Hi!

 

I am a college professor in exercise physiology. The attached ECG was obtained during a submax treadmill test on a student (rest & recovery shown). Can someone please ‘interpret’ this for me – specifically what appears to be a second S-wave seen in aVF and II (in rest & recovery) and aVL (in recovery).

 

Also why did QRS switches from mostly positive to mostly negative in aVL?

 

These two things appeared “abnormal” to me so I searched the internet for an explanation but had no luck.

 

Note: the subject had a hairy chest and towards the end of the test electrode VI was not sticking very well so he held it in place.

 

My sincere thanks for your help!!

I am sorry but we are not qualified to interpret ECG's here in the forum as this is something you would need to have a Medical Dr. provide for you. 
 
This forum is for peer suport of member's with heart problems and should never take the place of medical advice.
 
I thank you in advance for your understanding.
 
Kindly,
Kitt
