Dextrocardia is a congenital malformation where the heart is on the right side of the chest instead of the left. It causes right axis deviation, a completely inverted lead I and absent R wave progression in the chest leads. It looks similar to left and right arm electrode swaps, except that a simple lead misplacement will not have the absent R wave progression.
