To obtain the highest R/T ratio, for good ECG synchronization, The R/T ratio increased as the angle of lead II axis became further away from the body axis and as the apex electrode and the apex of the heart became a little further apart than the basic placement position. The basic placement position was the lowest in the order of R/T ratios among the five kinds of electrode positions (p < 0.01).
