Spanish term or phrase: Eje de QRS a -30 (HBLA)
It appears in an ECG report. I think it is:

"QRS axis at - 30 degrees" but the (HBLA) part I´ve not idea. Normally it should give you between two values. It is a faxed copy, and it could say (HBLA) or (HBIA)

Left anterior fascicular block is a cardiac condition, distinguished from left bundle branch block. It is caused by only the anterior half of the bundle of His being defective. It is manifest on the ECG by left axis deviation.
