Normal PR and QT intervals, normal axis at 45 , without ST-segment abnormalities or other waves and intervals. This is a full report. But if you want to report an EKG with more detail, you could expand on each wave, segment and interval. For example: ECG in sinus rhythm, with heart rate of 80 bpm.

What is normal ECG interpretation?
Overview of the normal electrocardiogram (ECG) ECG interpretation includes an assessment of the morphology (appearance) of the waves and intervals on the ECG curve. Therefore, ECG interpretation requires a structured assessment of the waves and intervals.
