Study Sample Wide QRS tachycardias (n = 121) were recorded from 92 patients during a cardiac electrophysiologic study. Comparison Studied Leads MCL1 and MCL6 were compared with leads V1 and V6 to assess the accuracy of using information obtained with these leads to diagnose wide QRS tachycardias. In addition, the new criterion used in the previous study (reference 5 in this bibliography), measurement of onset of QRS to tallest peak or nadir in lead V6 or lead MCL6, was assessed for its usefulness in accurately diagnosing wide QRS tachycardias.

The study showed the best lead combinations and the best limb leads for detecting ischemia during the acute episode. This information is useful and has strong clinical implications for the use of bedside ST-segment monitoring. Study Procedures Thirty episodes of acute ischemia in 27 patients were recorded by using a standard 12-lead ECG, and these patients were followed up with ST-segment monitoring in a cardiac care unit. In the patients who had PTCA, baseline ECGs were recorded before the procedure, and continuous 12-lead ECGs were recorded during balloon inflation and until ST segments normalized.

Eighty-seven percent used lead II plus lead V1 (or MCL1) for dual-channel monitoring. Sixty-three percent demonstrated incorrect technique for obtaining their lead of choice: incorrect placement of electrodes (59%), incorrect attachment of lead wires to electrodes (26%), and both incorrect placement of electrodes and incorrect attachment of lead wires (15%). Eightyseven percent of nurses demonstrated incorrect technique for obtaining their 2 leads of choice for dual-channel monitoring: incorrect placement of electrodes (93%) and both incorrect placement of electrodes and incorrect attachment of lead wires (7%).
