how exactly should one determine the axis? if lead I and AVF are not positive is that when you need additional leads?

Rule of thumb

Look at lead I and Lead aVF

if qrs complex is reaching each other it is right axis( RAD) R- reaching

? lead I
? aVF

if qrs is leaving each other it is left axis deviation (LAD)- L- leaving

?Lead I
? aVF
