In a normal ECG following waves are present:

1. P Wave: It represents Atrial Depolarisation

2. QRS Wave: It represents Ventricular Depolarisation

3. T Wave: It represents Ventricular Repolarisation.

4. U wave: It represents repolarisation of Purkinje Fibre. It is generally not seen in an ECG as it is very small.

Function: It carries impulses from the Sino Atrial Node (S. A. node) .

b. Bundle of His: These are fibres which originates from the AV node present in the wall of right atrium.

Function: It transfers electrical impulses from the AV node to the ventricles of the heart.
