Question: Why is the T wave going up?
|koka - Sat Jul 10, 2004 10:47 am||
T wave is showing the repolarization of the ventricles right? So it should be opposite to the QRS wave. So why they are both going up?

Depolarization and repolarization occur in the same direction and hence their axis is the same and if the qrs is predominantly positive then the t-wave would be positive and if the qrs is negative the t-wave would be negative as well. This of course is on the condition that there are no abnormalities.
Thank you very much for using our website https://doctorslounge.com and i hope that this information helped.
