Summary The Minnesota Code Manual presents a systematic, objective measuring system for electrocardiographic findings in clinincal trials and population studies of cardiovascular disease. The first edition published in 1982 classifies endpoints of clinical trials and characterizes arrhythmias and conduction defects. This edition also provides standard procedure for the codes application by trained medical or technical personnel. In addition, it is used by experienced investigators to teach measurement and coding of the ECG in the Core ECG Lab. The Minnesota Code incorporates standardized measurement r.
