goalie's kicks and tosses is likely to be straight ahead, toward the opposing net. This average movement can be represented by a single arrow, or vector.

This circle is then marked off in degrees. 39 The limb leads view electrical forces (waves of depolarization and repolarization) moving up and down and 35 36 left and right through this circle. The frontal plane is a coronal plane. The limb leads view electrical forces moving up and down and left and right on the frontal plane. To produce the six leads of the frontal plane, each of the electrodes is variably designated as positive or negative (this is done automatically by circuitry inside the EKG machine).

Therefore, adherence to standard positioning protocols is very important to allow comparison between EKGs taken at different times in different settings. The Six Limb Leads The limb leads view the heart in a vertical plane called the frontal plane. The frontal plane can be envisioned as a giant circle superimposed on the patient's body. This circle is then marked off in degrees. 39 The limb leads view electrical forces (waves of depolarization and repolarization) moving up and down and 35 36 left and right through this circle.
