Electrocardiogram (Definition)

Electrocardiogram (ecg, ekg) is a print-out of the electrical forces detected by electrodes on the chest wall, as electricity travels through the heart with each heart beat. The electrodes are placed in different positions, and each position "sees" the electrical activity of the heart from its own vantage point. Abnormalities in signal detected at chest surface ...Read more

Usually both right and left ventricles contract together but with rbbb, there is a delay in the spread of the impulse through the right ventricle. This shows as a slight sawtooth appearance of the qrs waveform in the right sided ekg leads. ...Read more
