The ECG is often but not always abnormal in pulmonary arterial hypertension.  The most sensitive feature is RV strain (ST depression and T wave inversion in leads V1 to V3).  Other changes found include right axis deviation, P pulmonale, right bundle branch block, tall R waves especially anteriorly and prolonged QTc.
