This ECG is from a man in his 30s who presented with a week of chest pain.
This ECG shows T wave inversion in V5-6 with J point notching and a short QT interval. Echo showed global hypokinesis and mild-mod systolic dysfunction. Troponin was elevated. Angiogram was normal. The diagnosis was myocarditis.
This ECG is from a man in his 20s who presented with sudden onset chest pain.
This ECG shows lateral ST elevation. Troponin was elevated. Echo showed a regional wall motion abnormality. Angiogram was normal. The cause was myocarditis.
This ECG is from a woman in her 40s who presented with chest pain that had been waxing and waning over the past 24 hours. She had a history of renal failure on dialysis, hypertension, diabetes and a normal catheterisation a year ago. This was her initial ECG.
This ECG shows sinus tachycardia with nonspecific intraventricular delay, tall QRS and widespread PR segment depression. The ST segments are all discordant apart from V4 and V1. These changes were dynamic over serial ECGs. The cath was again normal. Echo showed a trace of pericardial effusion. The diagnosis was myopericarditis.
Where did they come from?
These ECGs were collected from Free Open Access Medical Education (#FOAMed) blogs, with the permission of their authors. You can find out more about each ECG's source by clicking on it.
Why are they here?
This is an experiment in digital curation. The idea is to collect resources to increase awareness and accessibility. Over time, more ECGs in the collection will be tagged to make it easier to find them and reused in new interactive quizzes.
How can I use these ECGs?
You can use these ECGs for your own learning, teaching or research - as long as you abide by the terms of each ECG's copyright licence as stipulated by the original author.
