Question: EKG (ECG) - Relation of 'T' wave axis to QRS axis?

 Anonymous - Sat Dec 28, 2002 7:12 am

Hello everybody,
i wanted to know as to how to determine the axis of 'T' wave in ECG with the relation to that of axis of QRS complex

User avatar Dear Tejas,

Normally, "T" wave axis should always follow that of the QRS complex i.e. be upright in all leads except leads aVR which is always inverted (inverted QRS) and lead V1 which might be biphasic or even inverted.

Thank you very much for using our website
