The hexaxial reference system is a diagram that is used to determine the heart's electrical axis in the frontal plane.

Left axis deviation is a condition where the QRS complex is positive in lead I, but negative in lead II. Left axis deviation is also described as an ECG with the mean electrical axis from -30° to -90°. Common causes include left ventricular hypertrophy, Left anterior fascicular block, inferior myocardial infarction, hypertension and emphysema. [1]
