This ECG was obtained from a healthy 29-year-old man. It shows "benign early repolarization". It demonstrates the typical pattern of widespread ST elevation with a normal concave upward sloped ST segment. There are also prominent U waves in V2 through V4, and T wave inversions in the inferior wall leads.
Benign early repolarization
This ECG was taken from a 60 year old man who was complaining of severe substernal chest pain, radiating to his left arm and a non-productive cough. There was some initial discussion among the EMS crew about the possibility of the ECG showing a "benign early repolarization" pattern because of the concave upward ("smiling") ST segments.
