This ECG is from a man who presented with a malfunctioning ICD but no chest pain or dyspnoea.
This ECG shows large T waves out of proportion to the QRS but with a very concave upstroke. This was similar to the baseline ECG. There was no acute infarction.
This ECG is from a man in his 40s who presented with chest discomfort and diaphoresis since waking a few hours earlier, on a background of prior infarction with PCI years ago, active smoking, high cholesterol and hypertension. This was the baseline ECG from 2 years prior.
This ECG is from a man in his 50s presented with 1 hour of post exertional chest pressure associated with diaphoresis and nausea. He had a history of coronary artery disease, diabetes, and dyslipidemia.
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?
