Electrocardiogram (ECG) analysis is a common noninvasive technique used for diagnosis of cardiac disease in the clinical and research branches of veterinary medicine. Accurate analysis of P-wave duration, amplitude, and morphology is crucial to identification of morphologic and functional changes of the atria. The published accepted maximal normal value for P-wave duration in the dog is < or = 40 milliseconds. We looked at P-wave duration in ECG obtained as part of routine quarantine health… CONTINUE READING
