QRS complex is a group of waves in the ECG and represents ventricular activation. It usually consists of three wave forms. Q wave is an initial negative wave at the onset of the QRS complex. R wave is the first positive wave in a QRS complex and appears at the onset of the QRS complex or following a Q wave. S wave is a second negative wave in a QRS complex. The morphology of QRS complex is useful in interpreting 12-lead ECG because it provides us clinical information regarding heart rate, QRS axis, heart position, rotation, and abnormal conductions in ventricle and so on.
Key Words: ECG; QRS complex; heart rate
