Model Study of the Lead System Influence on the Image of the Physical Equivalent Generator

  • Vavrinec Szathmáry


A number of investigators have studied the quality of vectorcardiographic lead systems. For instance Macfarlane and-Lawrie (1974) proposed the correction of potential values obtained by means of McFee-Parungao’s corrected orthogonal lead system. The present study was undertaken to observe the reflection of the dynamic changes of an actual current source in its image, determined by means of either McFee-Parungao’s or Frank’s orthogonal lead system.
