An additional goal of this study was to determine if the measurement from onset of QRS to tallest peak or nadir of QRS is a useful criterion for differentiating aberration from ventricular ectopy. Study Procedures Information from leads MCL1, MCL6, V1, and V6 and intracardiac leads was recorded in all patients. The electrode wires for leads MCL1 and V1 were soldered together, as were the ones for leads MCL6 and V6, because the same spot on the chest is required to record more than 1 lead. Each of the 81 abnormal beats was examined in leads V1, V6, MCL1, and MCL6 for evidence of well-established crite- 23 ria for QRS morphology used to differentiate aberrancy from ventricular ectopy.
