Prominent U Wave A U wave is part of the normal ventricular complex, but usually very small and less well understood than the other waves (51, 217). It is prominent in most leads in this tracing, but not abnormal. If it is considered in analysis of every tracing, the range of normal will become apparent and minor departures from that will not be over-interpreted. U may be merged with T so that the value given for QT is inappropriate. 50 sec, with a "QTc" of 43 (24). 44 sec, no matter what the rate, there is a good chance that it is really a QU.

To differentiate between block of the whole bundle and only part ofit is arbitrary, and that it is even possible assumes several nearly unprovable definitions (162). The reason left anterior fascicular block seems preferable here is that QRS contour is less distorted than typical of LBBB (160).
