I am known for a saying at work :
“If you are going to do a 4, do a 12!”
All I am saying is that if you are concerned enough about a patient to put on a 4 lead ECG, then why not go the full hog and just put on the chest leads too.
Some may say it is a little bit over kill, but how on this earth can you fully assess someones heart when only looking at leads II, III and aVF.
As I said at the beginning,
If you are going to do a 4, do a 12!
Do you agree? Feel free to say no if you dont.
