This ECG is from a man in his 40s who presented with a 'seizure' after intense sporting activity.
This ECG shows Sinus Bradycardia with inferior massive ST elevation and reciprocal change in aVL and I. Anterior ST elevation as well. The most likely cause was an inferior + right ventricular MI. V2 and V3 were probably reversed.
This ECG is from a man in his 70s who complained of acute chest pain followed by a witnessed cardiac arrest. This ECG was taken after ROSC following 35 min down time.
This ECG shows Shark-fin morphology with RBBB + LAFB and massive anterolateral ST elevation. The cause was an acute proximal LAD occlusion.
This ECG is from a man in his 70s who presented with chest pain that started during bike riding.
This ECG shows subtle ST depression in V2-6 and ST elevation in III. He had multi vessel disease with a near-occlusive culprit RCA lesion.
This ECG is from a middle-aged woman who presented with syncope and hypotension.
This ECG shows sinus tachycardia with inferior ST elevation and reciprocal ST depression in aVL. Also ST elevation in V1 and ST depression in V2-4. The most likely cause was acute inferoposterior MI due to proximal RCA occlusion.
This ECG is from an elderly woman who presented with several hours of chest pain radiating to the back.
This ECG shows flat T waves in aVL but otherwise normal. Troponin was elevated. CT showed no dissection but an area of transmural ischemia. Serial ECGs showed no change. The cause was an occluded OM1.
This ECG is from a woman in her 50s who presented with chest pressure on a background of heart failure and hypertension. BP 223/125.
This ECG shows sinus rhythm, LBBB and anterior ST elevation. Sgarbossa positive but modified sgarbossa negative. Echo showed LVH, troponin did show a rise and fall, MIBI showed normal perfusion. The most likely cause was a type II MI. The ECG changes did not evolve and were likely baseline changes.
This ECG is from a man in his 40s who presented with intermittent chest tightness, shortness of breath and diaphoresis. This was taken the next day after symptoms resolved.
This ECG shows biphasic T waves caused by Wellens' syndrome.
This ECG is from a middle aged man who presented with chest pain and diaphoresis while exercising. He had a VSD repair at age 6.
This ECG shows sinus tachycardia with RBBB + LPFB. ST elevation in III and aVF with reciprocal ST depression in aVL. ST depression in V2-5. The cause was inferoposterior MI, due to severe triple vessel disease and a culprit 100% circumflex occlusion.
This ECG is from a man in his 40s who presented with a cough, shortness of breath and several episodes of chest pressure over the past week or so.
This ECG shows anterior ST elevation and deep QS waves. There was a 100% LAD occlusion that was approximately 2 weeks old.
This ECG is from an elderly male who presented with lethargy and pelvic pain. He was hypotensive (66/31), pulse 80.
This ECG shows widespread ST depression and reciprocal ST elevation in aVR due to diffuse subendocardial ischemia. The most likely cause was septic shock.
This ECG is from a man in his 30s who presented with chest pain and RUQ abdominal pain, on a background of type 1 diabetes. His BSL was high.
This ECG shows sinus tachycardia with a wide QRS, R in aVR, coved ST elevation and peaked T waves. The cause was hyperkalemia.
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.
