ABSTRACT
The use of the ECG to assess the presence of pulmonary disease in hospital patients has been well established in the literature. Numerous criteria involving nearly all aspects of the electrical complex have been presented. In 472 unselected working adults, this investigation demonstrated that a vertical tendency in the mean frontal plane P wave axis greater than or equal to plus 60° was related to an abnormal one second forced expiratory volume. There was no relationship between a vertical P axis and an abnormal vital capacity. Thus, the EGG may be a useful tool in screening for pulmonary obstructive disease by disclosing verticalization of the P axis.
