Abstract

Sometimes an ECG abnormality is a variation of normal.

  • Look for abnormalities other than those directly related to symptoms the patient is presenting with.
  • In this case, several specialists called the ECG normal until their attention was drawn to the possible voltage abnormality. Everyone concentrated on the patient’s rhythm and possible palpitations.
