Abstract

This study proposes a new precordial chest system in wich the exploring electrode form an aproximately perpendicular plane to the cardiac apical-basal axis (oblique lateri-lateral plane). The established positions are closely related, successively recording the right ventricle, interventricular septun and left ventricle. The method was applied with 20 selected healthy dogs, and the
records were substantially homogeneous in the morphology of the registered waves, despite the wide variations in body conformations and sizes of the
dogs. Some cases of heart diseases are presented, in wich the diagnosis was only possible or complete by using the oblique lateri-lateral plane.
