This ECG is from a middle aged male who presented with diffuse pain on a background of sickle cell disease.
This ECG shows LVH, diffuse ST depression with ST elevation in aVR and apparrent prolonged QTc due to U waves. The cause was hypokalemia (2.6).
This ECG is from a young woman who presented with status epilepticus seizures and an apparent overdose of bupropion, with possible cocaine ingestion. She was intubated and given propofol and benzodiazepines, which terminated the seizures, and then a PEA arrest was terminated with epinephrine and bicarbonate. This was the repeat ECG on day 3.
