Anterior-septal wall M.I.

Recent Anterior-Septal Wall M.I. With Right Bundle Branch Block

Thu, 04/18/2013 - 22:17 -- Dawn

This is an ECG from a 95 year old man who was recovering from an anterior-septal wall M.I.  Other clinical data for this patient has been lost, except that he suffered a new right bundle branch block during this M.I.  The ECG shows pathological Q waves in V1, V2, and V3, consistent with permanent damage (necrosis) in the anterior septal wall.  The ST segments in those leads are coved upward.  Even though the J points are not elevated, this ST segment shape suggests recent injury.
