Electrocardiographic parameters were studied in thirty healthy adult Beagles, using conventional and computerized methods and reading the computerized registration printed on paper. The electrocardiographic measurements of the three different tracings were analyzed in lead II. The results obtained showed that there are differences among the three methods for P wave, R wave, QRS complex, QT interval, PR interval and polarity of the T wave. Special attention should be given to these differences, depending on the chosen method.
