How long would you like to wait for your Occlusion MI to show a STEMI? Sometimes serial ECGs minimizes the delay.

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

This ECG shows sinus rhythm with minimal ST elevation in V1-3 and hyperacute T waves in V2. Serial ECGs evolved to a clear STEMI. The cause was a 100% mid-LAD occlusion.

Tachycardia, fever to 105, and ischemic ST Elevation — a Bridge too Far

This ECG is from a man in his 50s who presented with a high fever and dysonpea.

This ECG shows sinus tachycardia with widespread ST elevation. He was treated for sepsis but serial ECGs and troponins were abnormal. Angiogram showed a myocardial bridge in the mid LAD.

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.

In the ECGquest archives, this ECG has been tagged with: - Dyspnoea Palpitations RSR' Wide QRS RBBB 12-Lead EMergucate CC-BY-NC-SA
ECG of the Week – 8th April 2019 – Interpretation

This ECG is from a woman in her 30s who presented with palpitations and intermittent shortness of breath.

This ECG shows wide QRS with RSR' in V1 and wide S in V6, consistent with RBBB.

An elderly woman transferred to you for chest pain, shortness of breath, and positive troponin – does she need the cath lab now?

This ECG is from an elderly woman who presented with sudden onset shortness of breath after months of inactivity due to a back injury.

This ECG shows sinus tachycardia with large inverted T waves, consistent with right heart strain. The cause was a very large PE.

IVCD, Saddleback STE in III, with reciprocal STD in aVL: Is it pseudoOMI or OMI? Echo with Speckle Tracking gives the answer.

This ECG is from a woman in her 70s who presented with acute chest pain and dyspnoea on a background of hypertension and congestive heart failure.

This ECG shows inferior ST elevation with an abnormally wide QRS (intraventricular conduction delay). The cause was an acute inferior MI.

A Patient with Respiratory Failure and a Computer “Normal” ECG

This ECG is from a patient of unknown age who had recurrent presentations for shortness of breath due to asthma.

This ECG shows subtle ST elevation in III with reciprocal change in aVL. The cause was inferior MI.

In the ECGquest archives, this ECG has been tagged with: - Chest pain Dyspnoea Bradycardia Irregular Normal Axis Absent P waves Hidden P waves Narrow QRS Short PR Change in rhythm Junctional escape Multiple rhythms Sinus arrhythmia Sinus bradycardia 12-Lead Dr Smith's ECG Blog CC BY-NC
What is the Rhythm?

This ECG is from a young man who presented shortly after a 45 min episode of palpitations, shortness of breath, chest pressure and presyncope. He was an athlete.

This ECG shows marked sinus bradycardia with AV dissociation by default (not AV block) with junctional escape beats.

In the ECGquest archives, this ECG has been tagged with: - Chest pain Dyspnoea LA/RA electrode reversal 12-Lead ECG of the Week CC-BY-NC-SA
ECG of the Week – 17th December 2018 – Interpretation

This ECG is from a woman in her 50s who presented with chest pain and dyspnoea.

This ECG shows lead I is completely inverted due to electrode misplacement. The left and right arm electrodes have been swapped accidentally.
