Einthoven’s Triangle & The Augmented Leads

Interestly, even those the Leads in Einthoven's triangle form a 'triangle', notice that when we draw Einthoven's triangle we do NOT connect the edges. This shows that Lead I, Lead II and Lead III are electrically independent.
Introducing the Augmented Voltage Leads
The Augmented Voltage Leads are UNIPOLAR. There is one POSITIVE pole in reference (i.e., average) to two NEGATIVE poles.
