How do you calculate a 6 second rhythm strip on an EKG?


The EKG rhythm strips are grids in which time is measured along a horizontal axis. Each small square is 1 mm in length and represents 0.04 seconds, while each larger square is 5 mm in length and represents 0.2 seconds. To calculate a 6 second rhythm strip on an EKG, you need to count the number of R waves in a 6 second strip and multiply by 10.
