Lead -aVR of Electrocardiogram (ECG): An Orphan Lead

This chapter is designed to provide medical students, professors, and clinicians with a comprehensive understanding of -aVR ECG lead interpretation in diverse clinical scenarios. Until recently, among the twelve electrocardiogram leads, Lead –aVR was overlooked for its use (ECG). The augmented and unipolar limb lead -aVR was designed to obtain specific information from the right ventricle outflow tract (RVOT) and the basal portion of the interventricular septum on an electrocardiogram. The reciprocal information from the left lateral side is provided by lead -aVR, which is covered by the leads aVL, II, V5, and V6. This chapter is a collection of the most important facts about the –aVR lead in an ECG. An investigation of the ST-segment in lead -aVR can help predict the coronary angiographic anatomy in acute coronary syndrome (ACS). In an ACS scenario, lead -aVR provides useful information for risk stratification, diagnosis, prognosis prediction, and outcome. The Lead –aVR could be useful in diagnosing, predicting prognosis, and predicting short- and long-term outcomes in a variety of diseases.
