LEAD SELECTION FOR CONTINUOUS EKG MONITORING Lead selection is
dependent on the patient's history, the reason for admission, and the reason for
continuously monitoring electrical signals that are traveling through the patient's
heart. To assist in choosing the best lead for continuous EKG monitoring, the
clinician can ask the following questions: • Why does the patient require
continuous monitoring? • What lead will offer the most information based on the
patient's condition?

Indeed, STsegment changes have been reported in normal subjects using
ambulatory EKG monitoring. Posture and positional changes can also affect the
STsegment. Patients with nonspecific Twave abnormalities in their resting EKG
may develop STsegment depression while standing or with hyperventilation [26].
Intermittent STsegment depression associated with respiration has been
observed during exercise stress testing in apparently normal subjects [27]. Drugs
such as digitalis ...

WHAT TO DO: EVALUATE Basic education for dysrhythmia monitoring often
encourages students to focus on looking at Lead II because it is usually the best
lead for identifying p waves if they are present. Identification of the p wave is
essential in determining whether the EKG rhythm originates from the sinus node
or from another location in the heart. Lead II is also a good lead for looking at
ischemic changes in the inferior wall of the left ventricle. However, Lead II is
sometimes not the ...

EKG monitoring has long been the cornerstone of monitoring for postoperative
cardiac events; conventional EKG monitoring for the detection of transient ST-
segment changes has frequently been used as a surrogate marker of cardiac
ischemia in clinical trialsro'ooo'a37 Despite this widespread use, the data on
postoperative EKG monitoring are mixed, and recent studies have questioned the
ability of EKG monitoring alone to adequately detect ischemia across all
spectrums of cardiac ...

EKG monitoring overcomes the shortcoming of classic EKG of offering only short-
span information. Selflimiting episodes of heart disease classically consist of
arrhythmia, but modern technology allows monitoring short-lived ischemic
episodes as well. Commonly used EKG monitoring techniques include the
following: inhospital monitoring (in the ICU, or ambulatory monitoring, also called
telemetry); Holter monitoring; loop recorders; and self-monitoring. The EKG
monitoring data are ...
