For the many who suffer an acute myocardial infarction each year, the key to early intervention, increased survival, and preserved myocardial function is rapid diagnosis. A pre-hospital 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) can hasten diagnosis and treatment; however, this is often deferred. A new precordial patch has been designed to facilitate placement of the chest leads. The purpose of this study was to demonstrate the equivalence of ECGs obtained with the V-QuickTM patch and traditional electrodes. Subjects (100) with cardiac or pulmonary disease underwent two 12-Lead ECGs, one with traditional electrodes and one with the patch. Computer generated measurements of waveform axes and amplitude were compared using multivariate analyses. No significant differences were found in the P, QRS, or T wave axes (F [1,97]=0.14, p=.707). A four factor ANOVA to examine differences in the Q, R, and S wave amplitude found no statistically significant differences (p > .05) between the type of electrode, gender, and type of disease. In this sample of persons with heart or lung disease, the precordial V-Quick TM patch provided ECGs that were equivalent to the ECGs obtained using traditional tab-style electrodes.
