Paucis Verbis: Right and posterior EKG leads

Posted Mar 11 2011 12:00am

A standard 12-lead EKG can be very telling for patients with chest pain or shortness of breath. A right ventricular (RV) and posterior wall infarct, however, can present very subtly. You can obtain special right-sided (V1R-V6R) and posterior leads (V7-V9), if you are concerned.

What are the indications for obtaining right-sided and posterior EKG leads?
