These “electrically silent” or “normal electrocardiographic” infarctions are uncommon. Location of Infarction/Ischemia There are three general EKG locations for infarctions or ischemia: inferior, anterior, and posterior. The portion of the heart that is affected by infarction or ischemia may be suspected by the electrocardiographic leads in which the changes are found. Even if the correlation is imperfect between the leads reﬂecting ischemia or infarction and the part of the heart affected, the designation of the location quickly identiﬁes the leads showing changes.
Step Three: Interpolate. Result: Leads III and aVL are closest to isoelectric and appear to be equally close to isoelectric. Interpretation: The axis is midway between the perpendiculars to leads III and aVL in the normal quadrant, or +45° Step 2 Left axis deviation Fig. 10 Determining the QRS axis. Step One: Examine leads I and aVF. Result: Lead I is positive; lead aVF is negative. Interpretation: The axis is in the left axis deviation quadrant. Step 1 Step Two: Since the axis is in the left axis deviation quadrant, look for an isoelectric lead in leads II and aVR.

Step 1 R aV Step Two: Since the axis is in the left axis deviation quadrant, look at leads II and aVR (along with I and aVF) for an isoelectric lead.
