An attempt at Video Education: Axis Determination

I'm a huge fan of the Khan Academy and regularly watch his videos when I have a question about something in mathematics. Usually it only takes five or so minutes into the video for me to recall how to accomplish the task, and I can move along. I've always wanted to see if I could do the same thing for ECG interpretation.
So here is my inaugural attempt; rapid axis determination using leads I and aVF (assuming you're ok with a ±5° difference):

Nice work, Christopher! I will use this as a reference tool when people ask me about axis determination! Beautifully done!

Thanks! I've got two other vids in the wings waiting on myself to do some post production work.

I love it! I think it will be great when you post the basics because my mind still can't understand even how it works. I can't visualize it. I still don't understand how televisions work either!

I've been reading through your blog and I have been really enjoying it. I just started learning about EKGs. I am prepping for paramedic school and trying to learn a few things before I go. I enjoyed this video and hopefully you do another one soon.
