I aVR V1 V4 II aVL V2 V5 III aVF V3 V6 Reversible ST segment elevation associated with coronary artery spasm ST segment elevation in leads V1 to V3 in patient with left ventricular hypertrophy 36 10 Myocardial ischaemia Kevin Channer, Francis Morris In clinical practice electrocardiography is most often used to evaluate patients with suspected ischaemic heart disease.

There is intraobserver variation in the measurement of this ST segment depression, and therefore a computerised analysis that accompanies the exercise test can assist but not replace the clinical evaluation of the test. A B Normal electrocardiographic changes during exercise x x x x x x P wave increases in height R wave decreases in height J point becomes depressed ST segment becomes sharply upsloping Q-T interval shortens T wave decreases in height C Abnormal changes during exercise The standard criterion for an abnormal ST segment response is horizontal (planar) or downsloping depression of > 1 mm.

5 ml oxygen/kg per minute, which is the oxygen consumption of an average individual at rest x To carry out the activities of daily living an exercise intensity of at least 5 METs is required 41 ABC of Clinical Electrocardiography sitting and standing, are recorded as electrocardiographic changes, particularly T wave inversion, may occur as the patient stands up to start walking on the treadmill. A short period of electrocardiographic recording during hyperventilation is also valuable for identifying changes resulting from hyperventilation rather than from coronary ischaemia.
