    2. R in V5 or V6 exceeds 26 mm
    3. R + S in any precordial lead exceeds 45 mm

IV. Criteria: Estes

  1. Major criteria: 3 points if all present
    1. R or S in limb lead exceeds 19 mm
    2. S in V1 or V2 exceeds 29 mm
    3. R in V5 or V6 exceeds 30 mm

    4. QRS wider than 0.09 seconds: 1 point
    5. Intrinsicoid deflection in V5-6 over 0.05: 1 point
    6. P-terminal force in V1 exceeds 0.04: 3 points
  3. Interpretation

    2. Probable Left Ventricular Hypertrophy: 4 points

V. Findings: LVH with Repolarization Abnormality (or Strain Pattern)

  1. Precautions
    1. LVH with Repolarization Abnormality may be confused with acute Myocardial Infarction
    2. Always exclude Acute Coronary Syndrome
    3. Compare old Electrocardiograms
  2. Asymmetric T Wave Inversion
    1. Leads I, aVL, V4, V5, V6
  3. ST segment Depression (mild)
    1. Leads I, aVL, V4, V5, V6
