This ECG was obtained from a 37-year-old male who was complaining of non-radiating substernal chest pain. He offered no significant medical history. He denied taking any medications. He was hypertensive and bradycardic on arrival in the Emergency Dept.
A paramedic crew responded to the office of a local physician. A 61-year-old male presented with a one-week history of chest pain and shortness of breath.
