A heavy metal shown to cause learning disabilities, behavioral problems, seizures, and even death in children.The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that 3 to 4 million children had elevated lead levels in their blood in 1978. The number has now been reduced to several hundred thousand, but elevated lead levels in blood is still the leading environmentally induced illness in children.

Federal law that went into effect in 1996 requires sellers and landlords of properties built before 1978 (when lead-based paint became illegal) to do the following before any contract or lease becomes final:

1. Provide a copy of the EPA booklet, “Protect Your Family from Lead in Your Home.”
2. Disclose any known information concerning lead-based paint or lead-based paint hazards.
3. Provide any records and reports on lead-based paint and/or lead-based paint hazards.
4. Include an attachment to the contract or lease (or language inserted in the lease itself) that includes a lead warning statement and confirms that the seller or landlord has complied with all notification requirements.
5. Provide home buyers a 10-day period to conduct a paint inspection or risk assessment for lead-based paint or lead-based paint hazards.

It is associated with ST elevation or T wave inversion in the anterior precordial leads on electrocardiogram and cardiac markers may be minimally elevated.
Placement of right precordial leads in an upper position (second or third intercostal spaces) can increase ECG sensitivity (5).
Also, it should be considered in patients with right precordial leads ([V.
An increase in peak ST-segment elevation was evident on both precordial lead [V.
Electrocardiogram (ECG) showed the with right-axis deviation of the P wave (negative in aVL and lead I and positive in aVR) and of the QRS complex indicating left to right activation and low voltage in the left precordial leads.
Large negative T waves were present in the precordial leads (Fig.

An electrocardiogram showed mild ST-segment elevation with Q waves in the precordial leads and widening of the QRS complex.
After DC, control ECG showed right bundle branch block with epsilon wave in V1 and ST segment depression in precordial leads (V2-V4) (Fig.
An initial electrocardiogram (ECG) demonstrated deep, symmetric T wave inversions in the inferior and lateral leads followed by large negative deflections, of varying amplitude, most prominent in the lateral precordial leads (Figure).
