The present article is the fourth in a series of 6 documents focused on providing current guidelines for the standardization and interpretation of the electrocardiogram (ECG). The project was initiated by the Council on Clinical Cardiology of the American Heart Association. The rationale for this project and the process for its implementation were described(More)
The present article introduces the second part of “Recommendations for Standardization and Interpretation of the Electrocardiogram.” The project was initiated by the Council on Clinical Cardiology of the American Heart Association and has been endorsed by the American College of Cardiology Foundation, the Heart Rhythm Society, and the International Society(More)
This is the sixth and final section of the project to update electrocardiography (ECG) standards and interpretation. The project was initiated by the Council on Clinical Cardiology of the American Heart Association (AHA). The rationale for the project and the process for its implementation were described in a previous publication.1 The ECG is considered the(More)
The detection and assessment of cardiac chamber hypertrophy has long been an important objective of clinical electrocardiography. Its importance has increased in recent years with the recognition that hypertrophy can be reversed with therapy, and that by doing so, adverse clinical outcomes can be prevented or delayed (1,2). (Note: This report uses the term(More)
This statement examines the relation of the resting ECG to its technology. Its purpose is to foster understanding of how the modern ECG is derived and displayed and to establish standards that will improve the accuracy and usefulness of the ECG in practice. Derivation of representative waveforms and measurements based on global intervals are described.(More)
This statement provides a concise list of diagnostic terms for ECG interpretation that can be shared by students, teachers, and readers of electrocardiography. This effort was motivated by the existence of multiple automated diagnostic code sets containing imprecise and overlapping terms. An intended outcome of this statement list is greater uniformity of(More)

OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to use the Framingham data base to devise and test an improvement in an electrocardiographic (ECG) voltage criterion for detecting left ventricular hypertrophy that is gender specific and adjusts for age and obesity. BACKGROUND Electrocardiographic detection of left ventricular hypertrophy has been receiving(More)
