Abstract

Routine ECG methods provide information on the three main types of changes in the electrical activity of the heart:
  1. a)

    Changes in electrically active structures of the heart and/ or functional and metabolic disturbances of the electrical activity of the heart.

     
  2. b)

    Disturbances in the formation and conduction of impulses.

     
  3. c)

    Positional changes of the electrical axis of the heart.
