Correspondingly, what is the normal QRS duration?
The normal duration (interval) of the QRS complex is between 0.08 and 0.10 seconds — that is, 80 and 100 milliseconds. When the duration is between 0.10 and 0.12 seconds, it is intermediate or slightly prolonged. A QRS duration of greater than 0.12 seconds is considered abnormal.
One may also ask, what is normal P duration in ECG? Normal values for waves and intervals are as follows: RR interval: 0.6-1.2 seconds. P wave: 80 milliseconds. PR interval: 120-200 milliseconds.
Also question is, how is an ECG measured?
ECG paper is a grid where time is measured along the horizontal axis.
- Each small square is 1 mm in length and represents 0.04 seconds.
- Each larger square is 5 mm in length and represents 0.2 seconds.
What is a good ECG reading?
Normal range 120 – 200 ms (3 – 5 small squares on ECG paper). Normal range up to 120 ms (3 small squares on ECG paper). QT interval (measured from first deflection of QRS complex to end of T wave at isoelectric line). Normal range up to 440 ms (though varies with heart rate and may be slightly longer in females)
