ECG analysis

Hi there Just wondeirng in a lab we, using different leads we saw the heart beats. we had a normal subject but our aVL lead produced a negative deflection--now this isn't suppose to happen-i constructed my einthoven's triangle and it shows a positive deflection---just wondering what are some possible ...

Body's electrical current

For the magnitudes of ur own human-charge u can measure the deflection in a magnet of known intensity while u move with a known relative velocity. Then get the magnitude of the field produced and then from that u can get the charge. Good luck! I'm curious ...
