Heart Axis

Your patient has the following pattern in his ECG: Lead I is positive, leads II and III are negative. There is a persistent S wave in v5 and v6. What's your diagnosis?

Lead I positive, leads II and III negative = extreme left axis deviation.

Extreme left axis deviation + persistent S wave in v5/vv6 = left-anterior hemi-block
