P' wave is represented in V1 by tall, totally positive, narrow and peaked deflexion. It is narrower, more sharply pointed than the P wave of RA enlargement
If the drug therapy fails, or if drug therapy is contraindicated, cardio version may be used. Quick treatment is necessary, as death can result quickly.
