Five large boxes measure one second of time. ) The result is the heart rate in beats per minute. In the example below, there are 7 QRS complexes in the 6-second block. Multiplying 7 complexes (in 6 seconds) by 10 yields a heart rate of 70 per minute. Of course, since the rhythm is atrial ﬁbrillation, this rate of 70 represents the ventricular rate. 1 provides a quick reference for accurate determination of the heart rate when the patient is in a regular rhythm. 1 Table of Heart Rates Number of Little Boxes Heart Rate Number of Little Boxes Heart Rate Number of Little Boxes Heart Rate 5 300 18 83 31 48 6 250 19 79 32 47 7 214 20 75 33 45 8 188 21 71 34 44 9 167 22 68 35 43 10 150 23 65 36 42 11 136 24 63 37 41 12 125 25 60 38 39 13 115 26 58 39 38 14 107 27 56 40 38 15 100 28 54 41 37 16 94 29 52 42 36 17 88 30 50 43 35 Heart Rate Clinical Signiﬁcance of Heart Rates: Summary The heart rate is a vital sign and conveys critical information.
They are called the limb leads and are named I, II, III, AVR, AVL, and AVL. The next six leads represent the horizontal plane (or view) of the heart. They are called precordial (in front of the heart) leads, and are named V1, V2, V3, V4, V5, and V6. 2 HERE] Sometimes an artifact appears where the leads change on the paper (the red arrows). It has no medical meaning, and simply signals that the EKG machine has changed the lead that it is recording. 2 19 Physiology Review of the Heart’s Conduction System EKG Paper and Time Lines The EKG is recorded on special standardized paper that scrolls out of the machine at a speciﬁc and controlled speed.
Calculating the heart rate is easy because the EKG is always recorded on graph paper that measures time as it travels horizontally through the machine. Ignoring the heart rate on an EKG is the single most common mistake in learning to read an EKG! 1 33 34 Chapter 4 Measurement of the Heart Rate The most accurate way to measure heart rate is by measuring the R-R interval. The R-R interval is the distance from one R wave to the next R wave. When measuring the R-R interval, take the beginning of one QRS complex, and count the number of “little boxes” up to the beginning of the next QRS complex.
