The Electrocardiogram in Heart Disease Detection
A Comparison of the Multiple and Single Lead Procedures
In a study of a group of 2000 volunteers in a New England community the authors compare the relative merits of the 12-lead and a simplified lead I electrocardiogram in the detection of heart disease. The contribution the electrocardiograph would make if included in a heart disease screening program is evaluated. A possible heart disease screening method is suggested.
