The patient has LAFB with intermittent RBBB. 12 s) and in lead V1 every other QRS complex is wider and characterized by an rSR’ complex, characteristic of RBBB.

Unfortunately, all of the ECG criteria for left ventricular hypertrophy have shortcomings, and although they are all relatively specific they are fairly insensitive markers (Table 2). In other words, if the ECG finding is present the patient probably has left ventricular hypertrophy, with most false positive rates < 10%. However, the ECG markers will identify only a relatively small proportion (11–70%) of patients with left ventricular hypertrophy. Right ventricle Several criteria have been developed for detection of right ventricular hypertrophy.
