Computerised ST segment analysis was used to compare the frequency of ischaemia occurring in electrocardiographic leads II, V5, CS5 and CB5. Three out of 15 patients with ischaemic heart disease developed ischaemic changes, which were evident in all four leads in each patient. A single bipolar lead may be substituted for a true V5 lead when monitoring patients at increased risk of developing myocardial ischaemia. ST segment analysis facilitates the early diagnosis of peri-operative myocardial ischaemia, which may otherwise be missed on the standard electrocardiogram.
