This ECG is from a middle aged man who presented with chest pain. This was the repeat ECG 40 min after arrival.
This ECG shows anterior De Winter T waves. Earlier ST elevation has all but resolved, likely due to transient reperfusion. The cause was a 100% proximal LAD occlusion.
This ECG is from an athletic woman in her 30s who presented with 1.5 hours of substernal chest pressure and nausea. She had no risk factors for ischemia. This was the repeat ECG 44 min later as the pain was resolving after nitroglycerine.
This ECG is from a woman in her 30s presented following a collapse 5 days post-partum. On arrival to the Emergency Department she was hypotensive ( systolic BP ~80 mmHg) with an altered conscious level, complaining of chest pain and headache.
