Title: P WAVE ANANYSIS IN ASYMPTOMATIC HEALTHY ADULT NIGERIAN STUDENTS: A PRELIMINARY STUDY
Authors: Ogwuche, S. A. R.
Egbe, P. E.

Keywords: Electrocardiogram (ECG), P wave duration, P. wave amplitude, prediction equation, asymptomatic

Abstract: The P wave amplitude and duration were measured and analyzed in the 12-lead ECG in a hundred and nine subjects aged between 19 and 30 years. The mean P wave duration was 0.07 ± 0.02 sec. Significant correlation was found between P wave duration and amplitude and various anthropometric measurements. Prediction equation was derived for the mean P wave voltage and the systolic blood pressure. The study has demonstrated the normal range for the P wave duration and amplitude. It thus provides a reference guide for the quantitative interpretations of the P waves of healthy adult Nigerians in Jos.
