Very good resource. The only thing I was hoping to get an answer for was whether it matters if you place the leads on the breast or under the breast fold. But otherwise, learnt some very interesting little tidbits about ECGs! Thanks

Because we don't often need to do 12 lead ECG's in theatre, I feel it is important to regularly refresh the knowledge so as to be competent when the need arises.
