g.NURSING SKILLS ENHANCEMENT: ECG MONITORING HO1 BASIC INTERPRETATION OF ECG Heart Rate Heart rate can be estimated by dividing 300 by the number of large boxes in the R-R interval. rate = 100 To assess for regularity. e. R-R interval is 3 large boxes. If there is a regular interval between the waves then the rhythm is regular in pattern P waves abnormal presentations PR Interval abnormal presentations QRS Complex abnormal presentations PREPARED BY: TJM RN RM MAN . determine the P-P or R-R waves interval.
