Two of the most common clinical causes of RAA are pulmonary disease and congenital heart disease. The pulmonary disease may be either acute (bronchial asthma, pulmonary embolism) or chronic (emphysema, bronchitis). Congenital heart lesions that produce RAA include pulmonic valve stenosis, atrial septal defects, Ebstein’s anomaly (a malformation of the tricuspid valve), and tetralogy of Fallot.

With a horizontal axis, the main QRS deflection is positive in leads I and aVL and the T wave is also positive in these leads. With an electrically vertical axis, the QRS is positive in leads II, III, and aVF and the T wave is also positive in these leads. On some normal ECGs with a vertical axis, however, the T wave may be negative in lead III. *In children and in some normal adults, a downward T wave may extend as far left as lead V3 or V4 in leads with an rS- or RS-type complex. This is known as the juvenile T wave pattern.

From this point, attention is focused primarily on abnormal ECG patterns. This chapter discusses the effects of enlargement of the four cardiac chambers on the ECG. Cardiac enlargement refers to either dilation of a heart chamber or hypertrophy of the heart muscle: T 1. In dilation of a chamber, the heart muscle is stretched and the chamber becomes enlarged. For example, with congestive heart failure (CHF) caused by acute aortic valve regurgitation, the left ventricle dilates. 2. In cardiac hypertrophy, the heart muscle fibers actually increase in size, with resultant enlargement of the chamber.
