This ECG is taken from an 82-year-old man who called 911 because of chest pain. He has an unspecified “cardiac” history, but we do not know the specifics.
This ECG is taken from an elderly man who has a history of complete heart block and AV sequential pacemaker. On the day of this ECG, he presented to the Emergency Department with chest pain and shortness of breath. His vital signs were stable and within normal limits. We do not have information about his treatment or outcome.
SUBTLE ST CHANGES This ECG was obtained from an 87-year-old man who was experiencing chest pain. Due to the subtle ST elevation in Leads II, III, aVF, V5, and V6, (inferior- lateral walls) the ECG was transmitted to the hospital by the EMS crew, and the cath lab was activated. The patient denied previous cardiac history.
Intermittent chest pain. This series of three ECG were taken from a 41-year-old man with a two-week history of intermittent chest pain. At the time of the first ECG, 12:05 pm, he was pain-free. We see a sinus tachycardia at 102 bpm, and has just come under the care of paramedics. There is a very subtle ST sagging and T wave inversion in Lead III, and no other ST changes. He had an uneventful trip to the hospital.
This ECG is from a 65-year-old woman who presented to the Emergency Department with a complaint of chest pain. We have no other clinical information.
This is an interesting teaching ECG on many levels. It is obtained from a man with chest pain. No other history or follow up is available.
This ECG is a good example of an inferior wall M.I. that was confirmed and treated in the cath lab.
The ST segments are elevated in Leads II, III, and aVF, but the amount of elevation may look subtle to some. When the amount of elevation seems small, what other signs can help us recognize acute ST-elevation M.I.?
This ECG shows a common manifestation with inferior wall M.I., BRADYCARDIA. We see the signs of acute inferior wall M.I.
This ECG was obtained from a patient who suffered an obstruction of the circumflex coronary artery. Unfortunately, he was in the approximately 15-18% of the population in whom the circumflex artery is dominant. That means that it connects with the posterior descending artery, perfusing not only the lateral wall of the left ventricle, but also the posterior and inferior walls. In this case, the obstruction is in the midportion of the artery, and the high lateral wall is spared.
This is a very interesting ECG taken from an acute M.I. patient. Your basic level students will be able to appreciate the ST elevation in V1 through V3. Although the elevations are not very high, there are plenty of other abnormalities that point to acute STEMI: the ST segments are flat and there are marked ischemic T waves in the lateral leads: V4 through V6 and I and aVL. The patient was suffering an acute episode of chest pain.
