Hi Liz,

Thanks for the ECG, sorry I am just having a look now.

About the measures of the complexes :
The P wave duration seems normal to me.
The QRS complexes seem to start with the Q, then reach the R (which the amplitude seems normal) and start to go down by just a bit before having this “plateau” and then go down with a negative T wave before it comes back to the baseline.
So I would say the duration is increased which would be a sign of left ventricular enlargement and/or the ST interval is elevated, which could be hypoxia or artefactual?

For this extra abnormal complexe at the beginning, it seems to start as a normal P-wave, and seems to happen during it. By the shape of it would it be more a ventricular origin as it looks quite large ?
