Answer

Answer

Once the ECG is completed, it should be reviewed by the operator. If significant issues with the quality of the tracing exist, the cause of the issue should be addressed and the tracing repeated. When this is impractical or impossible, the clinician ordering or reading the ECG should be notified for further guidance.
