- 9. Einthoven’s Triangle• Electrically, leads I, II, & III form an equilateral triangle.• Einthoven’s Law I + (-II) + III = 0
- 10. Einthoven’s Law• How it works• Lead I – The R wave is about 7 1/2 mm tall. – The S wave is about 2 1/2 mm deep. – Subtract the S wave from the R wave • you come up with 5 mm.
- 11. Einthoven’s Law• Lead I = 5mm• Lead II – It’s essentially a monophasic QS complex. – About -10 mm.
- 12. Einthoven’s Law• Lead I = 5mm• Lead II = -10mm• Lead III – R wave that is about 1 mm high. – The S wave is about 16 mm deep. – Subtract the S wave from the R wave. – -15 mm.
- 13. Einthoven’s Law• Lead I = 5mm• Lead II = -10mm• Lead III = -15mm
- 14. Einthoven’s Law• Lead I = 5mm• Lead II = -10mm• Lead III = -15mm – Plug the numbers in. • I + (-II) + III = 0 • 5 + 10 -15 = 0
