This e-book point of view. this is often partly II by means of a is meant to check, either seriously and in overview of the elemental physiologic and aspect, the purposes of this special procedure biophysical rules of electrocardiography in either medical and experimental environments. and a dialogue of easy mapping options.

The Hypertrophied Heart

Each time the guts is challenged with an elevated paintings load for a protracted interval, it responds by means of expanding its muscle mass--a phenomenon often called cardiac hypertrophy. even though cardiac hypertrophy is usually visible below physiological stipulations comparable to improvement and workout, a large choice of pathological situa­ tions comparable to high blood pressure (pressure overload), valvular defects (volume overload), myocardial infarction (muscle loss), and cardiomyopathy (muscle affliction) also are recognized to bring about cardiac hypertrophy.

For clinical studies, 120-240 electrodes are included; for animal studies fewer than 100 may be needed. The relationship of one such set of 150 electrodes to those used for vectorcardiography and for standard electrocardiography is shown in figure 4-2. It is obvious that comprehensive mapping grids cover more of the chest surface than do these other systems; large regions, particularly on the back and the right chest, are not routinely explored. Traditionally, more electrodes are located on the anterior than on the posterior torso.
