The 12-lead ECG in the emergency medical service setting: How electrode placement and paramedic gender are experienced by women
from Emergency Medicine Journal
The aim of this study was to explore women's attitudes to pre-cordial electrode placement and 12-lead ECG acquisition in the emergency medical service setting. Fifty participants were recruited from university campuses. Demographic data were collected and two ECGs were recorded: one with precordial electrodes positioned on the breast and one with the electrodes under the breast. Participants' attitudes to electrode placement and ECG acquisition were explored in a second questionnaire.
