It does not need the Q wave to be the first deflection at all. Also, note that there can be multiple R waves. Throughout the paper, it will discuss all the wave functions, specifically the R wave, any abnormalities and how every waveform and parts of the body rely on one another to work properly. There are five waveforms: P wave, Q wave, R wave, S wave and T wave. The P wave is the SA node and it is the main starter of the electrical conduction of the heart. This wave is the first thing that is seen on the ECG sheet and shows the atrial depolarization. The Q wave is the downward deflection following the P wave and sometimes it can be seen other times it cannot.…
