6-lead placement uses the same positions from as the 5-lead standard
placement described above , along with two precordial leads - referred to as
Va and Vb.
The default position of Va - the brown lead - is at the V2 position.
The default position for Vb - the brown/white lead - is at the V5 position.
The lead placement for the Va and Vb lead labels must be appropriate. If
your unit uses other precordial leads for Va and Vb, they may be assigned
in Unit Settings at the Information Center as defaults for your whole unit,
or you may need to assign the new positions on a per-patient basis in the
Patient Window at the Information Center.
