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 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 woman in her 70s who presented with sudden nausea, diaphoresis and brief syncope.
This ECG shows subtle concave ST elevation in inferior leads and V4-6. The angiogram was normal, troponins negative and echo showed no wall motion abnormality. The most likely cause was a normal variant.
This ECG is from a man in his 60s who developed hypokalemia during a complicated hospital admission including GI bleed and anaemia.
This ECG shows inverted T waves and inverted U waves with a very prolonged QT. There is subtle ST elevation in inferior and lateral leads. Troponin was elevated, echo showed regional wall motion abnormalities apical and anteriorly. Angiogram showed severe multivessel disease and an apical LAD occlusion of uncertain age. The most likely cause was either a small infarction or takotsubo.
This ECG is from a man in his 60s who presented with chest pain for 48h with diaphoresis.
This ECG shows inferior ST elevation with reciprocal depression in aVL and I. ST depression in V2-4. Deep Q waves inferior leads and tall R waves V1-3. The cause was a completed infarction with 2 likely culprits (RCA and circumflex).
This ECG is from a man in his 50s who presented with intermittent chest pain and shortness of breath for the past 3 days with vomiting.
This ECG shows RBBB with inferior and lateral ST elevation due to an acute MI (occluded OM2).
This ECG is from a man in his 60s who presented with chest pain radiating to the back and nausea/vomiting. He had a history of previous MI and stents.
This ECG shows inferior ST elevation (straightened ST segments) without reciprocal changes, with terminal QRS distortion in inferior leads. The cause was an inferior MI with some posterior involvement.
This ECG is from a patient of unknown age who presented with a syncopal episode and vague chest pain. This was the second ECG taken 24 min later.
This ECG shows subtle inferior ST elevation with reciprocal ST depression in aVL. The cause was a 100% distal RCA occlusion.
This ECG is from an ECG from a patient of unknown age, recorded just before the patient went into VF arrest.
This ECG shows massive concave ST elevation in inferior and lateral leads with ST depression in V2. There is also first degree heart block. The most likely cause was an acute MI.
This ECG is from a man in his 60s who had a witnessed sudden loss of consciousness and awakening.
This ECG shows widespread ST elevation without reciprocal ST depression. Angiography was normal.
This ECG is from a patient who presented with acute chest pain on a background of diabetes.
This ECG shows LVH and inferior ST elevation with depression in aVL (slight). This was new in comparison to the baseline ECG. The cause was most likely a RCA narrowing.
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.
