A 40-something healthy male with transient chest squeezing
This ECG is from a man in his 40s who presented with intermittent chest tightness, shortness of breath and diaphoresis.
This ECG shows ST elevation in V1-6 and hyperacute T waves out of proportion to the size of the QRS. There is terminal QRS distortion in V3. The cause was an acute proximal LAD occlusion.
Inferior Subtle ST elevation: straight ST segment, but also no reciprocal ST depression in aVL: which is more important?
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.
