Electrocardiogram of a 71-year old man with chronic stable angina.
QRS axis 60º
Interpretation: Regular sinus rhythm. Normal ECG.
In approximately half of patients with chronic, stable, effort-related angina, the resting electrocardiogram is normal. The extent of underlying coronary artery disease does not correlate well with resting ECG, although normal resting tracing is indicating a more favourable long-term prognosis.
More complex and interesting ECGs to come next month.
