Dextrocardia ECG Review

Dextrocardia occurs when the heart is positioned in the right side of the chest instead of the left.

The ECG findings include:

  1. Predominantly negative P wave, QRS complex, and T wave in lead I.
  2. Low voltage in leads V3-V6 (since these leads are placed on the left side of the chest).
