    I'm trying to discover exactly which part of which IEC standard covers the colour coding of
    ECG leads. Where is it stated that :Red Yellow Green Black White Right Arm Left Arm Left Leg
    Right Leg Chest

    Everyone says it conforms to IEC601-1 or IEC601-1-27 but I cannot find any reference to colour in
    these standards.

    Any ideas?
