Determine quadrant 2. Identify isoelectric lead, if present 3. 2 Determining the quadrant of the axis Lead I + + − − Lead aVF + − + − Quadrant Normal Left axis deviation Right axis deviation Extreme axis deviation The leads to examine for an isoelectric lead depend on which quadrant the axis is in; they are the leads whose perpendiculars trisect the quadrant the axis is in, based on Step One.

Occasionally a distinction is made between the anteroseptal and anterolateral portions of the anterior wall. “Anteroseptal” and “anterolateral” are simply subsegments of the anterior wall, with changes limited to V1–3 or V4–6, respectively. I believe this subdivision of the anterior wall in reference to myocardial injury is of little practical importance, but an anteroseptal infarction with precordial changes limited to V1–3 probably does suggest a less extensive infarction than when the changes are seen in most or all of the precordial leads.

But the ST elevations are diffusely present in almost all the leads, not just in an inferior or anterior distribution. Additionally, there may be PR segment depression but there are never reciprocal changes with acute pericarditis. ST Elevation: Differential Diagnosis 55 Fig. 7 Reciprocal changes. These are the limb leads of a patient with an acute inferior transmural myocardial infarction. There is marked ST segment elevation in II, III, and aVF, but reciprocal ST segment depression in leads I and aVL (arrows) a b Fig.
