Created by Willem Einthoven, Einthoven's pentagon is only a slightly better idea than Einthoven's quadrilateral though much worse than Einthoven's triangle. Though it paints a more accurate picture of the heart, Einthoven's pentagon requires way too many leads, thus posing a choking hazard.[1][2][3]
