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 classic ECG findings of right ventricular strain in the presence of PE are S waves in lead I, Q waves in lead III, and inverted T waves in lead III (S1Q3T3).
For example, ST-segment elevation that is greater in lead III than in lead II suggests RCA involvement, (8,9) and isolated ST-segment depression in leads [V.
The ECG with ST-segment elevation also revealed development of a deep S in lead I and a new Q wave in lead III, but the T-wave was unchanged, thereby not fulfilling the classic "SIQ3T3 pattern" observed in a small number of patients with pulmonary embolism and pneumothorax.
