The aim of this study was to evaluate the understanding of the term central terminal (CT) and to consider the consequences of this level of understanding. A total of 150 questionnaires was distributed during the 30th International Congress of Electrocardiology 2003, Helsinki, Finland; 42 (28%) of the anonymous questionnaires returned were considered adequate for the purpose of this study. The questionnaire addressed the following areas of interest: (1) the location of the CT; (2) the location of the negative poles of unipolar leads; (3) the naming of the electrocardiogram lead groups; (4) the relationship between the leads and cardiac electrical views; and (5) impact on accuracy of clinical diagnosis. The findings revealed diversity in understanding the basic term, a shift in understanding the term CT to abstract/theoretical understanding, and gaps in understanding the concept of CT and the more recent theories of the cardiac electric field.
