The delay between OMI and STEMI claims yet another patient’s anterior wall

This ECG is from an elderly woman who presented with chest pain and shortness of breath.

This ECG shows ST elevation in V2 with hyperacute T waves in V2-3. Even though this does not meet STEMI criteria, it is highly suspicious. Serial troponins did rise, pain was ongoing and the ECG evolved to meet STEMI criteria. A 100% mid-LAD occlusion was found to be the cause. Echo showed widespread wall motion abnormalities and reduced ejection fraction.

A woman in her 70s with chest pain

This ECG is from a woman in her 70s who presented with central chest pain. This was the initial ECG.

This ECG shows ST elevation in V1-2 with ST depression in V4-6 as well as I, II and aVF. R wave progression is also poor. V1 is concerning for a hyperacute T wave. The chest pain worsened and the ECG changes evolved to meet STEMI criteria. Troponin was elevated. Catheterisation found a 100% proximal LAD occlusion.
