Pediatric ECG Interpretation

During childbirth, the correct ventricle is bigger and thicker than the left ventricle, mirroring the more noteworthy physiological anxieties set upon it in utero (for example siphoning blood through the generally high-obstruction pneumonic course).

This creates an ECG picture reminiscent of right ventricular hypertrophy in the grown-up: checked rightward pivot, prevailing R wave in V1 and T-wave reversals in V1-3.

Conduction interims (PR interim, QRS length) are shorter than grown-ups because of the littler cardiovascular size. Pulses are a lot quicker in neonates and newborn children, diminishing as the youngster becomes more established.
