Changes from the norm in the electrical conduction of the heart — called cardiac axis deviations — are “common” and indicative of poorer outcomes in people with systemic sclerosis-related pulmonary hypertension (SSc-PH), a study reported. Because cardiac axis deviations are easily measured by electrocardiography (ECG), monitoring for such deviations using this common, inexpensive, and non-invasive tool can help to guide patient care, its scientists suggested. The study, “The Prognostic Value of Cardiac Axis Deviation in…
