You are evaluating the electrocardiogram of a 2 year old boy. The patient presented for fever and the ECG was inadvertently ordered on him instead of another patient.

C) Biphasic p wave of 0.12 sec duration in lead V1. This would be indicative of left atrial enlargement. A quick reference guide to ECGs in pediatrics can be found on the algorithms page at http://pemsource.org/algorithms/ under Peds ECG.
