Lead

Payment of a financial obligation earlier than is expected or required.

lead

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.

The ECG lead II has been used in order to plot the ECG power spectrum in Wistar rats.
The absolute and normalized amplitudes of cardiac waves from lead II were also computed to compare the performance of TCREs with traditional cardiac sensing methods.
During this period continuous lead II ECG was recorded and the point was marked to identify the time of standing.
Caption: Figure 2: Examples of lead II and leads [V.sub.1]-[V.sub.3] ECG of the PC6 and ST36 groups minipigs before (baseline) and after the operation and after needle-embedding (NE) and electroacupuncture (EA).
ECG was taken to look for P wave morphology and P was amplitude in lead II, III and aVF and also for P wave axis, R wave amplitude in chest leads from V1 to V6 and RBBB.
After monitoring pulse oximeter (SpO2), ECG (lead II, V) and non-invasive blood pressure, a bilateral ultrasound-guided (L25n/13-6 MHz transducer; SonoSite, Inc.[TM], Bothell, WA, USA) rectus sheath block was performed with a UPA 23 G x 50 mm needle (Temena group, Germany) under a Marsh model target controlled infusion of propofol (2 ng/ml).
(8) The amplitude of the R wave of this bird (rS) was 1.22 mV in lead II. This rS wave amplitude value was greater than the mean value of the healthy pheasants (0.60 mV) and than other values previously reported in avian species, such as Amazon parrots (Amazona species; 0.000.65 mV) (15) and macaws (Anodorhynchus and Am species; 0.25-0.46 mV).

Also, many articles fail to report its true prevalence by restricting investigation either to lead II alone or cite only one or two other leads.
A lead II electrocardiogram was monitored at various intervals throughout the experiment.
Approximately 15 minutes after induction, pronounced ST elevation >2 mm was noticed on the anaesthetic monitor through Lead II and confirmed in CM5.
First of all, this is not Cast Lead II. Far from it.
