Right axis deviation

Right Axis Deviation (RAD) is a heart condition where the electrical conduction of the heart is greater than +105 degrees or between -90 degrees and +180 degrees (may be called Indeterminate) or more often extreme Right Axis Deviation. The degrees may be determined by a 12-lead ECG (EKG=German).
